Watch out! I got my Red Rider BB Gun

Last night for FHE we took the boys to the Bass Pro Shop. It was SOOOOOO fun! Everyone in our ward has been telling us how they went and took all their kids and how much they enjoyed it. I was thinking... seriously? Isn't it like a big fishing store? I hate fish. However, we went and had a BLAST! It was all decked out for Christmas (I love that the stores do that). We missed Santa Clause by a few minutes, but I don't think Big Brother knows who he is anyway. They had a little TV area where "The Christmas Story" was playing and the kids could sit on chairs or rugs to watch. They had a craft area for the kids to have fun with a little project. They had trains, elfs, snow (little pieces of garbage, that he enjoyed picking up and throwing), they had reindeer, presents, the works. Not only did they have cool Christmas stuff, they also had stuffed bears, wolves, ducks, etc..., waterfalls, fish, a little general store with candy and fudge (made right there for you). They have little shooting games too. The Boss and I played and I think he barely won. Ok... he won by A LOT! He tried to get Big brother to hold the gun and shoot. He wasn't quite interested. The boss now thinks he needs to get Big brother a Red Rider BB Gun for Christmas... I think he's a little young... he could barely hold it up.

The Democrat in me is horrified. Are you getting him a NRA membership for Christmas? You'll shoot your eye out!

Yeah you went! It really was a lot of fun. We would go back just to play the games.

I love that picture. It is too cute. Bass Pro and Cabela's are Justin's all-time favorite stores (he's an avid hunter and gun collector). We've never been during the Christmas season... maybe I won't be so bored if we go now.
