On Saturday, dh took all six kids to Cabela’s with him.  While he shopped for boots and salivated over the rest of the store, the kids took in the large collections and displays of stuffed-and-mounted animals, fish, and birds.  When they reached the aquarium, our five-year-old daughter Dee pointed and said,

 “Look!  It’s the animals they haven’t killed yet!”

    That is to funny!!! Ahh, out of the mouths of babes! 🙂
    Did you watch Pres. Hinckley’s funeral Saturday? I thought it was wonderful. Our seven year old was in the room but, not really watching it, I assumed that he wasn’t really listening either because he was quietly playing with some toys. Then he suddenly ran upstairs to his room, came back down with a small picture of Pres. Hinckley that was on his bookcase and sat on the couch, clutching it to his chest and watched the rest of it with us. It brought tears to our eyes to know how much he loved him.

    My boys love Cabela’s. I tolerate it. J especially loves that there is a jungle section in the back with a painting of an elephant, since they don’t have a real one!

    Cabela’s is cool. They should probably require people to show a recommend before they let them in the door.

    Last week I went to the grand opening of a new Bass Pro Shop (they’re like Cabela’s) in Baton Rouge, LA. In one evening you could meet three different NASCAR drivers, Miss Louisiana, winners of the BassMaster fishing championship from the past five years, and listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd, live. It was a massive redneck convention, and I felt right at home. I think they sell waders just so you can get through the all the testosterone that is sloshing around.
