Our trip back to Cabelas..
Written on March 21, 2007 by Kevin.
As mentioned in the past, we are always trying to get Rylan out of the house after I get home so that he doesn't feel cooped up all day. It dawned on me yesterday that we had not gone back to Cabelas in a while. Our first trip was posted about here.
For those who do not know about Cabelas, it is simply an outdoor sporting store with quite a bit of stuffed animals and a huge fish tank. We took Rylan to Cabelas so that we could get some food and show him the animals again. The food was OK. We were there later in the evening so it turns out the food was sitting out for a bit. Rylan enjoyed his pizza though and loved sticking his fork into some ketchup and eating it. He enjoyed tasting a bit of strawberry cheesecake fudge that we had a chance to sample. He washed it down with some iced tea which blew us away. A little kiddo that likes iced tea? He amazes us.
We walked around the large store and found just about anything to point at Rylan. He couldn't get enough of it. We snapped photos with all types of animals and we let Rylan run loose through some of the areas as we were curious to see what animals peaked his interest. He really enjoyed looking at everything it seemed and never got scared.
My wife made her way to the center of store which happens to have childrens clothing including shirts that read "Dads little fishing buddy" which would be great for Rylan and one that said "Well Bred" for our daughter on the way. Rylan wasn't too interested though in shopping and decided to run off to a waterfall exhibit that they have which has even more animals. If he had his way, he would have slipped through the fence (one foot spacing between bars) and lived with the animals.
We finished off the trip with a walk through the huge fish aquarium. Rylan did more running than walking and couldn't stop pointing out fish that he liked. From one side to the other we went pointing and talking about the fish. He was quite bummed when we told him it was closing time. It was another successful night giving him something new to dream about at night.
