It's no secret that at the moment, there isn't a daddy in our home. Sometimes, (okay, most times) I feel a little bad that Collin doesn't get to experience father son bonding moments yet so, on occasion, I try to make it up to him a little. Admittedly, I'm a poor excuse for the ruggedly outdoorsy, manly type, but at least we both have fun! Along that line, I give you... Our first (yep, mine too) trip to Cabella's. What? It seemed like a "manly" thing to do...
First we started with lunch. Okay, that part might be girly, but if you know what happens when you drag a hungry 2-year old through a VERY large department store, you'll agree that I had no choice.
After our bellies were full, and Collin had patiently given "5" and "stones" to every one passing by that thought he was darling (it happens a lot cuz, well, he is), we started to wander around. I kinda wish someone had told me about THIS little guy before we got there:
As it was, Collin, who was running full throttle in front of me, turned the corner, stopped dead in his tracks, screamed and jumped into my arms. :) Apparently, polar bears on TV and in books are cute and cuddly, but angry polar bears? Not a fan.
After a little more wandering, we came upon this little fellow:
Collin was more than happy to sit in his lap and pose for mommy. Also a girlie thing to do, but give me a break, I'm trying!
Next up? I think we'll try fishing. Or, maybe I'll just leave that to grandpa and the uncles...
