We are fortunate to live really close to the "grandaddy" of all sporting goods and fishing shops, Bass Pro in Springfield. It's something else...And pretty much a field trip all in itself. It also happens to be one of Josiah's favorite places to visit in the whole wide world. And because it's free we go frequently. Bass Pro has done something pretty neat this year and created a whole little North Pole Village with activities and a free picture with Santa Claus. We went last weekend (it was crazy busy). Josiah made a paper train for the Christmas tree, shot some sort of gun and got to sit with Santa. This Santa was especially good. He really took his time with the kids. Josiah told him that he wanted a Bumble Bee (transformer) and some Indiana Jones toys. Good times.
