We always have to go to Bass Pro (in Springfield) whenever we’re visiting Branson.
This being the second largest Bass Pro store in the world, it’s a favorite place to visit whenever we’re nearby. And yes, it does take an entire afternoon. 😯 While the guys enjoy browsing and shopping, I enjoy it more like a museum of sorts. It’s full of real (as in once-living) stuffed animals as well as live fish and turtles in tanks… statues… etc. Really, it is pretty impressive. And I enjoyed it more this time around than I have in a while since I got to see it with our little wide-eyed, highly impressed boys. 😉
(I apologize in advance for the not-so-great quality of the photos… [wow, some of these are quite bad ] I was quickly snapping them with an iPod, often while holding a slightly squirmy baby or 2-year-old. 😛 )
