Celebrating Daddy's Birthday...May 2010

I got out of bed one day and Dad said we were going somewhere. But he said it was a surprise. A little bit later, he spilled the beans and said we were going to Cabela's. We were all so excited. We had never been there before. On the way, Chauntel and I were writing notes to each other. After that we listened to a Bible tape. Next we ate out at Taco bell. We left there and went to Cabela's. After awhile we were there. This is a picture of us getting ready to go in. We all got a candy before we went in. The very first picture above is inside Cabela's.

We went in and looked at this mountain of animals. It was awesome, I thought. We looked around for a long, long time and then we went upstairs and looked around for a long, long time. Mom fed baby Jared while we were trying out the tents. Mom got a picture of Chauntel, Camille, Garret, and I in a tent. But we did not put it on this post. Then we got this picture. Then we pretty much left. We got popcorn first. We went into the van and left. Mom and Dad were whispering in the front. But us kids found out we were going the wrong way home and that was the way to the ferry. Blayne knew the way there, that's how we guessed; because he'd been there before with my Dad. We were right. We were going to a island and it was called Anderson Island. My Dad has worked up there several times when he worked for R&R and wanted to show it to us.
This is us on the ferry. It was very sunny.

This is the store where we got candy. We call it the "penny candy store" because they have candy for a penny. Whenever my Dad worked there, we would wait for him to bring us penny candy. All of us kids got to go there for ourselves this time and pick out our own bag of penny candy. The picture at the bottom is special because that is where my Dad swam. Guess what it is called? It is called "The Swimming Hole."

  1. Looks like a very fun day!!

  2. A very good picture of the family in Cabela's. It's hard for us to get a good picture with everybody smiling with a big family:) That penny candy was very good. Thank you Ramona and Zac!! We went on a ferry when we went to New Hampshire. It was awesome. "The swimming hole," reminds me of "On the Banks of Plum Creek" Laura Ingalls Wilder book. Come over soon, Tara.

  3. I really enjoyed reading about your trip to Cabela's. Alexa is a very good writer!

  4. Hey we were just there on Memorial Day weekend!! Look forward to reading your blog:) You can find me here too~
