| | alright guys....
My wife, inlaws, son, and I all went down south this past weekend for a mini-vacation which involved ALOT of swimming at the hotel pool. We went to Springfield and let me tell you, the HEADQUARTERS for Bass Pro is there. The store there was actually the first one ever built. It is AWESOME!! haha Of course, my son was stuffed from eating at Lambert's (another AWESOME thing to go enjoy in Springfield!) and he threw a fit in Bass Pro b/c he wanted to walk all over and having a 3 y/o walk all over that HUGE store is not a good thing. Could've spent about 4+ hours in there and still not have looked at everything. The next day we saw they had a Catalog store next to the HUGE bass pro and we checked it out. Turns out it's like a discount store for bass pro. Bought me a pair of REDHEAD camo bone-dry insulated overalls, originally $220, but bought them for $30. Yeah! now that's awesome. Nothing wrong with them at all. Could've probably stayed in there a little longer and spend alot more money but didn't want to keep the inlaws waiting.
All in all, Springfield is a great place to visit, if you're ever close by. We also went to an Animal Safari place that was cool. Got about 3 ft. from 5 tigers... that about soiled my pants though. Had all kinds of exotic animals and was just a neat experience.
