Family Fun at Santa's Wonderland in Bass Pro Shop

IMG_5132

We heard that Santa was coming to town...more specifically, to our local Bass Pro Shop and boy-oh-boy..we couldn't miss the chance to stop in and say hello to him. Noah was all excited to go see Santa and to also get to hang out at Bass Pro Shop...he and his Daddy love to go there. I'm a girl and I'll even admit it...it's pretty cool place for the entire family.  We love to eat at the restaurant there, bowl a few pins and then look around at all the cool stuff in the ginormous store.

It was so neat when we first walked in the other night to see the beautiful entryway lit up with Christmas lights and decorations.   And their tree was absolutely gorgeous.

After a few pictures in front of the tree, we headed over to their Santa Land area....
Noah made a B-line to the remote control trucks.

Baby boy was mesmerized watching his big brother drive them....
I'm sure he was thinking---"Man...when I get bigger...that's what I'm gonna do!"

The boys had fun shooting all the targets...

Then it was our turn to walk up and visit with Santa Claus....
and as I told you about in my previous post about Noah....
this is when he did his very thorough interrogation of Santa Claus and questioned his true identity.
Classic Noah, I tell ya...  ;-)

IMG_5190 IMG_5191 IMG_5195 IMG_5199 We wore poor old Santa out that night...between Noah grilling him and then
me stacking all the babies in his lap.
He was a little stressed out with our family visit I'm afraid.
But the picture turned our pretty cute....we'll always cherish it.

After that...we spent the next hour hanging out in the store.
Noah had a blast playing some of the other games.
He and Jody played a few pins in the bowling alley while I looked around
in the store pushing the stroller with the babies.

It was nice because we went on a Monday night when it wasn't very crowded.
Less people means way less stress for this mama when I have all three
of the kiddos in tow in such a big, busy store like this.

Here are some other fun pictures from our night at the Bass Pro Shop and their Santa Land...

Such a fun night we shared as a family...
I am so grateful for times like this that we get to spend together.
Especially at this time of year.

Happy Friday, y'all...
