Annual trip

With the Dougie Douger to shop for the mama
This is probably at least 10 years going strong! 
We always have fun and always have to buy something for one (or both) of us. 

This year we had a nice little surprise when we heard someone was over at Cabellas. 
Guess who??? 

Batman Ben! Haha. 
I got a tour of the store. The real fish, the hunting game and his new light! 
That store is huge. It even has a cafe (maybe I need to get out more) but I was impressed. Haha

And that is a wrap for the annual dad daughter shopping adventure. Until next year!
