You look utterly beaten and defeated, but i think a few more glasses of "medicine" should change you demeanor.
From the looks of the posted dialogue Mr. Gayne Young seems like a overly sarcastic parent only stunting the further knowledge of his child.
the caption for # 3 is soooooo funny!!
came back to look at this again...even better the 2nd time around...really funny stuff...I found your Zebra posts...check them out
After I read your zebra stuff I had to come back to this one. Still funny! Keep em up
I have a 5 year old daughter and a 2 year old son and can relate to this experience completely. This has been one of my favorite photo essays to date. From the mouths of babes hu. Keep up the great work.
I came back to read this one again today. Still just as funny.
Excellent story, Gayne, Reminds me of my first visit to Bass Pro with my three year old son (now fourteen). He relieved himself in the bathroom of one of the campers on display. Evidently he wasn't the only one, because BPS doesn't sell campers anymore, at least not here in Springfield. Thanks for the memories!
Funny, funny writing and cute. cute kids!!!!!!!!!!!
We have two of those in our house!!Great Pics!
Hey Carson. Are you a dog? If so youre a pretty dog. I bet you'd like playing with kids
Freaking hillarious, reminds me of the time my father took me to Sears Roebuck 40 years ago. Well alsmost, except he was drinking beer from a can.
Hey Gayne - do you have your own blog or do you just put these things wherever? Youre under a different catagory every time i check
Kids LOVE to go to Bass Pro with Dad...great photo op...your kids are adorable and captions are really funny...waiting on more...
Gayne, how about letting Kody and me babysit your kids for a weekend, you wouldn't have to say "mmmmmmmm...no." and I sure it would give you and your wife a chance to just be together to try and figure out what we could teach those kids. I'm sure it would be instructive for the kids, Kody and me, oh, and you and your wife. ;-) what do you think Kody?
Want to thank everyone for posting comments. I enjoy reading them. Do me a favor and pass the blog on to your friends. Hold on, "I'm on the computer! Go take a bath!" "Five more minutes?" "Let me think....mmmmmm....no."
Too funny. Love this blog.
Good thing its a big store i guess. plus if you get too bored you can always drop a line in the tanks they have throughout the store. might wanna try that when you plan on leaving soon though
I hope you realize that your children have decades to get even with you!
I have a photo of my son with camo Santa at Cabelas. It is one of my favorites. Little man is amazing. Everything is new and exciting for him. I am excited for the day that I can come home and take him to new places to explore.
Good work Gayne. Your kids appreciate and need your time more than anyone else ever will.
Cute kids! Did you rent them for the day? Or do they take after their Fed-X driver? Just kidding, only a real dad could know the true joy of shopping with his childeren and laughs it would bring the people who read about it!
Seeing you stressed out & having a big blade sitting in front of you to tell the truth I was kind of worried to hit the Read More button. Funny stuff I undrstand I have 4 young boys to take them shopping is crazy!
Traveling anywhere with kids--the woods, a museum, Bass Pro Shops--is a challenge. Often times, it becomes less about the destination (or your own sanity) and more about the smiles of your loved ones. Hunting and fishing get bogged down so often with discussions on politics, ethics, and general "mine is better than yours" bragging. Not that those discussion aren't valuable and without merit, but it's also good to be reminded every now and then (with galleries like this) why we truly love these sports. There's a wide-eyed sense of wonder when kids look at big animal trophies that never gets old. Nice work.
OMG!! You make my day every time I read your photo comments. Everyone should start their day with a little (or a lot!) of laughter. Eric Aichele said it all..."Comedy Gold."
The kids are cute. I got a good laugh this morning before dealing with a school full of kids.
Huh, good point! Hemingway does look like an innebriated Santa on his day off from working at the mall.
(Yes, I do know that was close to blasphemy.)
Like your comment on the lions. Have Outdoor Life send you after a couple. Bet it'd be funny
Hey Bo, I thought I had it figured out also. Made a steer out of a real good longhorn bull years ago. I have kept him for going on 14 years but the guy my daughter brought home was so city slicker he didn't get it.
Thank you for all hearty chuckles, brought back a lot of memories from the great times with my kids. They will wear you out at times but enjoy it does not last long enough.
Really funny...those are 2 good looking kids!!! Always enjoy your posts...keep on writing....
That was great Gayne! I'm sure every Dad who reads it will be smiling and shaking their heads in agreement. Kids....you gotta love em'!
it looks like the beer has already got to him if its that bad now wait till his daughter hits puberty you need aa because you need to be sober while your polishing your gun when the boys invade your home.
In response to Flatbed, I have haD that all planned out since my daughter was about three. I will point out each deer head in my and tell him how far away it was and that it never saw me. Then I will ask him if he knows what an Agent Orange moment is. I figure if he doesn't have the deer in the headlights look by then, I will tell him that I have to take him hunting with me sometime SOON. If he accepts, he can date my daughter, most likely without fear, or at least a lot of fear, you know, a reasonable amount.
Just wait Gayne, it won't be long before that little cutie will be bringing some hairy legged boy home for you to meet. Then it will be where is my little princess.
You put tears into my eyes. So, when is the trip to Cabela's?
Gayne, these are the smooth sailing days of parenthood. Try to be strong because there is good news and bad news to come. It will seem like no time before they are all grown up. Then, they ask for the car keys! That can truly drive you to drink.
That is hilarious, I can tell he is a father. I can hear my own kids when they were younger with the inflection those kids had as they said "Dad" making it two syllables. Too funny, I had my wife and my daughter both read this three thumbs up.
I like the Q&A from the kids
Oh my god that's funny stuff. Like the pict of gayne with beer.
With his wife shopping three complexes over, Gayne decides to spend some time (too much time) with his kids at Bass Pro Shop.
