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.

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.

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!

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?

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
