Next stop, Scheels. I can not even begin to tell you how amazing this store was. It is a sporting goods store, with every thing you need for every sport ever imagined...and a home decorating section, a fudge counter with yummy yummy fudge, two fish tanks (fresh water and salt water) and a full ferris wheel!! This was a HUGE store.
These bigger than life statues were outside the building.
One of the fish tanks.
The ferris wheel.
All the Presidents of the United States were displayed on the second floor. You could walk up to each one and part of a speech from that President would play.
There was a shooting range...which the girls were WAY TOO GOOD AT!
There was a mountain with some animals (that were alive and are now stuffed).
There was a simulation station for baseball, golf, soccer and football.
There was also a NASCAR simulator. I highly regret that Gian didn't get to do that! Sorry honey...next time.
And finally a ride on the ferris wheel.
After 2+ hours at Scheels, we decided it was time to eat. So off to the local buffet...which was delish!(No, Tabitha didn't eat that. But I just loved how Brother Turner made everything a learning experience for the girls!)
And then a few photos.
Brother and Sister Turner were a DEFINATE blessing to us that day. Especially me. Just the night before I had "hit a wall" with this trip...exhausted, JO's were over, tired of dealing with Tabitha's grumpiness, tired of smokey gross hotels, tired of tredding through snow AND on top of all that I found out that Charlee was sick with the stomach flu. I prayed hard Saturday night to have a pleasent time at church and to have my soul filled back up. And even though we didn't get to go to church services...we were blessed by meeting these extraordinary people. I will never forget what they did for us that day...and I can only hope to pay it forward to someone else sometime!
