We went to Bass Pro Shop on Veterans Day and Santa was there. William didn't like it him so much and Shawn didn't care one way or the other. What Shawn did like was that they had toys for him to play with. They have a shooting game and a huge race track with cars. Not to mention that they always have the Huge Fish tank which the whole family enjoys:)

New Gate

William likes to shake the gate, but when he noticed that he was being filmed he just laughed.

Veterans day program

Shawn's School did a Veterans Celebration at the all wars memorial on base. They sang songs and gave little speeches it was very cute and longer then expected.
Shawn was one of the leaders for his class to lead everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance

Go Cart fun
