We drove down to Portland/Freeport, Maine this past weekend.  We enjoyed the beautiful weather and did lots of shopping.  We checked out the new Cabela's store in Portland - it was quite impressive....kinda like Bass Pro Shops but 5x better (and I don't really like hunting and fishing stuff).  

The store was HUGE.  There was a mini-mountain in the middle with 100+ taxidermy animals displayed throughout the 4 four seasons around the mountain (it was almost like a little zoo for Gracie).  There was also an aquarium in the back and a sea plane suspended from the ceiling with its prop spinning.  Very cool!  

This place has everything outdoors - from hunting, fishing, kayaks, canoes, hiking, camping, etc.  We were there 2 hours - bought a cooler, a few gifts for the hunter in Kelly's family, Todd got a shirt and hat, and Gracie got her own pink camo pop gun.  We think PaPa Paul needs to come up and check this place out...but we're a little afraid that he'd be in there ALL DAY.
