Things to Do When It's Cold Outside {2. Go to Scheels}

On a side note, did you know that Scheels has shopping carts? We had no idea until we forgot our stroller and thought we were doomed to chasing a toddler around all day.

There are feedings daily at  2 p.m. everyday for the saltwater fish with a live diver in the aquarium on Sundays. And the same thing only at 3 p.m. daily  for the freshwater fish with a live diver in the aquarium on Saturdays.

I'm not really sure about the appeal of the presidents to children or adults really, but the buttons are sure fun to push.
