moose.

this afternoon i pulled up to the house and discovered visitors hanging out on my neighbors lawn. the baby moose was munching on some bushes and the mama moose was peeing. there were moose in the neighborhood a few years ago but we haven't seen them in awhile so it was a nice suprise. we love getting visits from critters. a porcupine was running around last summer while the kids were riding there bikes. they scared it into a bush...

That's really neat. They seem pretty tame with the dog and people so close.

That's one of the wierdest looking animals on the planet.

Crazy... I remember the first time I saw a moose running around a city... it was in Rexburg... my dad, sis and I were following it like it was a movie star. True Californians... Living in Utah for the last five years, I've kind of got used to the whole wild animal running through the neighborhood thing. There is a back road from Nicks house to my parents and deer are always on it. I'm just waiting to ruin my new car!
