I wish I had my Camera!!

Saturday evening around 6:00 the kids and I were heading to the grocery store. We were on a small road a few miles from our house and you will never believe what we saw. We saw a momma bear and four baby bears. I could not believe it. It was so cool.

Well it was cool since we were in the car, but it would have been really scary if we were in the middle of the woods. It seems that black bear keep getting more and more populated in our area. We are already completely over run with deer, now it will be bear too.

It was still exciting seeing them and the kids were really excited. I pulled off on the side of the road to see if we could see them in the woods and Emma started crying, she was scared they could get in the car. Now Travis wishes he could see them. Too bad I didn't have my camera, well its probably good because I would have wrecked trying to take a picture.

It's amazing how close they are coming to where people live nowadays!!
There was one spotted in (of all places) our local Walmart parking lot a few weeks ago!!
(Going in for shampoo and deodorant, maybe? LOL)

There was one in the next county over a couple years ago that went thru the automatic doors in the emergency room of the hospital!! Could you imagine? I have worked the ER since then and I always thought about that. You never know what could venture thru those doors!!


I do wish you had your camera also! I am sure however that this site will be very vivid in your mind for the rest of your life!!

Love ya,
