two bears

we were sitting on the couch listening to conference on sunday when we saw this big black beauty in front of the house. ben and i saw a tiny black bear last year when we were here, but this one was much, much larger--all fattened up for winter! i will try not to think of it's enormity the next time i'm taking my little baby girl out for a walk, all alone (if i am ever brave enough. perhaps they hibernate soon?).

it wandered around the lawn for a while then just sat down for quite some time. then it walked over to the deck and started eating grass (or something). it's amazing how much safer a piece of glass makes one feel when there is a bear ten feet away.

oh, and here's the other bear. she does growl sometimes (but she mostly grunts).

Wow! I'm not so sure I'd be brave enough to go out walking by myself. The 2nd bear is terribly adorable!!! Can't wait to hold her!

Your daughter looks a lot like my little sister.

P.S. I don't think the Ingrid Michaelson song "The way I am" on your playlist is what you were thinking it was.

You sure the black one isn't Benny Boo Boo Bear?

Heh heh.

Terrible joke.
