THIS will wake you up in the morning...

I looked up this morning while washing my hands at the kitchen sink to be totally shocked by the sight of a moose standing directly in front of our house. I think I actually screamed since my mind could not comprehend what it was seeing for a few seconds (a dog the size of a small car???). After spending some time checking out our neighbors back yard across the street, the big guy decided to come over and enjoy some greenery from our yard-- much to Logan and Thad's delight. Since our backyard is fenced, we lost track of him when he went between our next door neighbor's house and ours.



What a crazy year it has been in our "inside the city limits" neighborhood-- forced forest fire evacuation, record breaking snow, and now giant wildlife wandering the streets. Makes for lots of excitement, expecially for the boys!


P.S. Logan informs me he LOVES moose (and now he will pretend to be a GIANT MOOSE for the remainder of the day).

Wow!!I can imagine that this would be startling! How neat that you could see them so close (and still be protected by the walls of your home). I can't wait to hear the stories of Logan's newest identity!

Ok, now you're totally coming to dinner to feast on moose with us! ;) Bet the moose sighting even trumped garbage day...

No fair! I've been wanting to see a Moose in person foryers and I've never seen one. How cool!!

Your crazy year makes for lots of exciting blog posts, too!
I actually feel bad for the guy, now that I'm looking at the pics... He's probably wondering where the heck he is and how the heck he got there! Well, I'm glad no one got trampled, hearing about Craig getting so close really made me worry...

I told Craig, too bad he didn't have his gun (and a tag), because moose meat IS delicious!! :) WaHoo!

I am so jealous! I have never seen a Moose either and you saw one right in your front yard. I didn't realize that Spokane was so wild and natural! All I get to see are a couple of squirrels and the bunnies that run rampant in our city.
I am curious to know how Logan dressed up like a Moose- brown sweat pants and a fur coat?
