For the first time in literally months, we found ourselves with a free Saturday. We decided to seize the day and we both took off early from work Friday and headed for one of our favorite places, Teton Campground. We have so many happy family memories there, but it was just as fun with only the two of us. The weather has turned very autumn-ish this past week and we even had our first early morning freeze, so some people thought we were crazy. It was a gorgeous day Friday though, and it always warms up during the day so we were excited to get out in the beauties of nature!
As we were eating breakfast Greg got up to get something and suddenly became very quiet and motioned for me to come over to him. There, in the campsite right next to us was a moose! He was what I call "a teenage moose" because moose stay with their mothers for 2 years and this guy had small antlers. He walked until he got to the campsite directly across from ours before he stopped to eat. By this time, 2 of the other campers had also spotted him and we all had our cameras out. He seemed to love the attention and as he walked very closely passed a woman taking pictures of him he actually stopped and looked right at her. She was kind of freaked out and slowly backed up, but then he just kept walking. It was later that we realized his mother was also in the campsite next to us eating in some trees. We were a little afraid that she would be protective of her baby, but she wasn't at all and watched him with only slight interest. If he wandered too far though, she'd go over by him. By the way, this is my messy camping hair and no make up look.
So that was our fun weekend. I saw a thing on Pinterest that said something like The best part of being married is that you get to have a sleepover with your best friend every night. I couldn't agree more, but having a campout with your best friend is pretty great too!
