I can't sleep
Random Moose shot from our Alta hike a month ago. We've seen moose almost every time we've been in Little Cottonwood this summer. A few nights ago when on a very fun hike with the Creers we saw a momma and baby moose! We always see some deer and did I mention we saw a coyote earlier this week as we were driving up, we slowed down, and with no worries in the world, it was a little deliriously just strutting across the road, almost against our car. Did you all know my husband is a moose magnet (and wild turkey and deer, but mainly moose). If you want to see a moose, bring AK along and it's a guaranteed moose-spot. He's nearly run one over, lucky the moose awoke and got up, or else he really would have run right over it! (Summer 2002, Big Emma at Snowbird with Kate, Harrison, Holden, and baby Weston! don't we have those pics somewhere?)
I got this quiz from my darling friend Mandy Davis from Phoenix/Interact days. Yet another one, I know, but here goes...I changed # 2 because it was kind of creepy, otherwise this quiz is random enough and different. Let me know if you fill it out and post.
1. Do you like cheese? Unfortunately, yes! I could be a frenchie and eat all of the stinky cheese daily.
2. Favorite actor/actress? Matt Damon (I can't wait to see the new Bourne!)
3. Do you own a gun? No, definitely not a gun fan. But my boys have light sabers, so maybe I am protected? hee

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? Yes. Especially since the only time I go to the doctor is for gyno appointments and for the kids' shots!
6. What do you think of hot dogs? Gross, I try not to think of all of the bones and cartiledge and yuckies of the pig that goes into them, when I feed them to my kids at bbq's.
