wildlife, literally. . . WIlD!

there were lots of fun animals on our trip!
i take that back. . . 
most were fun but there was one little evil animal 
that you'll have to stick with me to hear more about.
early one morning we got up in time to take the duckies and geese some breakfast.
june's favorite animal is a duck so she couldn't believe there were
 so many real ones for her sweet eyes to see.
she kept pointing and saying "duh-duh-duh" and just going crazy for each and everyone.
probably the most loving from afar they have ever received.
later that morning, noah and i were taking out the trash and saw this guy!
he of course ran off into the woods 
as soon as he saw us but 
we found him and brought him some breakfast too.
clearly, these little deer are quite comfortable in their 
condo world and i'm sure this was not a first 
but we felt very 'deer whisper-y'.
a priceless memory for sure!
this giant wooden bear lived outside of our condo and
 it was by far junie's favorite animal of the entire trip.
she begged to touch him every time we were outside.
she loves bears too!
later in the week we went on a mountainside tour 
on the back of some very nice horses.
it was a beautiful little trip up the mountains, so peaceful
 and relaxing and another treasured memory.
june did not go but just got to be part of the picture.
are you crazy?
you know me. . . that would never happen.
she did however get to ride this little toot of a pony.
have you seen these and thought how precious and cute. . .
think again.
with andy's death grip on june i thought this would be the 
funnest thing ever for our little adventure baby.
boy, was i wrong!
she got bucked off.
i'm not even joking and i'm clearly not over it yet.
thankfully the Lord's and andy's death grip was strong enough that 
not even a little hair on her sweet head was harmed but talk about a mama bear moment.
good grief.
after the worst experience of my life we all tried 
to forget about it with a little swinging.
it worked for june but not yet for me.
stayed tuned for more posts!
promising to be less dramatic and free of buckin' broncos. :)
