So Sweet!

I just had to post this article a friend sent it to me. The couple riding their bikes, who took the pictures, were really lucky mama moose didn't charge them.

Hello, boss I cannot come in to work today.

There was a moose born on my front lawn and the Mom won't let me out of the house!!!!

Naubinway, MI, is about 40 miles west of the Mackinaw bridge in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In my 33 years in Michigan 's Upper Peninsula , I have never seen a new-born baby moose. This one was not even a half mile from our house. The mother picked a small, quiet neighborhood, and had her baby in a front yard just off US 2, at 5:30 am.

Allen and I were out bike riding when we came upon the pair. The lady across the street from this house told us she saw it being born. We saw them at 5:30 PM. So the little one was 12 hours old. What an awesome place we live in to see such a sight.

Makes it really tough to use your front door, though!
