I somehow forgot to mention...

I saw a moose! I've lived in New England my whole life and I've never, ever, seen a moose.

And then yesterday, as J and I were driving home from Button Bay State Park, it happened! We passed a big cow pasture with really beautiful Holsteins and then, as we came to the edge of the pasture, I saw what looked like a big, brown horse. I was about to say, "Look, J...a horse!!!" but then the giant horse lifted its head and became a moose.

I was driving, so I didn't have a camera handy. And I wasn't about to stop on the side of the road to get a picture...the moose was definitely freaked out by our car, but I've heard stories where moose just got angry at cars. Needless to say, we didn't get a picture.

That's funny--I saw a big cow this morning wandering around the parking lot here at work. And I saw a mother and two brand-new-born calves last weekend by our house.

Hehehehe...I'm so evil.

I didn't even realize you guys HAD moose on the East Coast, but I'm glad you were able to see one! Unless your moose have a different breeding season than our's, I'm betting you saw a cow, because the bulls would be growing their antlers by now.
