Thanks for sharing all. These are great stories, keep it coming! I know its hard to pick that "one time", but hearing these stories, even if its "one of the many amazing hard to pick moments", is great to me. I really enjoy it, as I hope you all are as well.
Cranky Bear that warmed my heart right up, seeing the kids enjoying the outdoors. I hope my future kids will do the same one day. I particularly like the picture of your kid with the fake beard crochet. LOL!
Canobie - I had a very similar experience as your son. Only I was quite a bit older. I had just moved to Maine from New Jersey at the age of 21 (only 6 years ago) and I had never really encountered wildlife. Sure I went camping but it was mostly in the New Jersey area and I never encountered wildlife like I did in Maine. To make a long story short, I was in the middle of the woods at my friends homestead having a smoke outside, after only being in Maine for 1 month this was all still VERY new to me, homesteads? the real woods? the dark quiet stuff? Awesome! All of a sudden YIP YIP OUUUUUU. Scared the bejebus out of me. My Maine friends all laughed and said "Silly Jersey kid its only coyotes, nothing to be worried about". I laughed and took it all in. Couple years later had Coyotes in my camp at GSMNP yipping away and sat back and listened. It was awesome!
