Moms & Babies

I had such a great long weekend with my mom and Willow. Jon unfortunately worked all weekend so I was super happy to have mom to keep us company. We went into town and visited a couple of shops and took in the beauty of the fog and rain hovering over the lake.

The next day I had to take mom out to go look for bears. I drove to the same spot where I saw the mama the day before and she wasn't there! So we drove to a lake to go check out their campground and take in the scenery. On the way back we saw the mama!! She was at the same spot just on the other side of the road... and she had her cubs with her!!! Our hearts instantly turned to mush, these cubs were smaller than my cat. We watched them play with one another and race up the trees as fast as they could. The mom just sat there eating while watching her babes learn and play. They went into the woods shortly after but we could still see them. The cubs were getting to good at climbing the trees and going up very high so the mom would climb up to try and bring them down. I was so nervous for her because she is so heavy and was climbing these tiny trees. But she is an old pro. She climbed a tree at one point to check her surroundings and make sure her cubs were safe. She did a good scan and her cubs quickly followed suit and were climbing all over her. I couldn't even handle the cuteness.

Warning: the following pictures will make you melt

I know, too cute for words!!

After that amazing morning we headed into town to do some more shopping and eating.

Such a fun day! Jon & I went to a social that night and danced up a storm while my mom babysat Willow. Thanks for the fun weekend mom! Love you.
