Goose and Geese, Moose and Meese?
Today, Well, you all know how athletic I am (Muffled laughter). First I rode my bike up to our mailboxes (which for all who don't know is a 1/3 mile away) and back, then Rachel and I rode almost to the mailboxes, but then saw Cleo (My dog) had followed us, so I rode her back home. So, Rachel and I rode up to Jewel Basin, and guess who we saw coming down to meet us? Give up? Cleo, our 145 pound dog who is even less athletic then I am. So It took a while but we finally got Cleo home after about 15 mins of painstakingly slow riding. After that we went to go to Jewel Basin again. OK, this is where it gets interesting. WE SAW A MOOSE!!!!!!! We where riding when I saw it "Rachel, look, Rachel, look a moose, over there, look, do you see it? look, oh Rachel do you see it?!" With many little leaps of joy and some claps. Eventually she saw it, then It looked at us and THEN crossed the rode right in front of us!!! It was a smaller female. We kept riding shouting, screaming and singing to everyone who passed by that we saw a moose! We got to Jewel Basin and decided to go farther, then Rachel suggested that we go to the Underhill's house. So we kept riding (By the way as I said before I'm not athletic AT ALL!) We rode, and rode, finally coming to a small creak/river and cooled are feet and splashed are faces. Then we kept going. After a long trip (Beautiful) but long we got to the Underhill's. No car, bad news. So we knocked on the door, then harder Rachel all the while saying "This is the Gestapo, open up!". OK, after 3 miles to the Underhill's (mostly up hill) we where worn out. So we checked the door it was unlocked, See, that's the nice thing about Montana, nobody locks their doors. We went in , Well, Uncle Greg works for Anchor alarms so we avoided the alarm. We helped ourselves to water and I called my mom and told her where we were and to tell the Underhills (They were at are house) that We where drinking their water and using their phone. So we went home which took considerably less time then it it going there. We came home and did what we do at home with the Underhills and Vestals (Besides commenting on other people's blogs) sat on the roof and sang.
