Last Sunrise of 2014…

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!  We sure did!  Besides dealing with crouping cold, one kid with pneumonia and another with a sinus infection, we made the best of our situation and had a wonderful time with friends and family over the past couple of weeks.  Markus and I were even able to get away for a couple of hours in the wee hours of the morning of New Years Eve…IMG_4840IMG_4860

On this particular day we had the privilege of watching this big boar grizzly bear for about 30 minutes.

And I ended up with my first case of true lens envy!  lol

Still it was quite an exciting time for our family to watch this hungry guy do a bit of foraging while moving through.
