I would have loved to have said: "Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my", but the Fin, Feather, and Fur Outfitters were all out of lions and tigers. I took my 11yr old Boy Scouts to this fun and amazing store for scouts tonight. (Thanks Jack for the idea and taking me there earlier to "scout" it out!) They needed to identify 10 animals native to their location. Ok, so I've never seen a bear in the Creepy Woods, but hey, it could happen! Also the book never states that the animals have to actually be alive. I thought the fact that they looked alive was good! I will apologize for the blurry shots. I think the lighting had everything to do with it, not the crummy photographer. There were foxes, turkeys, deer, moose, elk, many different bears, groundhogs, beaver, ducks, and a ton of others that I can't remember! Oh, and a zebra, but I'm really sure they won't see those roaming the streets of Ashland.
Braxton and Daniel hanging over the balcony..can you see the fox with the grouse in it's mouth? How about the bear trying to grab a hornet's nest? I can't imagine a bear would be that dumb!
Giving "bunny ears" to the bear is fine....I would bet it's the only time in your life that will happen!
What everyone needs above their fireplace..a Moose
Finally, this scout leader and her helper (Stacy) just couldn't resist the hat section. I asked the scouts if they wanted to try some hats on...that was a big....Umm..no thanks. After seeing this picture, I understand why. We had a ton of fun and the boys enjoyed the "guy" stuff.
