A Black Bear Came to Visit Us for Breakfast

On Friday we packed up the dog and headed to my best friend's house in PA.  Sadie decided the car ride would be a perfect place to take a nap

Saturday we headed to the water park and boy did my feet hurt.  I had water shoes on but we did at least about 8 hours of walking up hills while dragging tubes with us.  Talk about a freaking workout.  But it was totally worth it.  We came back to the house and fired up the grill and ate some good grub along with some pina colada that yours truly whipped up!

Those pina coladas were so freaking good that I have decided to make those my signature drink at my 30th birthday party, that I have yet to finalize ANY details for which is also next week.

after a long Saturday night we hit the sack.  The next morning as we all got up we just lounged on the sofa while chit chatting.  Finally we decided to get off our lazy bums to make breakfast and as my friend turned into the kitchen she started yelling "THERE IS A BLACK BEAR, THERE IS A BLACK BEAR!!!!!"

We all go running into the kitchen and as we look through sliding doors, this is what we see:

OMG we couldn't believe our eyes!!!  This black bear cub was just walking around on deck sniffing plates and cups that were left out.  Our fault of course since we didn't properly clean up.  Now we know for next time.  We are use to seeing deer but never a bear, a black bear at that!

We then told the bear that the bacon and eggs we were making were NOT for him, so he gingerly climbed over the deck and dropped down to the floor and was gone!

After the coast was clear, we headed out to see if we can see where the bear went.  We didn't see him at all so he must have went into the woods hopefully to tell Mama Bear that we were good people and not to come back to the house to make us shit our pants.

After this whole fiasco of the black bear, we packed up and headed to the wing festival.  It was fantastic and we ate so many different flavor sauces for buffalo wings.  It was such a fun event and the heartburn I had after was totally worth it.  Can't wait to go back to it next year again.. Up next is the Garlic festival which we have gone to before.  I always get awesome garlic salt seasonings there that are sooooo yummy.

So, that was our weekend in a nutshell.  How was yours? Did you happen to see a black bear?

ok call me crazy but that would have been cool to see. My dad has been dying to see a black bear (Colorado tradition) for as long as I can remember and it hasn't happened yet.

I always find out at festivals after the fact. Wings are my WEAKNESS! I had them 3 times last week for my birthday - LOL

I'm surprised you didnt try to make friends with the bear and bring in him to cuddle with
