There's more than one way to skin a cat...

The Monte L. Bean Life Science museum at the BYU campus can be described in one word: Cool! (Well, once you get over the whole "these were once real live animals that are now dead and stuffed" thing.)

Why is it so fun you may ask? Well what could be more entertaining than walking around posing with or pretending you ARE the animals????


I don't know why I find this one so amusing...

DeAnna with an ACTUAL cougar... not the ones in her imagination.

(She swears that since we live on the mountain, these things prowl around our neighborhood!)

Way to go Miss Dee, stare your fears right in the face!

I have to say that Michael got the most into this... I took tons of pics of him imitating the animals with no prompting at all... he was seriously, a hoot! (I am not sure how amused the museum employees were with us, but hey, qué será, será.)

This last picture is really just to show Nana that just like everyone else in Utah, (except for her), we too have seen a moose... granted it's a dead moose, but it IS none-the-less, a moose. :)

(***Thanks Ruthanne for telling us about this place :)***)
