Sarah and Lucy are gone for the weekend. They're taking in the Nutcracker ballet up in the Clairmont area, and spending the night at Nanny's house besides.

So this morning it was just me and the boys here at the Tate house. We began our day with two hours of Bear Grylls, which is decidedly manly, and later on we'll head out for a ground squirrel hunt. Bowden and I will be armed with our BB guns and Jack and Miles have volunteered to be our ground squirrel hounds. They have very distinct baying, which is apparently unique to the breed. It sounds a lot like crying and complaining.

I need some more ideas for how to make our man time even more memorable and even more MANLY!!! Any ideas? Keep in mind that we are without a vehicle and I'm not gonna spend a dime on this. You'll have to be creative. I need some more ideas. I eagerly await your testosterone drenched suggestions.

You guys could work on a stunning ballet of your own (ballet is very physical and requires great stamina and endurance) to treat the girls to when they return. Free, fun, and frolicsome! I think if you could get Miles up on his toes it would bring the proverbial house down. You would only have to promise him 5 minutes alone with the candy castle to get his cooperation.
