Boys' Weekend

My wife left us again this weekend. She flew to Wisconsin to participate in a bachelorette party for her sister. While she was off doing God-Knows-What with a bunch of wild and crazy women, the Shepard boys were partying at home. No strippers for us. Most of us didn't even get to drink any alcohol.

But we did, go play basketball....

and ... hung out on the roof.

and went to the Colorado Mammoth game.

We also watched hockey and football on T.V. We watched Dawn of the Dinosaurs on DVD. We even put up a new garage door opener (after taking down the old one which died on us this past week).

I taught Tyler how to make a frozen pizza this weekend, and he made the family dinner tonight.

Anyway, we had a fun time, but we are extremely glad that Mommy is now home with us.


  1. We're going to a Mammoth game in February! And we're watching Dawn of the Dinosaurs this weekend. :-) I don't think we're going to be hanging out on the roof anytime soon, though. Too snowy. I like your wreath (please tell your beautiful and talented wife that I would like to know where she got it).

  2. Wow. Amazing. It is very possible that we will go to another Mammoth game in February and we will certainly see Dawn of the Dinosaurs again (and again and again and again)

    I could ask my wife where she got the wreath, but she would just tell me that she didn't get it. Her not-so-beautiful not-so-talented husband got it for her.

  3. Well, could you please ask your beautiful and talented wife's husband where he got it, and then tell me? Or perhaps he could just get one for me, too.

  4. Well, according to my beautiful and talented wife's ugly and not-so-talented husband, he got it at the Vail Foundation's Silent Auction a few years ago. It is supposedly one-of-a-kind. Some artistically inclined person from Vail made it to donate to the silent auction. It didn't sell, so my beautiful and talented wife's ugly and not-so-talented husband picked it up "cheap" (compared to what they were asking for it).

    Not sure I believe him, but that is what he told me.

  5. Hmmm. Well I guess you're just going to have to ask your beautiful and talented wife's husband to take some good close-ups so I can try to duplicate it myself. Although I suppose you boys were probably up on the roof taking that beautiful wreath down, so it's probably in storage and not available for close-up picture taking...
