Man Post No. 1

1-IMG_1101

This picture looks like something you’d see in a 1980s agriculture campaign.  Jared looks so cool, yes he does.

Anyway, due to recent criticism (from the males in the household), I’ve decided to do a man post.  I’m sure my many male readers (ha!) will appreciate the following stream of pictures.

Nathan had to renew his passport, so a trip to Uruguay (the closest country) was in order earlier this week.

This was a perfect opportunity for Jared to visit some of the farms and expose Nathan to soybean harvest up north.  They also spent a few early mornings loading cattle & delivering bulls.

The man in the next picture looks highly skilled in Flamenco Dance.

Real Argentine gauchos (cowboys)…

I’m pretty sure Jared was talking to me in this next picture.  He called one morning at 6 AM to check on us.  I wasn’t overly thrilled, let’s be honest - a 6 AM wake-up call was what it was.  (But hey, he worries about his girls, so that’s a good thing, and I like hearing his voice when he’s gone).

They had to stop at a tire shop.  This looks interesting.

Their last day was spent in El Quebracho, a cattle ranch…with goats, too.

The manager at El Quebracho celebrated their arrival with a traditional asado (grilled meat barbecue).

Check-out their hats.  These gauchos equate to fashion.

This wouldn’t be a man post without a final picture of tantalizing pleasure.

Um....yeah....no complaints from me that there haven't been any man posts. Keep up the "woman posts". If Jared and/or Nathan want a man post they can have their own blog:) I like your posts, keep them coming:)
