This is not a drill!

We had a bear in our backyard last evening... yes, a bear!

At least, I think we did. OK, I did not actually see the bear, but I was told there was a bear by the 4 year old who woke me out of a sound sleep (yes, my kids get to stay up later than I do) and I was made to run all over the house, peeking out of windows looking for "a bear".

My wife did confirm there was a baby bear in the backyard, but I did get jipped considering I did not actually see it. Pretty sure waking up suddenly like that takes a few years off your life.

Told the little boy, for future reference, I only wake up for bears IN THE HOUSE! And even then, only the big ones!
