But the kiddos were out of town so it was just the two of us this time. It’s amazing what you get to see when you’re not worried about small people poking where they shouldn’t and the resulting well-deserved kick.
I actually got to take a lot of really good photos.
This little alpaca was so cute. But very shy. I tried to get photos without scaring him. It’s also difficult to get a good pic of an animal that’s black with dark eyes. This was the best I got until….
This toddler boy and toddler alpaca were both equally curious about the other.
Best photo of my day. And week. hmmmmmm…..maybe best so far this year!
I wrote on Friday about the horrific attack on the alpacas by dogs a few weeks ago. There’s now a security system installed which should alert them before something that awful happens again.
The alpacas were the main event, but there were also refreshments, a few vendors, a shop selling alpaca-related items, music, demos, and plants for sale. (I bought lots of plants!)
I loved meandering through all the garden “rooms” and taking home some ideas.
And there were Chickens! (nope, not taking home any chickens)
Alpaca Magic USA is a fun place to visit. And do take your children or grandchildren or borrow some from a friend. They’ll love it.
Open 7 days a week from 10 – 2.
