And so it happened. My first ever DRIVE to see my friend, danni. You see, since I moved to Washington state, I can now drive to see her instead of having to fly....and I have to say....this is one of the best things ever. I should have moved closer to her a LONG time ago. Im just sayin.
Upon my arrival, I think the llama ladies were a little concerned that I may upset the daily routine. See how they looked at me?
They were pretty quickly won over with some carrot coins.
But you have to be quick in this crowd. Amazingly, Kai was the one to nab this particular carrot coin.
And she had no problem leaving Dolly looking like this after she walked off with that carrot in her mouth.
I, of course, had to spend some time with the critter farm donkeys.
This was my first time meeting Beau. Hes such a sweet boy. And those ears of his just make my heart go pitter pat.
The goats had a good brushing.
And Kai was very, very curious about that pile of fuzzy goat hair. But if you look closely, you can see that she kept an eye on danni that whole time she was sniffing that pile of fuzzy hair. Just to make sure that she didnt get any ideas about using that brush on her lovely llama hair.
Luckily, I was there just in time. Because we got to clean out the goat house.
And even luckier yet, I got to feed the llamas. Which meant that I got to hold the bucket while Dolly enjoyed her tasty hay treats.
She even shared with Kai....for a minute anyway.
And then she wanted it all to herself again. Shes searching very intensely for those tasty treats...at one point I was wondering if she was gonna stick her whole head in there.
After a couple days tho, it was time for me to head back home. To Washington. In my car. (I just love that) And for my second first time ever....look what I got to bring home with me.
Yep. Thats right. My very own dozen of critter farm eggs....no 12 hours of airplanes and airports to stop me from enjoying those eggs this time.
A specialty Dottie egg, too, of course. Seeing critter farm eggs in my fridge made me smile all day today.
And never to be forgotten by the cool miss danni....the kids (and S and I) were sent home some very yummy cupcakes.
I have a feeling that Im gonna be doing this way more often now.
