and on that farm he had a guanaco

We visited the farm last week (since I was lucky enough to win a free family pass). Danny loved the baby chicks. He couldn't get enough of them. He also liked seeing the baby ducks and the "oinks."

I loved that it was cloudy and windy and started to rain on a summer evening. That's my favorite time to go to the farm.

Neither kid wanted to take a free pony ride though. I don't know what's up with that. Bunch of fraidy cats I guess.

Cate liked most of the animals too. She just looks super grouchy in this picture. She really did have fun running around seeing the animals and pretending to talk to them in their various languages. Cock-a-doodle-dooing at the roosters and oinking at the pigs. It was very cute.

Dan met up with a guanaco. It's not his first time. He used to work at this very farm many years ago. He was trying to help wrangle a wild guanaco that had gotten lose. He didn't fare very well in the end.

A few things I like about this picture (taken in the summer of 1999):

Dan was still in his 20's.
He had a wicked farmer's tan.
I'm glad I have a picture of the wood paneling that used to be in our bedroom.
My husband looks amazing, even after a harrowing near-death experience.

the end.

That picture of Dan was too violent for me. I had nightmares after seeing it on my phone. Bring back the vomit and poop! ;)
