National Alpaca Farm Day!!

I had such an action packed weekend,
filled with all the things I love to do most.

Did you know, 
Sunday was National Alpaca Farm Day...

and here at "The Coop", they sure know how to celebrate.

 Here's The Coop at Arrow Acres Farm...
it's so welcoming...it really invites one to sit down and stay a spell.

Every detail was attended to.

 There was lots of Alpaca fiber on display...

 and beautiful handmade items on display...

 and for purchase.

Wandering around the farm,

 transforms you back to a simpler day and time.

Can you see why I love it here?
It's fall at the farm...

the family set up a huge tent for folks to sit and rest.
Here you can enjoy a hot dog,
homemade cookies or a cold glass of sweet apple cider.
Here, you have a wonderful view of the Alpaca.

Many thanks to Don, Dee, Leanne, Liz and Andee
for making my visit so special.

Tomorrow I'll share pictures of the Alpaca,
and the baby, born only 2 days before!

  8. Debbie, National Alpaca Day looks like fun. For me it is something new.
    In my country, alpacas live only in the Zoo.
    Oh, how I love your great photos.

  12. I wonder if there is a National Cat Day?
    My girlfriend used to spin my long haired cat's fur into the most beautiful yarn. Unfortunately, even though I could bury my face in his fluffy fur with no problem, his spun fur still made me itch!
