Fun Fun Fun!
When the Deans and the Morgans came for a visit we went to Sweet Maple Alpaca Farm. We found out that llamas and alpacas are not the same animal and we decided we liked the alpaca much better than llamas. They were not pushy and they really were quite sweet.
We went in the sugaring shack to watch the sap get boiled down and made into syrup. We all had little cups of hot syrup and agreed it was delicious!
The farm was fun but sharing it with our friends from back home made it even better!

Really, it was fun. But then again, we didn't do the driving, Afarine and Babs did. We were lucky enough for them to give up 4 days of their lives to drive out to visit us with their kids. We had a great time together despite the rainy cold weather. We spent time hiking in the woods with the kids, knitting, doing crafts, chatting, and just laughing. It was what we Zinks needed! Babs brought the stuff to color eggs and the kids had fun coloring them while John and Sam have had fun EATING them. Here is just a snippet of what was going on.....
