Did You See Our Cousins New Alpaca Pictures?



My sister and her husband, who are the owners of Rock Garden Alpacas, had been planning on participating in their first National Alpaca Farm Days Weekend Event for a year and that weekend was finally here.

My sister had also decided that this would also be the official opening of their Rock Garden Alpacas Farm Store. This meant products had to be made and the store had to be set up. Needless to say even with a year to plan all this the closer it got to the day the more harried everyone became.

The event was meant to showcase alpaca farms, teach the public about the alpacas and to, hopefully, sell some products. So, of course, with a two-day event the weather was important. Luckily for us the weather forecast for that weekend was beautiful sunny days.

What could be better than spending a beautiful Fall day at the farm, sitting on the hill and taking in my sister's incredible view, learning about the animals and their fiber, and doing a little shopping. Sounds like a perfect day to me.

So, of course, I went to help.  Truth be told I just love the alpacas and taking pictures of them.  And, I knew the "dollies" would love seeing new pictures of their alpaca cousins.  Here's some of the pictures I took:


The girls were getting ready.


Petunia was in her hay pile.


Roxy and Zinnia were getting ready.  There would be visitors today so they needed to look their best.


This meant a little rolling in the dust to make themselves beautiful for their guests.

You're All Invited To The Dollie's Spooky Halloween Party


There's been a lot of chatter coming from The Dollie Storage Room lately.

Dolls have been coming and going at all times of the day and night. 

There's been a lot of banging and moving of furniture. And, of course there's been a lot of laughter and gaiety for days on end now.

We weren't concerned until we heard the screaming. That we weren't too sure of, but the dollies assured us that everything was fine.

We're pretty sure what's going on.

It's October and that means the "dollies" favorite holiday will be here soon - HALLOWEEN.

And, for the dollies that means "PARTY TIME!"

They do love to party. And, at Halloween party they do.

That is - until the house starts shaking.

Then, hubby, puts his foot down. Or lets say he tries to put his foot down. When the "dollies" get going they don't listen to anyone. Well, maybe someone - ME!!!!

When they get out of hand and get a little too exuberant I have to gently remind them that I may be old, but since I put them together I can still take them apart. For them that's tantamount to a death sentence. So, they pay attention and calm down just a bit. At least the house stops shaking.

So, get ready.  It's IT'S SPOOKY TIME

You're All invited! So, come on - let's party!
