It was extremely windy yesterdayÂ afternoon and I mentioned to Andrea that I just wanted to play with my camera but I did not have any ideas. Â She replied “okay” before running to change. We spent the next hour outside just experimentingÂ with ideas.
She had funÂ being a model and getting new pictures, and I enjoyed the chance to practice. Â Her white dress caused problems and hair blowing in her eyes made focusing difficult, but it was good training for when I need to get the picture right the first time. It was also fun trying something different. Â The best part was talkingÂ and giggling with my daughter who is growing up so fast!
Megan was not sure what she thought of the alpacas two years ago. But now, she enjoys helping with them. Â She feeds them with help and is learning to walk them.
This is what Megan says about the alpacas:
I like them. Â Sing likes to kiss me when I am walking her. Â She likes me and she walks nicely with me. She does not like her harness because it is too big and she is just little. Â She does not like walking in water.
After I walk her, I give her a treat sometimes. Â Sometimes it is alpaca food. Sometimes I just snuggle with her. Â Sometimes she kisses me when we are done.
When I was little little, I was afraid of alpacas, even the babies! I really don’t mind them now, they don’t scare me anymore. My favorite is all of them!
After all the rain we received, we have puddles all around the yard. Adrian and Megan enjoyed playing with boats before Adrian startedÂ stomping in the puddles. He slid accidentally and then decided that jumping in the puddles was a lot more fun than splashing!
Megan does not always like to go sledding. Â She dislikes snow in her face and she does not like to be out of control. Â Occasionally, she enjoysÂ going downhill fast! Her favorite sled ride is a calm, slow, giggly one.
Yesterday the kids asked me to come to work with them. The neighbors have an extremely friendly barn cat named Paul. Mark says the cat acts like a dog! Adrian and Paul enjoyed playing together by the heat lamp for a little while before I went out to watch how the kids walk the alpacas.
