It's raining, it's pouring!

Wow! We sure did experience a lot of rain today! It began in the middle of the night and continued for most of the day. That didn't dampen the spirits of Del and her daughter, Carissa. They had been planning a trip to our place for awhile. So, we made out way out into the rain to check on the animals.

Tysin, our LGD was thrilled to meet our visitors. He loves a good scratch on his chin.

We then made our way over to the chicken coop to check out all of the chickens. They had already laid seven eggs by 10:30 am. Carissa was thrilled to get the opportunity to collect them for us! We then proceeded over to the alpaca area, where our guests fed the alpacas a little brunch snack. They were still a little full from breakfast, but were happy to take a nibble or two from the offerings.

The chicks were a big hit. These chicks are living in our backyard until they are big enough to fend themselves from the snakes that appear in the barn every now and then. We've learned our lesson from taking them out too early. The snakes just love the chicks!

It just wouldn't be the same without a kiss goodbye. Lucy decided to give Carissa a little kiss. You could almost imagine her saying, "Thanks for the snack!".

What did you do on this rainy day?
