So for my birthday every year Ben plans a day of fun suprises for me! This year our official day got derailed by a tiny car accident, and I’ve been sitting on these pictures from our first stop until we could reschedule, but we haven’t yet, and it’s been like 2 weeks, so this is what my fabulous husband did for my birthday this year (well the first thing, there are more to come! 3 more suprises to come!)
We went to Shadow Pines Alpaca Farm in Exeter, RI, and met Robert and Vivian, who were SO NICE to us, and answered ALL of our questions. Seriously- Ben asked her soo many questions. Like, by the time we ended our visit we were prepared to become alpaca farmers.
We went into the pens with all the girl alpacas and had a good old time feeding them carrots and petting them! It was so much fun!!
It was terribly fun! And after our visit was over, Vivian and Robert took me into the house, showed me their fleeces and Vivians beautiful weaving, and then sold me some yarn!!!!!
This is the yarn- 80% Alpaca, 20% Bamboo. Beautiful! I can’t wait to knit it into something wonderful and drapey! I got about 1200 yards.
And that’s the Alpaca that my yarn came from!! Her name is Morgan, and she is so completely pregnant in this picture. She’s ready to give birth at any moment! I’m sure she has a 2 week old baby by now!!
