Weekend Surprises

I hope your weekend was wonderful.
Our's was, for the most part, spent here on the farm.
Friday morning brought an early morning call from the post office.
Our order of chicks arrived and was ready to come home to the farm.

All chicks survived the trip, however, two looked weak and passed on Saturday.
Everyone else is robust and doing great.

Saturday morning we left the farm for an outdoor antique festival about an hour and a half
south of us, with a stop at a lavender festival on the way home.

Isn't this lavender farm amazing??

They have a gift shop that sells everything lavender.
Local vendors had plants, crafts and all sorts of lavender treats for sale.
We enjoyed raspberry-lavender ice cream.

Not only does this farm grow lavender,
but they are a wedding venue and an alpaca farm as well.

How could anyone resist this face...
with her huge eyes and soft lips!
I could have snuck her home in our truck!

They had alpaca-shearing demonstrations during the festival.
This fellow was waiting his turn...

I don't think he cared to much for being stretched out between two tree trunks, however.

The shearing was done quickly, and a beautiful chocolate brown fleece was ready to go to the mill.
For his trouble, a much cooler alpaca was led back to the barn.

The rest of our weekend went something like this...
