Back to Whidbey we go…

IMG_6375

Wes has been home, but left for 5 days to sing in Wisconsin.  I am solo again, but it’s nothin’ compared to 5.5 months!

This morning, we were not getting off to a good start.  Emmett destroyed the living room and Silas was emptying the fridge. I had zero patience and decided we needed to get out of the house. So… we headed back out to Whidbey and it was such a good thing!!

This time I stopped at a visitor center and the women there sent me off the visit a family farm called Sonshine Farm. We pulled up and it looked like a private home and I felt a little intrusive at first. But, we called ahead and I knew someone was there.  We were greeted by a young gal who took us around back to meet their goats and alpacas!

They had baby goats and… oh my golly…. they were so incredibly cute. And soft. And cuddly. Nothing compares to a baby goat.

Now…  for something so lucky and amazing!!!  Had we come 10 minutes earlier or later we may have missed this.  As she was taking us around to see the male goats… she noticed a female in labor.  I looked at her and said ” Really?!  You mean we might see babies born?!”  We followed her into the pasture and got to watch the birth of two beautiful little goats!  It all happened in about 15 minutes and it was AWESOME!

Yup… pretty awesome!

How could you top that, right?!  Well, we went to Double Bluff Beach and the tide was out.  The kids did not want to leave.  Millie was happy there too!
