Forget-Me-Not Alpacas

We went on a little outing today to Forget-Me-Not Alpacas near Beaverton. Beautiful animals. Sweet tempered, huge eyes!

The farm is a beautiful set up for their herd. I had a great talk with the owners on building the farm, the herd and Alpaca husbandry.

There went my goal of not adding to the yarn stash! I learned so much about raising alpacas there just might be a second career!

#happydays Icebreaker Adventure Run

The Sisters competed in Don’t Get Lost’s Icebreaker Adventure Run down at Chedoke Golf Club in Hamilton this weekend. This event is the end of year event for the ARK group (Adventure Running Kids) as well as a warm up for the Snowshoe Raid in January. The turnout was great, lots of kids and adults participating. We both say we wish we would have known about this sport when our kids were young, we would have been out there with them.

We are ready to go!

We are ready to go!

Chedoke Golf club is a rolling little place at the base of the escarpment, so there were actually two levels to this event. We chose not to climb the escarpment and just find the controls along the base of the escarpment and around the golf course. That didn’t mean we didn’t get some great bushwhacking in or climbing, but we did get some nice running in across the golf course. With a few slips and falls we still managed to collect 430 pts that put us finishing right in the middle of our division.

#100happydays Day 43 Cross Training with Tennis Doubles

#100happydays Day 43 Cross Training Tennis Doubles

6:30 in the morning on a Friday before the “long” Canada Day weekend. There could be no better day to call our husbands out of bed to cross-train with us on the tennis court!

Of course none of us know how to play tennis other than that you use a racket to hit a yellow ball over the net somewhere in the vicinity of your opponent. We have a dozen tennis balls and about half of them bounce, we also only have tree tennis rackets, but we do have one squash racket that seemed to do the trick.

All of us have either sore shoulder or knees. I’m sure we were quite a sight, hobbling around the court and grimacing in pain after the occasional wrenching swing. It’s a good thing that most of the neighbors around the court were still asleep. All except the tennis instructor who showed up with a student. Our balls were flying everywhere but he polity hit them back to us and let us know that his balls had green dots on them so they couldn’t be confused with ours (despite that ours didn’t bounce). Somehow they managed to keep their 50 or so balls with the green dots in their court, ours just had minds of their own and traveled everywhere.

After swing and missing, chasing balls for an hour and laughing a lot, it was back to the house for coffee and ice packs. Thanks guys, for coming out to play.
