So often it’s the simple things in life that make me smile and give me that “aaahhh” feeling, and that’s certainly how I felt on Friday when a friend and I visited the children’s farm at a local park.

We were greeted by this peacock, who had stationed himself above the entrance and seemed to be keeping a close eye on the comings and goings.

The two resident alpacas had recently been shorn. This is Thor, who’s doing his best to look dignified, and failing miserably. I really wanted to give him a hug and tell him not to worry, it’ll grow back!

The highlight of the visit and the real reason for going to the farm in the first place was the newest member of farm’s family—a two-day-old donkey. This is a picture of baby Elliott getting a snuggle from one of the farm workers while his over-protective mama wasn’t looking.

And then there’s Sweetie, the Vietnamese potbellied pig. Sweetie is the farm’s self-appointed poster girl. Her slogan: life is good.

Sweetie, you got that right!

Here’s to a putting a little fun in your Sunday 🙂
