Fun with some four legged friends!

During a camping trip with extended family this summer, Anna fell in love. The object of her affection was not a little boy, but rather . . . a goat! "Snickerdoodle" was his name and every night after we returned back home she told me how much she missed him. Several weeks later we were camping at the same spot and were able to visit him again. During that camping trip, Emily fell in love . . . with several of Snickerdoodle's friends! (her favorite is named Gypsy).

It was then that we officially became involved with a wonderful goat rescue program in Larkspur. There are 24 goats on site (and I'm still amazed at how quickly Emily learned nearly every single one of their names and was immediately able to tell them apart!) Fortunately, our new friends live about 10 miles from our house and we've been able to visit them periodically. Our desire is to help out with the goats as a family in various ways (as needed). You can learn more about them at Jellystone of Larkspur's website (www.castlerockrvpark.com)
