Kira left for her personal vacation yesterday, much to everyone's dismay (except hers). Hakan seems to keep forgetting that she's gone; he keeps saying things like, "When Mommy wakes up..." I have to remind him that she is in another state for just a few days, but that she'll be back.
After a bit of a drive, we made it to a little farm, which is mostly a horse ranch. We got to feed and pet the goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys, llamas, ducks, and ponies, and we admired from a little distance the enormous pigs, who are not nearly as charming as Charlotte's Web would have us believe.

It was a nice outing, so hopefully I can keep up with their expectations for the rest of the time Kira's gone. Wish me luck!
