I am loving my time spent at the Mother Earth News Fair in Puyallup, Washington thus far. There are tons of great and interesting people to meet, delicious food, fun and information-packed lectures and demonstrations, and, best of all, adorable animals!

Cue the oohs and ahhs.

There are countless alpacas showing off their soft fleece coats.

The sheep seem to have been enjoying all the attention.

 6 4 2011 hog 

The hogs have been lazing about under the Animal Husbandry tent. 

 6 4 2011 goat  

The goats are smiling to all the interested fair goers.

And last, but not least, there are tons of baby chicks making quite the ruckus over in the Bon Ami booth.

Stop by the fair to check out all the animals up close.
