The Alpacas Go To Church

I know....it sounds like a title of a children's book, but that's just what our alpacas did today....they attended the Sunday Service at Fountain St. Church downtown Grand Rapids. We were invited to have a booth at their annual Reverence for Life Service and Animal Advocacy Expo. The alpacas were a big hit; everyone loved them. They had over 500 people (and their pets..including dogs, cats, ferrets, rats, and Guinea pigs) attend the service and come through the Expo. We got asked all kinds of questions about the alpacas and even made a few contacts with people interested in getting their own alpacas. The kids had a blast petting the alpacas and we sold a few alpaca items like scarves, hats, and socks. We were already asked by church members and the minister to come back next year! Here are some pictures of the alpacas going to church.

I tried to snap some pictures of the Expo during the actual church service when things died down a little. I think the alpacas were a little overwhelmed after the service when everyone came to see them.
My mom, Tom and Livy stopped by the Expo. My mom is showing off her new alpaca gloves! The event was a lot of fun and we hope to participate again next year with a new crop of cria!
