And, not to be outdone by a pumpkin, this Turkish Turban, posing alongside me, is a Guiness Book of World Records squash, weighing in at 86 pounds. Man oh man. That's some crazy squash.
After admiring the squash for a bit, we mosied on over to the Llama and Alpaca Education Centre to find out a little more about 2 of the funniest mammals around. I entered a contest draw where the person who guessed closest to the right weight of wool produced by an Alpaca in a given year will win some alpaca wool - fingers crossed.
So that is that, another successful trip to the land of rural bliss. For 2 suburban kids who have never had a pet larger than a Guinea Pig, it is pretty darn exciting. And funny.
