Harvest Fest at The Memphis Zoo!



Harvest Fest at The Memphis Zoo

The temperatures may not be dropping around here, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t Fall! That just means we’re in the South. 🙂 I would prefer a bit cooler weather, but I’m also happy that swimming weather hasn’t completely left us yet. Either way, Fall officially arrives this Friday, September 22! If you’re looking for something fun to do with the family to welcome the new season, this weekend would be a great time to head on over to the Memphis Zoo for Harvest Fest, a family-friendly event presented by T-Mobile!

The two-day event will include lots of fun for all ages. You’ll be able to learn from local craftsmen, hear live bands, and even participate in hands-on activities such as churning butter and stamping your own leather.

This event is included with zoo admission.

Why yes, there is a goat in my kitchen!

Yep, that’s a goat standing in my kitchen. He’s a Pygmy goat to be exact. Friday afternoon we brought home the newest member of our zoo. Lincoln has been wanting a horse as long as he’s been alive, but for his second birthday we decided to start small. He has done surprisingly well with remembering to feed the dogs and reminding me to let them in or out, so we thought a goat would be a good addition to his entourage. So far, his name is “Goat.” Hopefully that will change this week.

Don’t worry, he lives outside. Lincoln’s daddy (my awesome hubby) just happens to be pretty handy with a hammer, and he built a spiffy goat house for our new friend. The next picture is Lincoln and his friend playing in the goat house before Daddy got the roof finished.
