JP and I are trying to ensure that we have more “date nights” so that we can continue to have new, fun experiences together and not let the monotony of day-to-day work life take over our time together. It’s so important to inject fun into a marriage and we are always on the lookout for new things to do (other than, you know, laundry, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and renovations). Reading the title of this post, you may think I’m crazy to plan a date visiting pigs, but check out the pictures before you make your final decision about my sanity!
Setting the Scene
I surprised JP with this date, so I told him how to dress and typed the address into our GPS. He had no idea where we were going and his guesses were hilarious. When we arrived at the pig sanctuary, JP’s initial reaction was, “where are we? I see pigs everywhere.”
The day was a win because by the time we left, JP’s verdict was, “that was really cool.” To say we are animal lovers would be an understatement, so we were happy to donate money to the farm as our admission. The funds go towards countering the dark side of the pet pig market (really!).
Of course, visiting with the animals was the highlight. I can tell you that pigs are not soft to pet, but they are very friendly and like belly rubs (like B!). The exceptions were the baby pigs that we got to hold and cuddle, who were very soft and adorable (I can’t say that the large pigs were adorable).
Overall, it was a unique experience that I’m glad we got to share together! I have several more posts to follow this one about our other recent adventures, so stay tuned!
