Llamas and alpacas. Beavers and otters. Frogs and alligators. With the grandkids in tow, we managed to see them all and more. Hampton has a city park that is a petting zoo, called Bluebird Gap Farm, which we enjoyed one Sunday afternoon. The following weekend, we took the kids to the Virginia Living Museum, where we visited most of the habitats Virginia has to offer, along with the animals that occupy them.
The biggest project on the list for our son-in-law was constructing a 40 x 12 ft kennel. It took several days in some witheringly hot weather, but by the time we left the structure was ready for use. There were several other projects that consumed the rest of the week, but most of the list was done before we left, with the whole family pitching in.
