There were all sorts of things! We saw goats, puppies, chickens, donkeys, cats, dogs, baby deer and even fox pups among other things! The meet wasn't just for selling animals, there was tons of garage sale like items and even homemade Amish baked goods. We walked around and stopped to see all of the adorable little bunnies, puppies and baby animals. I had to see each and every one.
Right away almost, we found two sweet bunnies that were perfect for the girls. I decided to ask how much they were. The family running the booth was obviously Amish. I waited on the older boy to come back my way, in order to ask him his price. A tiny little girl sat in a lawn chair near the rabbits. Suddenly, she asked us if we were interested in the bunnies. I asked her how much they were and she said "Five dollars each..."
What a deal! "We'll take both!" I said happily. The money was exchanged and Teddy and I were handed two super cute white bunnies with dark ears, paws, and noses. They were Californian rabbits.
Now let me go back to the trip up to the swap meet to explain...
Teddy and I were excitedly on our way when Teddy suddenly realized...
"Hey we need a cage to put those rabbits in!"
"Oops... we can find a box there I'm sure." I said... because I did not want to drive all the way back for a cage.
"Ok, if you're sure..."
Now flash back to us with our new additions to the Rusinack Farm.... With no boxes and no cages, just hands. We carried the little fellers all over the meet with us. They were both happily contented. Teddy's bunny loved him and even started to rub his hand with his little chin. My bunny loved my belly bump and was very happy to rest comfortably on it.
They stayed in our arms the rest of the trip. Not in a box or a cage... They were free happy little guys that really enjoyed the fact that my car had air conditioning. Of course, Teddy and I were thankful for the air conditioning as well, because it was so hot outside! My bunny slept in my lap. Teddy's bunny snuggled next to his arm while he drove.
Now everyone should know that Teddy's favorite animal is a rabbit. So he was not the least bit upset having to hold one all the way home. In fact, I do believe he enjoyed it. :) I asked him if he'd ever thought about getting another bunny later down the road. (Because he recently lost his rabbit Peanut last summer.) He said yes maybe a big Flemish Giant. I smiled. Flemish Giants were huge and very playful like big dogs.
"Ok when we move instead of a dog we will have a house rabbit...a big Flemish Giant."
Teddy smiled at me and laughed, "Sounds good to me! A big guard rabbit..."
So it was settled... Someday in the future we are getting a house rabbit. A big one. ;)
