Cambridge Food and Garden Show

We went to Cambridge Food and Garden Show on Sunday, and apart from lovely cider, tasty ales, yummy frozen yoghurt and scrumptious sausages there were also some really cute animals. Below is a video of a couple of twin goats that were very busy eating flowers and cabbage with their mum, but occasionally also found time for a bit of fighting.

We also got to hold some tiny rabbits 🙂 They were only three weeks old and we couldn’t help considering sneaking one into my hood and walking off. Below are pictures of the rabbits, and some of the other animals at the show.

Some surprised looking penguins

Kenneth – the newest member of our family

Here is Kenneth, the newest member of our family:

Kenneth – In his new home

We found him at John Lewis and knew straight away he belonged in our kitchen. He’s also settled in very quickly and here he is doing some programming:

He’s very sociable and of course it didn’t take long for him to become very good friends with Henry. Here they are when they were first introduced:
