A Day in the Life. . .of a guinea pig

Olivia does not yet know of the little furry creatures that live in our basement. I currently have 4 girls and 2 boys who are all around 5 years old. Of course, I couldn't confine them to cages all day, so when we bought our house, we moved them to pens where they could roam about as they please. I think they're pretty happy despite the fact that I don't get to spend a lot of time with them anymore. It's been a challenge to make sure their pens are kept clean, their nails are trimmed (all 84 of them) and remember to give them their veggies twice a day. I have Olivia to love and nurture and think of first and foremost. ..but, my guinea pigs and rats will always be dear to my heart.

I've been wondering when we were going to meet the famous guinea pigs. It seems like they have a nice little home! I can't wait until Livi gets to meet them, that'll be something I'll be longing to watch on video!
Hope the wind didn't blow anyone away! It was unbearable outside. But Maize can start the soccer season with a win!

Have you ever had baby guinea pigs? They are so, so little.
