Sunny Meade Alpaca Farm

Rikki Teeters

We have been following Sunny Meade Alpaca Farm on Facebook ever since we saw our first video of Baby Tut flopping around in their field. Sunny Meade is an alpaca farm located in Swanton, Ohio. They post daily wonderful videos of their happy Alpacas on their Facebook page. During our last trip to Northwestern Ohio, we took some extra time to meet these beautiful creatures and their keepers.

We learned the Sunny Meade Alpaca Farm has been in business for 19 years! Owner, Julie, was a graphic designer that fell in love with a baby Alpaca while working on an Alpaca logo. She says the rest was history. Along with her husband, Julie cares of these beautiful animals.

Along with raising and caring for the alpacas, Julie also has her own art studio where she creates beautiful pieces from alpaca fibers. She offers classes to local crafters!

Renaissance Toledo Downtown Hotel

Rikki Teeters

We always love exploring Toledo. From Oak Openings Preserve to Maumee Bay State Park, Toledo has everything that an adventurous soul desires. However, we always find it difficult to find somewhere to stay during our Toledo trips. When we heard about the new Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Toledo, we knew we had to check it out.

The Toledo Renaissance Hotel features a roof top bar, a top rated restaurant, and beautiful city views. We enjoyed relaxing in the hotel after a day full of adventures.

We stayed on the highest residential floor during our visit to the Toledo Renaissance Hotel. Our room allowed us to see stunning views of Toledo, as far as the eye could see.

When we woke up, our views had turned foggy but just as beautiful. We loved seeing Toledo from a new view point.
