"Ohhhh," the children cooed together as the learning guide led them to the sheep's pen. They barely listened as she told them about the sheep, then a dozen pairs of eager hands reached towards the animal to touch it.

"Mom, she's soft," Kaylee called to her mother. Touch her ears Anna.

Annabella looked uncertainly into the sheep's dark eyes, then reached out and gently rubbed her ear. It's all fuzzy!

"Be gentle Kaylee," Maira said. The girls looked at each other and laughed. Maira shook her head and turned to Soraya.

"So what are your plans tonight, Raya?" she asked.

"Nothing much, Anna has a playdate with the Tesset twins so I was planning on getting an hour or two in at the phaser range. My Tactical Phaser recertification is coming up and I honestly haven't picked up a rifle since my last recert!" Soraya said with a smile.

"That's not a bad idea, I need to get some time on the range too, but tonight James and I are going to the Cantina to hear the band," Maira said. "Are you joining us for lunch after the petting zoo?"

"Actually we had an early lunch just before we came here, at the Café. It was...unexpectedly nice," she said with a smile. Maira narrowed her eyes at her friend for a moment, then gave her a nudge with her elbow. The doctor laughed, "We had lunch with the new Federation Marshal, Wolfric. Anna took to him right away, practically invited herself to his table. He was very pleasant company," she added.

"I'll just bet he was," Maira said with a wink. Soraya rolled her eyes and the women laughed as they followed the children through the petting zoo.
