Sunny Weather Ramblings: Sheep Shearing Festival

We’ve been all over the place since the weather started to get bright and sunny back in May.  Over the next couple of posts, I’ll let you in on all the fun happenings.The sheep are all waiting for their turnWe made it out to the Sheep Shearing Festival at the Agriculture and Food Museum here in Ottawa back in May.  Finally.  I’ve been meaning to take the kidlets every year for the past 3 years or so.  Shameful, I know.  I always seem to make big plans and have so much trouble with the follow-through…  *sigh*After the big hair cut

It was a lot of fun though.Loom weaving

Besides the big hair cuts for the sheep, we also got to take in some sheep dog demonstrations, try our hand at using a loom to weave the wool, and take our first peek at the new exhibit “A Piece of Cake!” that takes you from farm to table.  And we got to do it all with my sister and her gang of boys!  Lots of fun!Weaving
