We were so excited that it was finally shearing day! We headed out to Pierpont, Ohio to visit Roving Acres Farm. Here you see the sign made by my Dad-in-love. Unfortunately he was not with us today, but we wanted to be sure to appreciate the sign.
We spent some time admiring the sheep out in the glorious sunshine.
I spent some time admiring my sweetie.
Wolf dreams of running with them.
I donned the kerchief I knitted from some Roving Acres yarn.
A wee babe in arms.
I must give props to this gal. She gave birth to this doll this morning and she is entertaining company the same day. I can relate to this!
Time to shear Dennis. He is super cooperative. What a guy!
Showing his spots off.
Look at that fleece!
You just know that my honey got a little treat for me. Feast your eyes...
Click here to see video of sweet music and Wolfie playing tambourine.
On our way home, we stopped by a new park in Perry, on the shores of Lake Erie, Lake Erie Bluffs. We shared a picnic, but it was very cold at this point. We braved the chilly temps and visited the beach. We were rewarded with an Eagle sighting!
Such a wonderful day! Special thanks to Beth and Sarah Karr for their hospitality and to Mud in yer eye for the beautiful music! Check out Roving Acres store for gorgeous wool!

April showers brings bubble umbrellas and galoshes and slickers...
Full rain barrels
Forsythia blooms ("do you like butter? " with a bloom held under your chin. If the yellow reflects onto your chin, you like butter. Ahem, we all like butter!)
Strawberry plants resurrect themselves
Every spring, Matt brings me home hyacinths. When they wither, I plant them. I have hyacinths springing up all over our yard, reminding me just how sweet he is.
Wolfie’s tree is getting pretty.
A little primrose that my brother, Ian, bought me many years ago. It always cheers me up to see its bright blooms so early in the Springtime.
Chose to play outside instead of doing the dishes. One meal generates this much washing? So unfair!
Seeds are sprouting! These seeds were such wonderful Christmas presents. Thank you guys!
Potty training= hello kitty undies!
A trip to the zoo with a mandatory break dance in the primate building. Not sure why that flooring is there, but it demands to be danced on. No matter how crowded it is.
Cavalcade of home cooked pizza.
First is white pizza.
Blueberry pie pizza, presented by Ron Weasley.
Chillin' at Malley's, eating a puppy luv in Alice's wonderland garden
They always give you pretzels while you wait, in a bowl your grandma would have used at a card party.
Fruit slice smile for Vlad and special recipe hot fudge euphoria for Wolf.
We lost a family member, hoppy ball.
R. I. P. Old friend, you served us well.
Not dealing well with the loss. Still sitting on it.
No longer "hoppy".
p. S. Thanks for the replacement Gma Kathy!
Daddy's birthday trip to the lake.
A birthday pie whipped up for my boyfriend.
Ollie likes to bring Pop his new birthday robots.
A new guy, Titan, joins the family.
Birthday skipbo bores Hermes.
Aren't new teeth weird?

The reason for the aftermath
Visiting on stage with uncle Adam. Ninja skillz.
Knitted a kerchief from some gorgeous yarn from Roving Acres. Thanks for the yarn, Mama Jo!
