Shearing Day

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 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!

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!
