Sheep and Wool Festival


Last weekend we went to the Dutchess County Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY.  A dangerous place for me to go - oh the textures and colors and well, all that livestock and wool.  I managed to leave with just a bit of roving to play with, but I am in love with all those Angora goats above.  Hmm... as I said, a dangerous place for me to go.






Despite all the animals, and the hay maze, and the ice cream, and the herding dogs, and the displays of lovely wool and treasures, the kids favorite part was simply the leaves.  Lots of leave + good friends = bushels of fun.
