We went to a local historical site today for their annual sheep and wool festival. I don't live too far from one of the biggest sheep and wool festivals (in Rhinebeck) and that one can be SOOOO hectic and crowded. This was such a lovely change from the craziness of Rhinebeck. It was small, but so enjoyable and much easier to bring the kids to. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and we had such nice weather! I bought one skein fo sock yarn, but i could have bought SOOO much more!
I thought I'd share some pics
Some pictures of the festival. The house in the background is Clermont Manor, home of the historic Livingston Family. Robert Livingston was one of the signers of the declaration of independance, and the negotiator of the Louisiana Purchase.
The kids painted some ceramics for fun. They were very proud of them! Dont mind the wind blown hair in Lillian's face
