Fast Forward

Ok, I've been avoiding my blog for weeks and weeks now because I didn't want to deal with catching up on everything from Christmas until now. I finally decided that instead of catching up, I will just fast forward. last blog posting was about Owen being a sheep in the Christmas pageant, and here I am 2 months later about to blog about sheep again.

That's right, it's lambing season. February means those oh-so-adorable little lambies bounding around the fields. It also means free entertainment for the kids in Corvallis. OSU's sheep research barn is open to the public daily during lambing season. It's a pretty drive out to the lambing barns, which are on the edge of town. There are many pens containing sheep in all stages. Some are full of super pregnant ewes sitting around panting and waiting to give birth (does that hit a little too close to home, Britt?) And others are full of ewes and lambs. There is one random alpaca in one of the pens.

Anyway, the lambs are darling, and the kids love to go. Quincy keeps saying, "Go back sheep. Go back sheepies!" Luckily, tomorrow is his day at home with Abuela, and she will take him for his 3rd trip.

Here are some pictures from last Sunday's jaunt to see the lambs.
