There was a wool festival at the Prospect Park Zoo, so after breakfast we headed over. The peacocks were showing their stuff:
Penny got to make felted balls and spool knit:
Milo found a petal that was shaped like a butterfly:
Penny carded some wool, and I showed the volunteer how a drop spindle works:
Then there was a sheep shearing demonstration. Apparently a sheep lost a horn, and according to Penny, there was blood EVERYWHERE, though Alex days it wasn't that bad.
We got home, drank a gallon of water apiece, then headed downstairs to our awesome neighbor's 5th birthday party! It was Star Wars themed, and a great time was had by all.
Both kids were asleep by 7:15, and I am not far behind! Big, big day!
