Nothing quite says “spring” like spring lambs.  And while our dreams of having a few of our own wooly friends is still very much a dream, we (more than!) satisfied ourselves with a visit to the Drumlin Farm wildlife sanctuary in Lincoln MA.  There really is nothing quite like watching new kids and lambs with your children. 


One of the many things that we love about the Mass Audobon Wildlife Sanctuaries like Drumlin Farm, is there focus on educating children.  There are always so many classes and exhibits and demonstrations for children, it’s wonderful.  We caught a skunk show and the kids were enthralled.  They, like many children, are fascinated by animals and really can’t get enough information and exposure to them.  (except with dinosaurs, in Rebecca’s case!)  The educator, as you can see by the kids eyes, was very engaging!   DSC_0117DSC_0118

Testing their “horse power” with a horse cart.  They are strong!!!


Having a chat with a free range chicken! 


This little gardener couldn’t wait to get her hands in this spring soil.  A large bin of soil and a pile of trowels and hand rakes…now this is a place that truly knows and treasures childhood and the beautiful wonder and discovery it holds. 



Just in case you are local…or even remotely local:

Drumlin Farm Woolapalooza Event is this weekend: Saturday March 31  10-4

Sheep shearing, sheep dog demonstrations, fiber artists, hands-on demonstrations and activities for children and so much more!  We will be there…and maybe we’ll see you too!  I'll be the one with the two kids right up front asking all the questions, and carrying the cutest little 2 month old you’ve ever seen in the Bjorn. 

Happy Spring!
