With our last day with JJ to be blogged, I kind of lost track of posting Fathers Day pictures.
After breakfast, we all went to the Lambs Down festival, which took place by the Wool Growers Co-op. Lambs Down is kind of a take-off on the Ottawa football stadium, which is called Landsdowne Park. At least, I presume that's the clever connection that someone intended.
There were pony rides and sheep shearing, which I will save for Sue to post about. While the ladies wandered about, the boys took a gander inside the Wool Growers Co-op. This is what part of it looks like, and that's JJ and Eric wandering back toward the exit.
If you think you see tracks in the photo, you are correct. At one point this building was a railway centre, but it converted a long time ago, and is now the wool grading station for Canada.
After our little tour, the sheep shearing demo took place, and I will relent and post one photo although I don't want to steal Sue's thunder too much.
Later there was a sheep roundup demonstration. Those border collies are so smart. It actually herded them into a little transport van and then back out again.
And especially for the kids: face painting. We lined up a long time, and it was pricey: well done but costly.
Grandma didn't have her face painted, but she looked lovely as always. I need to include her because she had some small role to play in me becoming a father.
