Angora, Family, Maryland Sheep and Wool

Maryland Sheep and Wool 2013

My Mom and I go to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival together. We’ve done it three years in a row so it is now our special tradition and we look forward to it every year! And this is the second year in a row that my sister in law, Annelies has joined us! So it’s her tradition with us too!

I’m not such a great photographer, but I’m working on it, and I’ll share a few photos with you:

The weather was beautiful; sunny and breezy, not too hot or too cool!

I fell absolutely in love with the English Angora Rabbits! Joe (my husband)Β does not realize how lucky he is to have a wife who realizes the importance of not stressing out one’s husband by bringing home unexpected new pets on the fly! One day, however,Β I am determined to have at least one (preferably two) English Angora Rabbits! I am willing to wait a very long time, be very patient, and endure many compromises in order to accomplish this goal! πŸ˜‰

You can actually hold the Angora bunny on your lap, gently pluck the fiber from its back, and spin it right there! Amazing!

After a long and fun day at the S&W, we relaxed back at Mom and Dad’s while Mom modled some of my latest knits and Joel (my brother) entertained everyone by making silly faces in the background! What a wonderful weekend with family!

What fun times with family would you like to share?
