A local farm and education centre hosted a Spring Thaw celebration this weekend, and we all enjoyed the fun (and the beautiful weather!) There were lots of animals (inlcuding 1 day old lambs), a maze, gourd bird feeders to make and take home, and grinding grain to make the bird food. William in particular loved grinding the grain - oats, millet, and wheat. He stayed at it until he had ground a whole cup of flour - at least a half hour, and likely more. It was a lot of work for little arms, but he was so proud. We even came away with a cook book and Canadian 2010 almanac as door prizes.
