Sheep to Shawl | Savannah Photographer

This past Saturday the Andersons headed to the Oatland Island Wildlife Center for their Sheep to Shawl event! Annika and I learned all about sheep at the most recent Toddler Tuesday, but we wanted to check out the entire experience, and we wanted Daddy to join us! I was so impressed with the event, and we were lucky with a gorgeous day!

Shearing the Sheep! There was a bunch of people there to hold the sheep down, but really, he just laid back and enjoyed the attention.

Annika was amazed by this woman spinning her wool

Annika made some marble art by blowing bubbles in paint…she was a pro!
