Sheep shearing!

 

Today we trekked over to San Ramon for sheep shearing at a historic farm!

Spinning demos on all sorts of wheels!

The shearing day was a bigger event than I expected, and it was very well run, with plenty of things for kids, too, like old-fashioned games, crafts, animals to pet, tractor rides. We enjoyed it!

Then, since it was so close, we drove up to the summit of Mt. Diablo.  It was a gorgeous day, but my goodness, it was cold up there at 3,848 feet!
