Taking the air

The triplets got to come outside today and take a little fresh air. (Doesn't mom look a little beleaguered?) So timid in the beginning, it didn't take them long to start jumping and running around (always keeping mom close by). The two girls seem to be the most daring, while the other played the mama's boy today.

They all seemed fascinated by the little strip of shade made by a tree trunk. One by one, they tried to place themselves just so to take advantage of it. This little girl got it just right the first time, but then only managed to get her head in the right place the next time she visited the tree.

All this fresh air will make for three tired little lambs. I'm betting they will all sleep soundly tonight!

  1. Oh, what a beautiful way to start the day! The lambs are so gorgeous and your description just fills it all in so well. I wonder why we have such a affinity to lambs - could it be a something we carry with us from our days of "Mary Had a Little Lamb"? Who knows, but they really are cute!
