Not something you see every day...

We're driving over to American Fork to meet Paul for dinner at In-N-Out and Emma says "I think I just saw a sheep give birth." My response? "um, I really doubt it." She then says "well I saw a red bubble hanging out of it's butt." My response? "That's worth going back for!" I whip the car around and sure enough there is momma licking a new baby clean.  
We watched her for a minute will all the appropriate oohs and ahs and then decide we better get going so we don't make Paul wait too long. As we are getting in the car she turns and we see her start to have a contraction. 

***Warning*** The picture below could be considered graphic by some. 

So she contracts for just a minute and out pops #3. We *SAW* it fall out and we saw all the stuff gush out. The kids, oh gosh how I wish I had this recorded, were like awww, then oh yuck, then EWWW!!!  Seriously it was the funniest thing. I'm laughing right now thinking about it. The looks on their faces when all the afterbirth stuff came gushing out was priceless. 
There's nothing like eating a cheeseburger after watching a birth. 

Now that's a big mess of nasty spongy fries! 
We all got the cheeseburger combo but each burger was different. 
On the way home we had to drive by the lambs/sheep. (seriously, what are these things?) Two of the babies were up and #3 was just starting to stand. 
They were so cute!
