Happy Earth Day!!
Lil’S woke up first thing this morning and scanned the yard for litter. She somehow got it into her head that that was what we were supposed to do for Earth Day – pick up garbage. It is not that that is a bad way to honour the earth, but I was imagining something more along the lines of THIS fine idea by the folks at Imagine Childhood.
There truly wasn’t much garbage to pick up so that activity was short-lived. Next J and the girls then met up with some friends and walked down to Queen’s University to check out some flying squirrels as part of their earth day celebrations. Lil’S tells me it looked like this:
And we went for a walk (how happy does a baby carrying, dog-walking kid make this mama?):
Lil’S stopped to practice drawing the flowers she saw:
Which she then used to make this (gotta love the studious approach to creating):
All in all a pretty nice day. We are quite enjoying the activities that abound here in Kingston on days like these. Speaking of, I didn’t have time to blog about the Earth Hour Celebrations put on by Kingston Unplugged a little while ago but I did want to share with you how wonderful it was…and suggest you definitely attend next year. It was magnificent!
