Yep, that’s Little A. reaching his arms out and giving the Earth a great big hug Well, not quite, but he was having a lot of fun being outdoors, watching mama and dadda pick up trash (how come we get to pick up trash?) – and spend lots of time swinging in his favorite swing! He’s a bit young to let loose to collect litter, considering he still puts just about everything in his mouth.
Yesterday, we set out as a family and did our bit on Earth Day. We like to try to do our bit everyday, by remembering to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Just three simple things that make a difference.
It was a cool day in Ottawa, so we all wore our hoodies – like trash bandits…hehehe. We met a few other
people in the community who were doing the same thing and it was great to meet neighbors who were out and about.
For dinner we had a very green meal, literally.We tried fiddle heads for the first time (they were a gift from our friends’ garden) – we can’t say that it was love at first bite, but we’ll take their health benefits.
