I love Earth Day. I have no idea why. It's just such a great day to enjoy our beautiful Earth. I was so glad when the cold weather broke this year long enough to play outside and have a "picmic" as Kent would say. It wasn't much of a picmic either. We had drinks and some string cheese. But he looks happy enough.
Then he got to run around with Cutlass. She might be getting old, but she still loves to run with Kent.
When Clark got home from school we had to choose one of our beautification projects to work on. His choices were... 1 - The Great American Backyard Clean Up or 2 - Operations Put the Rocks in the Box. His response, "I wish Earth Day was in the winter." He was even getting paid to fill the boxes with rocks which is what we decided to work on.
He spent most of his time picking up roly polies.
We did a little Earth Day dinner. I figured they should try to eat something grown from the earth. So we had strawberries and pineapple with an Orange Creamsicle Fruit Dip which Kent preferred to eat without the fruit. We also had a Chinese Chicken Salad with Sesame Dressing. It was SOOO good. I added some mandarin oranges which made it even better. We ate this salad for two nights...that is unheard of in the Wilde household. We don't do leftovers.
Kent enjoying his toothpicks, or "pickles" as he calls them sometimes.
Clark taking a mean bite out of that yummy strawberry.
We finished the night up with some dirt and worms and Wings of Life, the new Disneynature documentary.
LOVE Earth Day.
