Happy Earth Day

Yesterday Earth Day was celebrated around here more than today. We had a big Earth Day event at Elmwood Park here in Omaha. 

Lil' Green could wiggle his ears, and made his nose go in and out.

I have to admit that I wasn't exactly excited to go at first. I knew Travis would be busy the whole time. It was grey and cold outside. It ended up being fun after all.

Travis has been helping out with a nonprofit organization called Omaha Permaculture. In connection to Omaha Permaculture he started and did a demo of a stone carving.

We helped him set up. I broke his table in the process. The bar just snapped. I took that as a clue to go elsewhere. 

Let's Climb a Tree!

Isaak couldn't wait to climb a tree. Travis promised that he'd be able to climb one. 

Isaak was so excited. He usually hides his smiles lately. Right before climbing the tree he was all smiles. I wish I could have gotten passed the caution tape to capture the boys more.

Isaak was up first. He was told to make a knot about every 4 feet.

After that moment it was hard to get photos of Isaak. He went up pretty fast! The way the lighting was I could only capture a dark Isaak up in the trees.

I know he was hanging literally by a branch, but this photo looked like he was getting killed. It wasn't so bad when I brightened it up a bit.

Isaak went right on up to the top.

Mica on the other hand went up 3/4 of the way. He kept perching in a spot, and wouldn't move. Much of while he was climbing Isaak and I went back to be with Travis. We could still see Mica from where we were.

At the end of their tree climbing adventure the boys got a free t-shirt.


Then we went to go visit a lot of booths. We got a ton of "loot". Isaak in particular was super excited about it! He also got a butterfly milk weed plant, a bean seed necklace, and a frisbee.

I liked the 2 back bags. They are insulated.

It's funny to me that I got more pictures on Earth Day, than I did on Easter this year. Easter and Christmas are hard because we always celebrate when it's dark outside.

Did you do anything for Earth Day?

What a fun event! Tree climbing looks like a lot of fun. I hope they enjoyed themselves.

We did yard work on Earth Day. I started planting a few herbs for my garden this year too.

I did a double take when you said it looked like Isaak was being killed in the tree. And yep, sure enough, on second look that's definitely what it looked like. lol. Glad the boys had fun on earth day!

How fun that they got to climb the tree. I know my youngest would have loved it. Sorry to hear about the table. I hope that wasn't a big deal!! It is funny that you got more for Earth Day than Easter. :)
