Earth Day 06

Today Amy and I took the boys on a Scout outing for Earth Day. We went to the University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor. We stared the day out with a one hour walk through the trails. This was to do three things; first so we could show the boys some nature, second was to work one their hiking badge, and last was to thoroughly wear them out. Then after at the main building and green house there were lots of presenters for Earth Day with activities for the kids. Rodney and David made masks of endangered animals, boxes and shakers out of recyclable material, and lots of outer hand outs. They played with the bubbles and see live water bug larva. It was a very good day. All of us came home and took a nap.
