• Earth Day Picnic

    filed under: I Am Mommy on April 16, 2012

    Earth Day, which is April 22, is a great time to be thankful for and bring attention to this beautiful world that we live in.

    I love having picnics with my kids.  They seem to delight and fascinate in the smallest of things… calling attention to details that I would normally take for granted.


    They have this inner joy and peace in their surroundings… seeing a ladybug crawling up a long blade of grass or a butterfly slowly dancing through flower blossoms.

    I love that we get to spend time together outside breathing in clean fresh air and seeing the glorious nature that God created.

    I am trying to do everything I can to make sure my children always have a blue sky to gaze into!


    This year, The Nature Conservatory is putting together a global effort to help preserve the earth.  They want to give back to this beautiful earth that we call home, and I think that is great!

    In addition to their tireless dedication to preserving the earth, they have graciously offered to give away one totally stocked picnic basket valued at $75  to a lucky reader!

    Spent part of the day weeding my flower bed while coldest played in the mud. 🙂

      Oops! *Oldest* (not coldest)

    Admired so much, enjoy to have picnic wit children.

    Such a sweet post, Amanda! I have been meaning to have a picnic with my kids lately too. We did spend Earth Day outside playing in our garden and with our chickens, so I guess that counts for something 🙂

    Don't Pass on Dessert!
