What is Earth Hour...you ask? For those of you who do not know, here is the basic definition on the Earth Hour website: On March 27, 2010, an estimated one billion people around the world came together to call for action on climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for just one hour—Earth Hour. Well, I already screwed up...I had the day wrong, so we participated on March 28, 2010, but we redeemed ourselves by turning out the lights for 2 hours! We turned off everything in the house...went outside and lit a small burn pile that we had been building full of limbs, leaves and such, yes I know this may be defeating the purpose, but we created our own light! It was a beautiful evening, the temperature was just right and we had a great time together as a family. I took some pretty neat looking photos of the flames, and the photo above is of the one light we couldn't turn off (it is controlled by the city) quite spooky isn't it! Our little man loved running outside at night and loved the neat-o fire, though he had a hard time understanding he couldn't run through it. So, for those of you who didn't participate this year, there is always next year, or heck, do it together as a family this weekend!
