The temperature was 35 with heavy, wet, snow coming down, this was around noon on Sunday. Great weather for an outdoor gathering to plant trees.
We are a pretty tough group, and the weather decreased the odds of a wildfire like we had here last year on Earth Day.
It wasn't long before the rain/snow let up and we eventually had some sun and blue sky.
Trees were planted. Some of the kids made markers to put next to the trees they planted so they can see how much it grows by next year.
We played games. Chuck made a BiminiRing Toss Game, which was fun. There is a hook attached to the Happy Day Acres board, and a metal washer on a line, you drop the washer and try to land it on the hook. Seems fairly easy but I never saw anyone hook the washer.
I, for one, had a great time, it was nice to be outdoors enjoying the fresh air. Thanks again Chuck and Betty.
On our way home we passed Goose Egg Lake, there is a small park here. What a difference a few hours make in the weather here in Michigan!
