This week’s 52 Snapshots of Life theme is nature. This theme is extremely appropriate for Sadie and I right now because we just got back today from a week in the Berkshires, the mountainous region of western Massachusetts. We explored nature this past week through a variety of forests, state parks, rivers, lakes, ponds and mountains. Sadie and I had lots of fun and took frequent advantage of the beauty of nature with lots of photos. Unfortunately nature did not include WiFi or good cell service, hence my lack of blog posts this week. Check back on the blog next week for more photos and stories about our trip to the Berkshires!
Today’s #52Snapshots of Life theme is Earth. Protecting our planet and the environment is a very important cause that is the central focus of two holidays this week, Earth Day and Arbor Day. Sadie and I celebrated Earth Day on Wednesday by enjoying some outdoor time. All our Spring flowers are in bloom and all the trees are starting to come to life again. It’s a great time of year to enjoy the beauty of nature. Unfortunately it’s also the time of year when breathing in all that nature causes sneezing fits and sinus headaches. So once Sadie had her fill of nature this Earth Day, we decided to celebrate the planet indoors. I blew up my inflatable Earth beach ball, and Sadie and I knocked the ball around in the comfort of my mostly allergen-free home.
