Today, we had a great Earth Day celebration at our local environmental center. The twins and I started the day out walking in the procession of the species parade. We got to carry/pull these fantastic paper mache animals that students at a local school had created. People all along the parade loved them and commented on them. Maybe next year we’ll make our own! I was also decked out in Canada Goose paraphernalia, thanks to my friend at Goose Watch Alliance, and wore my “Bacon Had a Mom” t-shirt, which always gets fun reactions.
After the parade, we immediately set up our small VegNet table and spent several hours chatting with people and giving away samples, coupons, and literature. We were in the demonstration garden area, a little off the main drag, and near the live music, so it was a pleasant, mellow day. It was one of our first warm spring days and the only negative is that I fried the heck out of my face!
Topping off a good day: making good vegan food as a family. Italian meatball pasta goulash, fresh asparagus, and triple vanilla shortcake with strawberries. Mmmm.
