Earth Hour

I don't know how many of you knew about Earth Hour, but last Saturday, March 28th, apparently the whole world turned off all electricity from 8:30-9:30 local time. Trish and I normally aren't very earthy/granolaey/whoeverelsey might get excited about Earth Hour, but it sounded like fun. We got home around 8:00 and started cooking dinner. The oven took longer to pre-heat then expected so Trish's chicken nuggets didn't get their full 14 minutes by the time 8:30 rolled around, but at 8:30 we turned off all our lights, unplugged our electric things, turned off Trish's new favorite Scentsy plug ins, lit some candles and enjoyed the night. We ate dinner sitting on the floor and sadly it was the first time in a while that we have eaten without the TV on. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. After eating we used that little lantern type candle on the table below to walk upstairs and find some games to play. We had to keep playing games until Trish started winning so we went through a few rounds of sequence, yahtzee, etc until Trish found her new favorite game with 9 cards. I didn't beat her once! It was a fun night and Earth Hour turned into Earth Hours for us and hopefully it will turn into a family tradition in the years to come.
