Once in a Blue Moon

   
Did you know that last night's full moon was a Blue Moon?  A Blue Moon occurs when there is a second full moon during a month, a relatively rare occurrence, and/or when there is a fourth full moon in a season, also a rare occurrence.  Since the next Blue Moon won't happen until July 2015, we thought we should celebrate now!  For our dinner, I made us a Man on the Moon pizza.  I used the recipe here and added mushroom and olive facial features.  It was a hit!  Bryce and I also enjoyed a Blue Moon brew!



For dessert, the children made a moon phase chart with Oreos.  It was easy and I believe they actually learned something!




Perhaps the most memorable part of our celebration was piling into the truck, right around normal bedtime, and finding a field to lie in the back of the truck and moon-gaze.  Watching the moon rise above the trees as we hunkered down with pillows, blankets and a million crickets was special indeed.

  2. You came up with such interesting ways to connect with the blue moon. It would be hard to choose a favorite. 'Your moon' reminds us of the three beautiful evenings we enjoyed the moon and moonlight while camping recently. Isn't the moon great!
