Smoky Mountain Picnic

It was so nice to be able to see hubby today. He has been working the 3pm to 7am shift, and was able to meet us for Mass this morning after he got off. I had packed along our feast and so after Mass we headed up to the lake near fire camp for a picnic lunch.

We found a nice shady spot under a few trees not too far from the lake. Despite the smoke, it was still beautiful.

Rascal got right to work coloring in the brand new coloring book he received from the tooth fairy last night. Can you believe it? She actually remembered on the FIRST night for ONCE!!

Awww! There is my toothless boy, with a bouquet of flowers for his momma!

Lunch was delicious!!!

Although, it is a little bit harder to eat without those two front teeth...

Hubby isn't the only one that hasn't been sleeping! Yikes!

After lunch it was time for a little running and exploring...

The time flew, and we had to let daddy go back to camp so he could try and get a couple more hours of sleep before he was back on the clock at 3pm. We miss him already!!!


  1. Wow, beautiful pictures!! Looks like you had a wonderful day, despite the bruising that happened earlier!!

    So happy you were all able to see daddy!!

    God Bless!

  2. Your feast day celebration looks wonderful. What a beautiful day you had for it. So glad hubby could enjoy it with you.

  3. Your previous post about painting the wee saints has inspired me to give it try. I painted all weekend and am through Blessed Kateri. Your wee saints helped me to visualize taking the picture from the book to painting on the doll. I know have the confidence to finish up on my own...however I am anxiously awaiting the rest of your week saints. I will post on my blog when I finish. Thanks!

  4. That looks so yummy! And it bet everyone loved spending time with daddy!!

  5. Wonderful pics. What a blessed family.

  6. It looks like you had a really great day! Glad that you and the kids got to spend time with husband/daddy! Sometimes it seems like there's never enough time, doesn't it?

  7. This looks blissfully ideal! What a day, what a location, what a meal and such a beautiful family!

  8. Thank you everyone!

    RMA ~ That is wonderful! I would love to see a picture of them!!! I am not quite sure how I will pull off Blessed Kateri... That is why I stopped with her. Hopefully I will have some extra time to continue soon, though it may be awhile with my husband gone.

    Aubrey ~ Your right... There never is enough time! It goes SO fast!

  9. I love that last picture!!! It is so beautiful!

    That's what you take to a picnic??? You way out-do yourself!

  10. Hi, Jessica! Wonderful day for you all! The food looks great. I'm off to bed and will pray for your dh's safety and for your "survival" in the meantime *wink*. Hugs,
