We had our picnic dinner all ready for when hubby got home from work.
Everyone was very excited!
It is traditional to eat some sort of bird since Jesus "flew" to heaven.
I served Chinese Chicken Salad and Rice.
Since fruit represents Christ, the first fruit of all men, I served Strawberries.
However, the Italian tradition is beans and grapes... Perhaps next year?
All I could come up with for dessert that somewhat resembled clouds....
...were these simple Mini White Chocolate Pudding Pies. They were delicious!
My children were thrilled to each get there own Sparkling Ice!
These sparkling, carbonated drinks were chosen for their "rising" bubbles!
Captain feeding Snuggles a little bit of pudding...
I always love seeing my older children helping their little siblings.
"Mom, no more pictures!"
I stopped... for awhile! ;)
The camera came back out when a couple visitors arrived!
Even though we see deer daily, the children still get excited every time.
We all had such a great time!
I hope to make this an annual tradition for our family.
Now if I can get to the store, I think we will have Ascension Pancakes on Sunday after mass!
