Ascension Thursday Picnic ~ 2010

~ Our Picnic Menu ~

Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches
(It is traditional to eat some sort of bird since Jesus "flew" to heaven.)

Strawberries & Grapes
(The fruit represents Christ, the first fruit of all men.)

Cream Puffs
(Symbolizing the clouds that were in the sky.)

Sparkling Lemonade
(Chosen for the "rising" bubbles.)

"Not too sweet, not too sour."

“Just too PINK!”

My children all love to quote the Sound of Music.  I also noticed that the girls were wearing the very same dresses as last year.  (I am surprised they still fit!)  The deer also came to see what we were up to, but I didn't take many pictures... We were too busy enjoying the afternoon!

Happy Ascension Thursday! 


  1. Looks like so much fun! I wish we lived closer!

  2. What a spread! We didn't get any pictures of our picnic, I brought my camera without its battery. But I enjoyed the time in a different way without having to snap photos! Thanks for all the great ideas.

  3. What a beautiful picnic! I am glad you had nice weather to go outside.
    Thank you for sharing,

  4. I am not Catholic, but we are Church of Sweden and receive much inspiration from your site in ways to incorporate the life of the Church (universal) into our lives. Thank you for such beautiful posts and suggestions.
