Celebrating Ascension Thursday

Today we had a "picnic on the hilltop" to celebrate Ascension Thursday. 
The idea for a picnic was found at Shower of Roses.

 Chicken Macaroni Salad.
It is traditional to eat some sort of bird since Jesus "flew" to heaven.
Fruit Salad
The fruit represents Christ, the first fruit of all men.
Powdered Donuts
Symbolizing the clouds that were in the sky.
Sparkling Water
Chosen for the "rising" bubbles.
DOS serving fruit
It was a wonderful evening and definitely a new family tradition! 
So then the Lord Jesus, 
after He had spoken to them, 
was taken up into heaven and 
sat down at the right hand of God.
~Mark 16:19
