Every year around the Feast day of the Transfiguration of our Lord, our church holds their annual picnic.
Here are some pics from this Sunday, which fell exactly on the Feast Day.
Baskets of fruit awaiting to get blessed.
A Typikon is served under the trees.
The blessing of the fruit, flowers and honey.
My blessed basket.
The kids of the Youth League sold ice cream and lemonade after lunch.
Pinata time! I stuffed it with chocolates, bracelets, rubber animals, and noise makers.
It's a cheap way to entertain them!
Then I had them do a scavenger hunt - look for pine cone, leaves, something that begins with a D, feather, etc.
It wasn't all hectic....there were moments of complete and awesome peace.
...and out of the deep comes.....
He kept stealing the fish we were catching. The moment one got caught, he would zoom in and snap it off the hook.
She was finally able to pull out a fish that she could keep! Notice the disgruntled turtle in the water behind her.
...and then his girl friend showed up and he was happy again.
