We ended up doubling up some days to do the readings because we had some odd moments of illness (yes, again...) and a fussy baby again. Yesterday we spent on the road to an old friend's wedding and enjoyed a hotel night - with a pool! This "meal" was perfect as a light dinner after the junkiness of a road trip. I also think this would make a perfect Sunday morning breakfast/brunch by moving a few foods around. For instance, topping a pancake with some fruit and honey and a dollop of whip cream (or a glass of milk).

The boys are so not cut out for decorating but after some prompting, they helped put on a tablecloth, some candles, and our Garden of the Good Shepherd book.
We had some sparkling apple cider I found post-Easter at the store on clearance. It was very tasty! The kids loved using our wine glasses, though they need some lessons on how to hold it!
My husband says this looks like our son had too much "wine" but really Skipper would not open his eyes for a picture.
For the bread, there were some rolls leftover from last week, when I made the shepherd's staffs. Honey to top the roll and fruit on the side.
Ice-cream, of course for the milk! And... I completely forgot to snag a picture. The kids enjoyed it just the same!
Finally, once it's up and running, I will link my party up with others over at Catholic Cuisine! Until then, see you at the next party!
