And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight.
And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments.
Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come as you have seen him going into heaven.
The part in bold always makes me chuckle. And what I wonder is where was Our Lady? Of course she wouldn't have stood their gaping towards the Heavens for she *knew*...
Ascension Thursday is a free day for us. We started our day by attending the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Then later we wandered off to the zoo....
Frodo always finds a pal.
Bilbo in his chariot.
Lunch and play break.
There was an old woman (that would be me) who lived in a shoe....
Now this looks comfortable!
Who can resist a giraffe?
This is where the elephants used to be. I miss the elephants.
Back to the giraffes. There was even a baby one! (though very tall for a baby)
Aren't they just so intriguing?
I would think that strep throat on a giraffe would be very serious business!
This is by far the oddest play place I've ever seen but the children love it. Though they were sadly disappointed that the hanging swingy-thingy was removed.
I'm not exactly sure what this is suppose to be.
The merry-go-round is a must.
Frodo riding Aslan (our cast of characters is a bit off between Middle Earth and Narnia)
Bilbo went for a ride and I nearly fell over laughing as he was quite confused by this ride. He was catching glimpses of himself in the mirror.
Isn't this such a pretty carousel?
The gophers are always entertaining!
