I can't blame them, it was a long day. #2 and I headed out this morning for our typical CMU Saturday (and got there early so we saw some cool sights)
|This cool number, weird thing in the middle of a maze|
|A circular bench! We rolled around until I got sick. So cool!|
|But TWO Madonna and Child statues in the School of Architecture. I misjudged. Mea culpa.|
We were missing a few but the Saints party was better than ever. We had familiar Saints, unknown Saints, new and old Saints. It was a wonderful afternoon of learning and playing and having fun. Who knew that St. Charles Borromeo was the patron of apple orchards or St. Julian the Hospitaller is patron of circus performers or St. Barbara is patron of engineers? We learned these and more on our scavenger hunt!
|St. Charles Borromeo|
|St. John Bosco|
|St. Helen and St. Kateri|
|All the Saints|
Vigil Mass, as you know, was rest time for the little three...just enough to refuel for the three blocks to fill our bags to bursting. I told the kids they were so lucky to live in the city...the yield is crazy.
|He described himself as "the Chopped winner"|
|#1 enjoyed her last year by dressing as a Sister. A+ for evangelization opportunity.|
All you Holy Men and Women, pray for us! We are blessed.
