Can you believe it has already been four weeks since Easter?  The weeks are going by so fast!   We are still celebrating the 50 days of Easter with The Garden of the Good Shepherd, and our fourth Garden Party is based on the theme "The Wind and Sea Obey Him."

*First of all, and most importantly, I'd like to ask you all to keep Charlotte and her family in your prayers as they grieve the loss of their precious little one this past week.  May our most Blessed Mother comfort them during this time of sadness.  

For this week, once again Angie emailed some pictures to share with everyone from her family's Good Shepherd's Garden Party.  Angie says, "This week we enjoyed pineapple boats, blue jello seas with Swedish fish, a real toy net as our tablecloth, and fish with BBQ pork. It was a fun feast, especially with the octopus cupcakes! We had the added blessing of celebrating my 7 year old son's birthday. He was thrilled with the party food!"

I posted pictures from Our Fourth Good Shepherd's Garden Party over at Shower of Roses.

Now it's your turn! How did your family celebrate this past week?
