Ascension Day

This past thursday was Ascension day and the local Amish and Mennonite communities spend the day relaxing and socializing away from any work related activities. These two photos are of Amish children ascending the ladder on the slide at a local park. Ascension day commemorates Jesus ascension into Heaven and is celebrated 39 days after Easter.
