dedication day

Kris & Samantha have been waiting for a time when we were in Austin to have Charis dedicated (since we are her Godparents). So Saturday, Charis was dedicated to God at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center, where Samantha works.

Kris' little sister, Katie led us in a few songs.

Kris' dad did the dedication. It was really neat. Everyone gathered in a circle around Charis to pray. She did very well (especially with the help of some crackers) with the event & was excited for the lunch that followed. :)

After lunch, we toured the gardens. Samantha took us to beds that she manages (the Butterfly Garden) & even showed us the butterflies/cocoons that she's raising.

3 butterflies had come out of their cocoons, so she brought them out & released them. It was pretty cool & drew a big crowd. :)
