This week I was able to attend the annual Butterfly Festival in Texas. Many of you might remember that after my Aunt died, we had a garden built at the EmilyAnn Theatre and Gardens. This is an amazing place that was opened in honor of the founder's daughter who was killed by a drunk driver. EmilyAnn loved theatre and in the summer and thorughout the year, they have camps for drama and put on the most amazing musicals and shows!!! They started releasing butterflies for loved ones several years ago. The local schools and people raise the butterflies for them in preparation for the weekend. This year, they released over 3000 butterflies throughout the day!! If you are ever near Wimberley (near Austin) the 3rd weekend of April, make a point to attend!!!
Started our Jonah curriculum today at church
Tonight we had the honor of attending our friend's son's senior recital. Wow! He was amazing!!
Aren't these beautiful? These were taken later in the week, but I missed a picture today. I was too busy getting ready to leave at the end of the week.
We had a follow up evening for our 40/40 prayer retreat at church tonight. We had a potluck dinner and then shared what God taught each of us during this time of fasting and prayer. What a blessing!!! We ended the evening with communion.
I have been working hard to grow my nails out (nail biter!) and so I treated myself to a shellac manicure...I LOVE it and they say it will last 2-3 weeks!!!
Fashion statement or did she get up late?
I left today to meet my mom for the annual Butterfly Festival where we have a garden in honor of my Aunt. I could not believe this lady got on the plane with ONE curler in her hair...the rest of her hair was completely straight. weird! What was even funnier was me trying to snap the picture unnoticed!! :)
Visited my Aunt's garden this morning. This is in the entrance to the garden.
Butterflies were everywhere already!!! But it seemed like the flowers in my Aunt's garden attracted them more than any other location in the area!!!
This car pulled up next to me today.....hilarious!
Me and my mom in the gardens
My cousin's little girl releasing a butterfly
Wonder why my mom has rubber bands on her feet?
Her slippers kept falling off as she walked.....resourceful don't ya think?!
Everyone go ahead and link up!!!
