Komodo dragons need blessings too. This is Chili.
Edgar in his Easter church outfit.
The event started with a parade involving horses, llamas, goats, etc. - all getting blessed.
These girls brought their birds.
Aww, bunnies and puppies.
Cardinal Mahoney is behind the guy on the horse.
The Cardinal had a really large holy water sprinkler. The dogs were all shocked by the shower.
Edgar, waiting to get blessed, and happy to be out in the world after 2 months of laying low due to knee surgery.
Darlene and Kaiya accompanied us.
A turtle named Petunia
Mona's mom had this dress made by a seamstress.
I briefly thought this was Janice Dickinson.
I give Mona the Best Dressed award.
Edgar isn't sure what to make of the Chinese Crested dog in the guayabera shirt.

We waited in a long line to get blessed. I think it took about 45 mins.

Edgar and I getting blessed!
Edgar asks Kaiya, "Why is the Cardinal blessing me when the Catholic Church says I don't have a soul?"
Holy water-spotted Easter shirt
Go Butler Bulldogs!
After blessing, we stopped at Cielito Lindo for taquitos. Darlene was impervious to Edgar's begging attempts. I, of course, wasn't.
Who can resist that face?
