(this was at our wedding, where she would have been sitting had she still been alive)
We started off the trip with a pitstop to costco. They have better bouquets than the flower shop at the cemetery. Lewie picked the flowers out, and carefully chose this specific one because of the pink gerbera (?) daisy. He said, "Pick me up mom so I can see all of 'em." Then he wanted me to put him back down and he chose this bouquet.
He was pretty proud of his selection.
My babies. I love them so, so much!
I had tried explaining, the very best I could, to Lewie, about Grandma Marion. I didn't think (and I still don't think) that he fully understood what I was trying to explain. I left it pretty simple. I didn't cry or show a lot of emotion or anything. However, when we left, he was sniffling..... and continued sniffling for about 30 minutes. When I had asked him (after about 5 minutes of sniffling), "What's wrong, buddy?" He said, "Grandma Marion's gone, mom. We can't leave her there. Grandma Marion's gone." I didn't DARE let him see my eyes get watery. I just thought it was pretty interesting that his thoughts went there when I didn't go into detail much about it. When we got home, he had asked Jason, "Does Grandma Marion talk?" =(
These girls.... Tay and her good friend, Sam came up with a wonderful idea while we were at the cemetary today.... I'll touch on that again soon.... I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week!
He sang her Happy Birthday at least 5 times.... Love him so much....
