I was thrilled to actually have some flowers blooming this year to place on the headstones.
I love my pink lilac that Mom gave me a few years ago. It blooms a little later than the more traditional ones and so it was at just the perfect height of bloomage for this special day!
I learned at our second cemetery that you're not supposed to leave glass jars on the graves. Whoops.
Now I know.

Ben was Grandpa's buddy all morning. They went walking hand in hand at each cemetery smelling the flowers.
Ben wrapped up the morning with a staring seizure at our picnic in the park and promptly fell asleep in my arms.
He ended the day with another one.
But the good news is: HE SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW!It didn't matter that he woke up before six o'clock both mornings...I was just thrilled that he made it through the night :)
