For the last 4 years, my family has established a tradition of visiting my dad’s grave and then going to a park to have a family picnic. It’s a great way to memorialize my dad and then spend some fun family time together, cherishing every minute we have together- which is what my dad would want us to do.
This was Foster’s first trip to the cemetery, and Emma’s 4th trip. Obviously, I know she doesn’t truly understand who we are visiting or why. But I do think she understands the importance of the day, and the importance of family. Here is a picture of the kiddos with the flowers- I put some pictures of my kids on my dad’s gravesite… he sure would have loved to meet them in person.
