Moving Forward

Thank you to all who posted positive thoughts about things being taken from Joey's grave. My husband will be filling out a formal complaint with the city. As the items typically taken are the flowers and more adult items, we are thinking it is a grown up. Strangely only once has a toy left been taken. I hate that we have to do anything, but I'm not sure it will stop if someone doesn't realize it's against the law and can be prosecuted. I really hope this an ignorance on their part and not malicious in any way.

Meanwhile, we are doing fine. I was up at the cemetery this week and was able to clear off his grave before the city removed the flowers. That made me feel good and is a step in the right direction for me as I really struggle with going. It was nice to have that quiet time with my son.

While the summer begins to heat up, we are trying to do some fun things as a family. We took the kids with our cousins to the zoo last week. I've never seen it so packed. That part (including the 45 minute wait for the train) wasn't fun, but it wasn't too hot and we enjoyed ourselves.

Yesterday we went to the $1 movie in town but that didn't go as well as the zoo. Still trying to figure out what the kids and I enjoy. I think it might be time to blow up the kiddie pool in the backyard for them to enjoy.


  1. Glad ur moving forward. I'm trying to figure out things to do with my boys too but, it's so hot here in Texas . Scorching!

  2. My mom lives in IL. The cemetery most of our family was layed to rest in, including my dad has always had a problem with others taking things left on the graves. My mom spends so much time and $ to make arrangements look nice and then to have them taken hurts her so.
    She will go to their dumpster to get her arrangements out if she hasn't picked them up.
    So sorry for your loss.

  3. Have you guys done the Grotto trail up Payson canyon? It's a fun, short little activity that we love.

    So sorry about Joey. That makes me really sad that people would be so inconsiderate!

    So sorry for you.
    Just found out about Joey's story through some of your layouts and couldn't stop crying.
    I pray for your family.
