memorial day weekend {monday}

7 Jun
On Monday of Memorial Day weekend, we had a family day. It was a day when everyone could actually all get together. We decided to get together to have a little memorial for my grandmother. My grandmother wanted her ashes spread in the ocean off the shore of Great Island Common. We decided that Memorial Day would be a good day to go out on the boat to do just that, and it just happened to be 3 months from the day she passed away. 
All the ashes were separated into bags so we could all have our own moment and do what we needed to do. There was also a skipping rock in each bag so it would sink. And we brought some daisies along because those were DeDe’s favorite.

We took out my parent’s new boat, which is named Sweet Gal because that is what DeDe called everyone. It was a beautiful day on the river. 

 

Even though it was an emotional day, we had a lot of fun on the boat and took a lot of “kid” pictures. I love these people. We have so much fun together.

There was a beautiful sunset when we returned to the house so we had some fun down on the dock.

We ended the night with a fire in the fire pit and some fireworks on the beach.

It was a super emotional day but it was a beautiful day with some of my favorite people in the world. It was a good way to end the weekend.
