A memorial [Aug. 17th, 2007|10:26 pm]
Great Grandma Ruby died, which was the reason for the plane ride yesterday. Mom tried to explain it to me, but I still don't quite understand. We went to a tiny memorial in the cemetary today, which was lots of fun for me, especially after being cooped up in the car on the drive down from Seattle. I ran around in the grass with all my uncles and second cousins, and had a generally good time. I'm glad I was able to capitalize on being the only great grandchild in a huge group of adults who think I'm cute. When everyone was singing some of Grandma Ruby's favorite songs, I danced along, and when they were finished I exclaimed, "Sing it again, Mommy!" I also took the opportunity to announce during a quiet moment, in case someone was uninformed as to why we were there: "Great Grandma died. That's SAD. She's by JESUS." The best part was putting flowers into the vases that Aunt Sue brought -- I wanted to put all of them in, but they would only let me put in the one for me and the one for my dad, since he couldn't make it.
