Getting Ready for Decoration

Mylea, Mom, and I headed down to Leightyn's cemetery last Thursday to get things ready for Leightyn's decoration service. Uncle Bill and Aunt Darla met us there to help with the flowers and cleaning.
Darla brought her daughter (fourth child) Isabelle. Mylea loved getting to watch Isabelle play in the stroller.
The cemetery was freshly mowed so Leightyn's monument needed a good cleaning. Mylea took it upon herself to clean Leightyn and everyone else in a close proximity. She loved the bucket of water.
Mylea picked out some flowers for Grandma Nancy (Sissy) and for Leightyn. After finding the perfect place, she stuck them in the ground.
If you look closely, you can see that Mylea's flowers have a pink glitter bunny, a sparkly yellow bunny, and a orange egg (that some little girl took a bite out of).
Darla made a beautiful arrangement with my favorite flowers and Leightyn's favorite colors.
Mylea helped straighten up the angel next to Grandma Nancy.
I love this little girl that Janis brought down. I have one at home and it reminds me of the many days we spent outside blowing bubbles.
Flowers from Grandad and Jo
Mylea decided to move her flowers to a different "perfect" spot.
White, yellow, and red roses from Grandad.
Flowers from Daddy and Mommy. As soon as I saw them, I knew they were the ones. The wildflowers remind me of the flowers Leightyn would pick in the yard and at the park.
We were there about an hour and a half and it was HOT! Notice the Mylea had stripped down because it "was hot for working".
Taking a break
