I never know what to do on her birthday. Nothing ever feels right. This year we decided to do something fun as a family because if she was here, we would be doing something fun to celebrate her birthday.
We had brunch at the local breakfast place. The girls were fairly well behaved and our timing was perfect in terms of not having to wait for a table.
We then visited the cemetery after brunch. Rich spent some time trying to clean up the growth around the flowers we planted a few weeks. Again, no matter what we do there, it just never looks right.
As we were getting ready to leave, a butterfly fluttered around us.
Rich purchased season passes to the Roger Williams Zoo so we decided to visit there for a few hours in the afternoon. The weather was absolutely amazing - bright and sunny, not hot but not chilly. I really like the idea of having season passes now. We didn't feel like we had to spend the entire day there like when we buy tickets just for the day. The girls enjoyed our visit. It was just enough time for them to see some animals without draining them. Or us.
And so another year passes. It's weird.
