In honor of my parents for all of the weekend in between today and the anniversary of my dad dying, December 4th, the girls and I will take a portion of their ashes and scatter them at some of their favorite local places.
Today we went to Anna Maria City Pier.
Whenever we had someone visit us from out of town or if it was someones birthday (either my mom or dad) we would go out to the restaurant at the end of the pier.
Today the girls and I drove out to the end of Anna Maria Island to scatter their ashes at the water beside the pier.
I have a picture of me and my parents together under this same sign
Posing together with the jar of their grandparent's ashes
Dumping them into the water
Watching them wash away
Looking out at the Skyway Bridge in the distance at the end of the pier
They loved walking on the pier
My little loves
Both of the girls loved where we went, although, I don't think they understood what we did entirely I'll have these pictures to show them when they're older to explain it all.
