Last Friday I flew out to Virginia for my grandpa’s memorial. Ben and his two girls stayed home. It was hard to be apart, but I’m so grateful I had the time with family to say good-bye and Ben had this special weekend with Leila. She might have thrown a “spectacular” tantrum when he tried to get her into the official costume, but the back-ups did just fine for the two Saturday events and the owl feeding, pumpkin coloring and picture taking they included. Speaking of which, I apologize for the excessive amount of photos, I’m just so in love with all of them and the man that lugged around the good camera to capture them.
