Baby Mac and Oakland

The other day we made a family trip up to see Mac right before bedtime! We call the cemetery Mac's park and I really want Oakland to know it and like to go up there. I try to take her up as much as possible and she is always really good when we are up there. I don't know how it will be for her, not knowing Mac. I know that for me, Mac's park is more a place where I can remember him and I like to go up there because that's one of the few places we got to spend with his little body. I don't really know how to explain it, but his park is really special to me and I hope that my kids can understand that and feel the spirit that is in Baby Land.




I don't know how many of you saw My Mom's post but there was a statue up at Mac's park of Jesus with little kids sitting around his knee. It was a really meaningful statue to probably a lot of the parents that have children buried there. Well, someone took a sledge hammer to Jesus and they ended up having to take the whole status down. :( It was on the news but here is a picture of how it looks now. On my Mom's blog there is a picture of right after it happened. Mac's grave is right behind the garden so just a few feet away from this statue. It's really sad...











Hopefully Mac's headstone will be leveled this spring from the tractor that drove over it to add another friend to Mac's park. It's a little crooked right now, but what little boy does stay in tip top shape when they are almost 2? :)

WOW, I don't know how that person sleeps at night. How sad that they did that. Well I liked that your moms blog said they can't squash our spirits. Your family is amazing.

Are they going to rebuild the statue? I for one would donate some money to help rebuild it.

It took me 15 minutes to catch up but I can't get enough of cute Oak's hair, eyes adorable little face!!! I love the post you did about Josh saying "she's my girl." So, any chance I can get a new catalogue from upper case? I'm actually GOING to get some stuff if it's okay with you! I loved that they used Oaklands name!!!
