Possibilities and Playing Pokémon

Yesterday turned into an unexpected mix of spending time with all 4 of my children.

The day started out with Evan and I dropping off the twins at Sunday school and then going over to the cemetery to visit Jake and Sawyer.

The twins (and I) play Pokémon Go.  The cemetery happens to have a crazy amount of Pokémon stops – which is where the balls to catch Pokémon are collected.  Below is a picture of the cemetery.  The blue squares are all Pokémon stops.

The odd thing to me is that apparently some people come to the cemetery just to play Pokémon.   What might be even more odd is that I like the fact that where Jake and Sawyer are buried is right near a particular Pokémon stop (see below).  I like to think in some cosmic way that Jake and Sawyer are playing the same game that the twins and I are playing.

In addition to playing Pokémon Go, the twins decided that yesterday would be a great day for a Lemonade Stand to remember their brothers.  They set one up at the end of our driveway and raised money and awareness for the March of Dimes.

Would you like to join us in our efforts?  You can just click on this link and then click the “Walk with Me” button to join our Walk Team.  If that is not in the cards (which we know for most of you it is not), consider whether you can support us in our fundraising efforts.  Every dollar counts, and every dollar is matched by the hospital where our kids were born, so $1 donated = $2 to the March of Dimes.  Click on this link and click the “Donate Now” button.  Thanks for your support and any donation you can make!

  1. lanie, i love this post and fully agree with your thinking about all your children playing pokemon together… sad i missed the lemonade stand. we plan to see you all for the walk. xo

  2. Love the image of them all playing together! And sorry we can’t be there to drink lemonade with you.

  3. I love that they all play together, and I love how Fletcher and Alyssa are always thinking of their brothers and also thinking of the welfare of others. What wonderful kiddos! Tell them well done!

  4. Wow–totally amazing thing for those of us who would never have thought about those Pokeman stops–what a perfect place to experience together! Save us some lemonade for when we get there for a visit!

  5. […] is it odd that there is now a small ditch around their headstones?  Are Jake and Sawyer just giving me a way to take care of them? Or, are they playing a game? […]
