Whether you are able to enjoy time with your grandparents or if you are left with special memories of them, Grandparents Day is a fun little reminder of how sweet grandmas and grandpas are. Personally, I couldn't tell you how much I love my Poppy. He's a special piece of my heart and can make me laugh until I cry. My Nanny lives in Canada, and while I miss her terribly, I love calling her to hear about her dart team, her mini-bowling league, and her exciting bingo tournaments. Do you have any favorite moments with your grandparents to share? Comment on our Facebook page, and you could WIN the adorable personalized Grandma notepad featured below. The contests ends Sunday, 9/9 at midnight EST so hurry on over there!
Above and below are some photos of our team with their grandparents. Totally heart warming, right?!
Have a beautiful weekend everyone, and don't forget to enter the contest!
