Remember when I posted about missing my grandparents?! Well, we finally went and visited them over the weekend! We had such a fun time! My parents were able to meet us there so we got to visit them as well! We went on a couple adventures (can't wait to blog about those!), had a BBQ (a lot of my extended family came to that and it was SO nice to catch up with everyone! Oh and I made my apple snicker salad for the BBQ, it was a HIT!), played games, and relaxed! It was the perfect memorial weekend!
This year my sweet grandparent's will be turning 96 and 97 years old! They will also be celebrating 77 years of marriage. SEVENTY SEVEN! How amazing is that?!
It was so neat talking with them. Especially when Eric was around, he could get my grandad just a-talkin'! They have been through so much together, they have seen so much. My grandma said the best thing that ever happened to them was electricity. And running water. She remembers her first bathroom ever. I take it all for granted...that is for sure! I think we had them blushing a little when we were asking about their dating history and proposal. Haha! My grandad tried to turn it around and get us talking about when Eric proposed to me instead :)
I am so grateful that my grandparents are still alive, that I am able to have these opportunities to get to know them better. I love them so much! I truly do have an amazing family!
p.s. Who made the apple snicker salad for a BBQ over the weekend?! Did you love it? ;)
