World's Greatest Grandparents

The challenge today on my favorite scrapbooking website is to share one of your fondest memories of a special time with one of your grandparents..


My grandparents on their wedding day in 1947...


I was so lucky to have the greatest grandparents! We lived only 20 minutes away from them, so I got to see them a lot. My grandpa would take me to the coffee shop with him in the morning and get me a chocolate ice cream cone for breakfast! Grandparents are the best!! My grandmother worked in a clothing store, and since my grandfather was retired he would make dinner. Whenever he was making hamburgers he would put Velveeta cheese on them and before he did he would call me from the other room and ask me to try the cheese to see if it was ok to go on the hamburgers. I liked cheese. I was an only child and was lucky to have so much attention from them. My grandparents went to Florida in the winter and the first time we went to visit them we went to Sea World. I loved it! I loved Shamu. Before we left the park that day my grandpa told me to look in a bag and in it was a big stuffed Shamu! I loved it. The next year they brought back a mama Shamu and her baby. They were the best! I love them so much. They were always there for me and took real good care of me. I will be forever grateful to have them as my grandparents.
