I asked my 95yr old grandma, if she could have ANYTHING in the world, what would it be!? If money was no object! Go anywhere, do anything, have anything, what would it be...? She was silent and thought for a min, then finally said.... “I would like a really nice lobster salad sandwich!” I was like WOW! I can actually do that for you!!! Then she said no, no, no, that is waay too expensive... lol. I said I got you mama! 😉👍🏼. #greatfulforthelittlethings#greatfullife#grandma#lobstersalad#twinoaks#seafoodlife#visityourgrandparents
How to survive when it's hot and/or you're still sleepy and/or you drove late-nite so your boy can see his grandparents and/or your Lego helicopter won't crank up? Massive amounts of Black Fox Cold Brew!!! I grabbed the biggest growler we got, because I have a cold brew problem... Freely admitted! There is no shame in my caffeine game. Grab a growler, fill it up, and come back for cheap refills whenever you run out. Open now!
We broke this 91 year old beauty out today! She couldn’t understand why she was in the home in the first place 😜
I took her for a beautiful long drive through the countryside and watched her face light up when she saw the farmers on the fields, hay bales drying and Mt. Baker watching it all in the distance. She loves Baker.
I got told stories of when she first came to BC from the Prairies and how she had hated it, about seeing my Grandpa for the first time (the memories still gives her flutters), and how she used to milk the cows and give her dog a squirt. I heard the same stories on repeat for the hour, because #dementia , but I loved every minute.
None of us could stop smiling.
Visited the ‘hood today-man ooooo man do I ❤️ this man! Although the visit was short we covered a lot.. we talked about how we both hit milestones this year I’ll be 29 and he will be 89 😳😱 talked about Trump and Kanye West and how great America is and will continue to be-we talked about my favorite tree 🌳 that had to be cut down and all the memories of me climbing to the very top without falling or breaking bones~we talked about Grandma and what she would be like if she were alive and as we ended our visit my grandpa did what he always does- he prayed over me and thanked God for allowing him to see another sunny day... #goodfriday#visityourgrandparents#88stilllooksgreat#mygrandpaisbetterthanyours#stillmissmytree
As many of you know, my grandma is my favorite person. Lately though she's been confused with the days of the week. Today though, we had a great laugh. She told me to look in the backyard because a big tree fell (from last week's storm) I checked the backyard and yes, there was a tree that fell. I told her I saw the tree and she cracks up yelling April Fools!!! I said grandma, it's March! April Fools is in a few weeks. Apparently she didn't even know a tree fell and tried to trick me with an April fools joke. She then cracked herself up so much and said "guess I'm the April Fool"!! 😂🤣👵🏻♥️ 📸: @fortin.macphotography #grandmatime#visityourgrandparents#respectyourelders#amusingourselves#aprilfools#90andstillgoingstrong
Blue eggs for breakfast... there’s more snow covering the roads and cabin fever has really taken its toll. Made me think about my granma whose stuck in her house 24hours a day sometimes completely alone with deteriorating eyesight. Made me so sad she’s one hell of a strong lady to keep a smile on her face every time I visit! #visityourgrandparents or even just give them a call 5 minutes chat can really make their day. #snow#cabinfever
"Standin' shoulder to shoulder with him now
I still feel small
And I'm still lookin up to him like he's ten feet tall
Theres somethin' about that generation
These days I think we need 'em
More than we ever did before
But they dont make 'em like that anymore"
GRANDPA APPRECIATION POST!!
If you know this song, you know what its about and to me it describes my grandpa to a T. I have the best grandpa. Like seriously. Sometimes I feel bad because he raised two pretty awesome sons and each son gave him two granddaughters. Haha but that didn't stop him. He probably taught us all how to drive(by driving the truck around and picking up bales), we all know how to fix fence, I'm pretty sure we can all ride horses, he always let us name the animals(that's why he had a dog named Spot and a horse named Patches), he always took time out of his evenings or weekends and would watch some of our sports games(literally driving all across the province for all of us) and even when I lived in the city he always phoned to see how I was or get me to meet him for lunch at least once a month. I'm very lucky in that I get to see my grandparents almost everyday and I definitely don't take it for granted. Happy birthday grandpa!! I hope you had a great day and here's to another trip around the sun! 😘😘 #jasonblaine#theydontmakeemlikethatanymore#grandpa#family#love#visityourgrandparents#weddingpic#happybirthday#yourethebest

👵🏻🙏🏻💙 Babiččiny ruce pro mě vždy byly vzpomínkou na dětství. Pozorovala jsem, jak jimi obratně kouzlí v kuchyni či na zahradě. Zvedala hrozivě malou buclatou pěst nad hlavu, když jsme provedli lumpárnu. Pochválila nás pohlazením, když se nám něco povedlo. Od malička nás vodila za ruku a ukazovala svět. Dnes, kdy svedu chodit zdatně sama, se role vystřídaly a často jí jako silnější můžu na oplátku zase pomoct já. Hrozně ráda poslouchám její zážitky a zkušenosti, člověk se z toho leccos naučí. Máme to štěstí, že nám stále vytváří láskyplný a veselý domov, i to nám formuje rodinné hodnoty, za které jsem s přibývajícími léty stále vděčnější. Stejně tak, že nám četla a odpovídala na nespočet zvídavých dotazů. Jednou bych chtěla být alespoň z poloviny tak vitální, jako je naše Zdenička ve svém požehnaném věku. Vážím si jejího dobrosrdečného charakteru i toho, že ačkoliv je vzrůstu malého, je to VELKÁ ŽENA, která má pro strach uděláno. Tohle je taková malá óda na moji skvělou babičku a měla by vás přimět k tomu, abyste brzy navštívili tu vaši, dokud máte příležitost. Babičky jsou naše druhé maminky, kterých bychom si všichni měli vážit. Mějte pěkný večer ❤️ #grandma#familygoals#thatwhatcounts#visityourgrandparents
Having a witchy moment. Stopped by my great grandparents resting place today. Fun fact: My great grandmother was referred to as "mom" by all family members. She was a chainsmoker for over 60 years and never got cancer. I only smoke these cloves on special occasions, because I'm probably not as invincible as she was, lol. Here's one for "mom" ♥️ #allblack#witchy#visityourgrandparents#momandpapa
