I didn't grow up with my grandparents living near. Both sets of grandparents lived far away. They lived in Canada and we live in California. We did get to visit them ALL the time or at least it felt that way to me. Most summers, with my dad, mom and siblings, we would take a trip and DRIVE about 3,000 miles to Canada to visit some of my favorite relatives. Such wonderful memories!!
When I see pictures like this or when we drive only about mile or so to either of Aubrey's wonderful grandmas, I do not take it for granted. It makes me smile. It makes me thankful. Aubrey Rose and Austin are so very blessed to live pretty much down the street from their Oma and Mimi. What a blessing for us all, so they can share memories and moments like this.
