Sentimental Sunday – Grandparents Day

Well, it’s been a while since my last post! The summer was filled with so much fun and travel that my blog fell of my radar for a while. Time to get back to it …

In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed a proclamation that the first Sunday after labor day would be National Grandparents Day. So here are a few photos of grandparents and their loves from the family files …
