  1. Hi Cheryl! I love this post. Anything to do with Grandparents is so important, we all love them 🙂

    My parents live in Nova Scotia and my daughter and I are in Ontario. So, giving our distance but desire to spend time together we have planned a family Google+ hangout for Sunday!

    My Dad loves learning new things to do online, I love Google+ so it’s a win win.

    Thanks again for posting this! I added you to my Google Reader 🙂
