I feel so blessed that I got to grow up right next door to my grandparents! This allowed me to spend so much time with them and learn from them. They were both amazing human beings and two of the best grandparents ever!! From picking rocks up in Grandpa's yard (1 rock = 1 penny) to traveling to many AF reunions, I have so many great memories that I could share, but this is one of my favorites.
