I remember spending my vacation time during school breaks years back. My father used to drive us for hours on a weekend in order for us to get there. I was always excited when school was about to be over for the summer since this meant a whole month of enjoyment and adventures for me. Our grandfolks were always a bundle of joy to be with and this is why I and my brothers kept fond memories of them by keeping albums of photos and memorabilia’s that reminded us of those precious moments.
We were a close family to begin with and the distance was never a real concern. Communication was never a problem and we never missed out on any single occasion that required phone calls. There were times when I sent handwritten letters with pictures of ourselves for them to read. There are a lot of things that I reminisce about, especially the times when I and grandpa would just sit side by side in one of those Adirondack chairs in their beautifully landscaped backyard while he told me stories that even up to now, make me recall how it was years back.
