My grandparents are moving back to our area today. To say I am excited is an extreme understatement. I love my grandparents sooo much and am very thankful that at almost 40 I still have both of them. They are 86 and 85 and still live very much independently. They moved one state away to be closer to my uncle and to live a little more south for easier weather. This was 8 years ago. Their daughter, my mom, myself, and my two sisters and all of our families are up here. They decided that they wanted to spend as much time with us as they could and they also wanted to down size. So they are moving to a senior apartment complex in my hometown and I could not be more excited. They will be rolling into town tomorrow afternoon and we will spend all day moving them in and getting them set up. It has been raining the last two days, so I hope the skies clear. If not, it would still be worth it!

How awesome for you and your family, and how lucky you are to still have your grandparents around. My last living grandparent, my maternal grandmother, died in April of 1989, about a year before I met my husband. I always wish she could have known her great grandchildren. She loved little girls. Have a wonderful time, and enjoy every moment with them!

That is wonderful that you still have 2 grandparents living. I only have my grandma, but she sounds like yours - living on her own and full of energy. It's great they are moving closer. I hope the move went well.
