National Grandparents Day -- coming up on Sunday, Sept. 13 -- is the perfect time to showcase the precious bond grandparents enjoy with their grandchildren.
We asked you to tell us about your own grandparents -- and your own grandchildren -- and we were inundated with lovely stories. On Wednesday, we published our tribute to grandparents and, today, it's the grandkids' turn.
Check out these 19 gorgeous photos -- as well as many more included in the slideshow below. What beautiful families!
Happy Grandparents Day everyone!
Ethan "We are long-distance grandparents. We are from California, but now we live in Costa Rica. When we left California eight years ago, we had no grandchild. This made life easer, for sure. Things have changed, as things do, and now with our grandson Ethan, we have a nagging feeling of, do we stay or do we go. So far we have stayed in Costa Rica, with more visits to California. I think I want Ethan to know that we wanted an adventure. We wanted something different in our lives, and we went for it. I want him to be curious and excited about new and different things and places. I believe he will see us as different and fun. We love our life. It's like a fountain of youth. If we don't look in the mirror, that is." -- Debra Hogue
