Happy Grandparents Day!

Featured Author: Contra Costa Living Blog Team

Each year, we celebrate Grandparents Day on the first Sunday following Labor Day. This year, Grandparents Day will be celebrated on the 7th of September. On this special day, it is important that you remind those older in age around you how much they truly mean to you.

Many people fail to take advantage of their grandparent’s wisdom. On this day especially, ask your grandparents for advice. They have plenty of years of experience under their belt and may provide you with advice that finally makes sense!

While you should be showing your appreciation on a daily basis, on Grandparents Day especially, be sure to plan a day that will show your grandparents exactly how much they mean to you! You may want to consider making an entire day of it! Plan a family barbecue or day at the beach where everyone in your family attends, no excuses! Your grandparents will love seeing the multiple generations of family members laughing and enjoying each other on this special day!

Now is also a great time to take out the family albums! You may not realize it, but yours and your parent’s milestones are likely some of your grandparent’s favorite memories. They will love seeing pictures of your parents when they were young and your age, reminiscing on the years that have passed.

We would not be here today if it were not for our grandparents. Take a moment to give them a big hug and kiss and thank them for everything that they do. Let this be a reminder to show your appreciation for their commitment to the family a little more than once a year!
