Last Friday my alarm clock sounded its presence at 3:15am. Granddad had taken the day off from work (as long as you consider checking and returning messages from his phone as "taking the day off").
He and I were taking the day to visit his parents & grandmother who live about 7 or so hours away. Yeah, I know ... that's probably setting a record for what's considered as a "day trip". But, it's been a while since we've been able to visit, so we headed out early that morning ...
And had a wonderful visit!
Here's the 3 generations -- Granddad, his Mom and his Mommaw.
Granddad & I cannot believe that Mommaw is 90 years young!

All of us -- courtesy of our camera timer.
Although the visit was short, we enjoyed it very much ... just wished we had more time to spend with them. We went out for a late lunch, then back to the house and reminisced through some old family pictures. I picked out "several" pictures to scan, and ended up bringing home hundreds for my spare time hobby.
(I have a really awesome idea that I am working on to implement mine and Granddad's childhood pictures. And I have bunches of pictures to start practicing on!)
Here's a few of "bonus" pictures of years ago ... Granddad, his parents & brother in their family bluegrass band. Music is a major aspect of his heritage, and through the years God has given Granddad the opportunity to use his heritage & gifts for His service.

I love family pictures & reminiscing ...
