14 Grandparents That Defy Age Stereotypes and Prove You Can Never Be Too Old to Have Fun

2 years ago

Many grandparents know that age is just a number. So even though we still associate the elderly with that image of an old person sitting down and looking tired or devoting their time to taking care of their grandkids, this stage has actually become more dynamic and fun. These “youngsters” enjoy the day-to-day, go through unique experiences, and seek new ones. And more often than not, they also like making mischief.

Bright Side wants to share some pics of clever and witty ideas that these grandparents had. We bet they’ll put a big smile on your face.

1. “Grandpa holding the grandkids, and grandpa holding the kids holding the grandkids!”

2. “My great-grandpa always showing off and acting like a kid makes me smile.”

3. “Grandma asked me to take this picture to show how well she’s doing at 90. Look at that pose.”

4. “My grandpa eating a sweet strawberry”

6. “My grandma, the one who didn’t want a dog”

7. “It’s my great-grandma’s ninetieth birthday! All she wanted was a ride to church on the motorcycle.”

Number 3 is my grandma! I was just scrolling here and saw her! She's gonna be so happy to see this. Sadly, she fell a couple months ago and broke her hip, so she can't really walk anymore but her spirit is intact.
