Well with my Mom's parents I would love to go berry picking or go fishing with them. There was even times my grandmother let me stay up late with her and watch TV.

As for my Dad's parents, I only got to see my grandmother. My grandfather passed away before I was even born. Though I use to play with my grandmother's couch cushions by piling them up, jumping on them and tumbling over. I also use to help her with her word search puzzles. Those are my best memories with my grandparents.

I spent a lot of time with my grandparents on my mother's side, actually lived with them off and on. My favorite memory with my grandfather was all the times we would go driving in his '56 Bel Air listening to old music. With my grandmother we used to play a lot of board games, and she was always reading to me.

On my Dad's side, they had a camp on the lake and I spent a lot of time there with them over the summer.

I only got to know my mom's parents and we were very close. I saw them at least once a week and lived with them all summer while my parents worked. They lived on a full working farm and were a little on the old fashioned side but I loved it.

My grandma used a ringer washer and hung her laundry until the day she moved off the farm and cooked full meat and potato meals complete with a hot dessert every day. As a kid I loved following her around and learning to cook, bake and garden. Even after I was married I would call her at the nursing home with all my cooking or baking questions and she would talk me through it. Whenever mom or I were planting in the garden we'd go get her and park her wheelchair near the garden so she could help point out what grew well next to each other for a great garden each year.

My grandpa was always in the fields or with the horse. He let me follow him around a bit when I got older and taught me to drive a tractor, plow the fields and fix a combine. He always bought me treats when they went to "town" for groceries and since they didn't have TV he would put records on the big old record player to entertain me.

Man I miss those two.

I remember my Grandpa's rough voice and him sitting in his lazy boy. I remember his shoes and him and my Mum always cleaning up together after family get-together meals.
