What's your fondest memory of your grandparents?
Having lived with my grandparents since the very beginning, there are uncountable memories. I'll write a few here. I and my grandparents will together feed our pet 'Sweety'. It will always wag it's tail and inform my grandparents that I'm coming back from school. My grandmother is an excellent cook and would always prepare special dishes for me. The joy on my grandparents' face when I win a competition or top in class is inexplicable in words. My grandparents are the life of the family.
