Happy National Grandparents Day!
Established in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter, Grandparents Day is a day when we honor the contributions of the wonderful people who raised the people who raised us. Not everyone has the same relationship with their grandparents. Maybe they spoiled you, maybe they mentored you, or maybe they brought you up altogether.
Whatever they taught you, wherever they may have guided you, however much you wish to someday be as awesome as they are, take the time to look at these photos and realize you probably never will be. In fact, they're probably flipping you off and throwing back shots of whiskey as you read this.
Skating to the party.
Staying up all night long.
He gets it.
She'll bring the music of course.

Even in a suit he could probably beat you in one-on-one.

Knows the secret hand signal.

Sometimes it doesn't take much to be awesome.
Just be up for playing some video games.
Or do this.
But you can always go the full distance and take a shot with a frat.
Smoking weed with her is legal in a few states now.
This is perfect.
And this is just too much.
Sometimes it's just a tattoo & whiskey day.
Join her on a surfin' safari.
Photobombs get better with age.
Well he's definitely down to party.
And so is he.
She'll be mad if the party gets shut down.
A chill partier.
Another Sk8er dude.

He knows how to rave.
While he really knows how to dance.
A badass even in death.
She'll only let cool people into her magical weed forest.
Really the greatest partier that ever lived.
A great party trick.
Who knows where he's going to end up.

But of course the best parties involve kittens and happen in 3D
