Groovy Grandparents

Having grandparents is one thing, having the funnest grandparents ever is quite another.
Jake and his three sisters along with Jake's one cousin are very lucky to have a set of grandparents who have a great sense of humor and love to shock the grand kids by doing unthinkably fun things.
One recent story is this past Christmas when my family and my sisters family decided to go in together on a gift for them and buy them a Wii gaming system, we thought this will be a fun thing for them to do during the winter to get some exercise.  We knew that our kids would also enjoy it when they went over to spend the night because of the games on there.  On Christmas day the grand kids hooked the system up for them and showed their grandpa how to play the bowling game, they played two times that day.
What the grand kids did not expect is what would happen next...
The very next time they went over to spend the night at grandpa and grandma's house they were all excited that they would be able to beat grandpa again on the Wii, well things did not go exactly as planned that night...
When I returned to pick Jake and his little sister up they had quite a good story for me on the ride home.  Apparently, grandpa had been spending his evenings (since it was winter and he could not get out to garden) on the Wii bowling game and had figured out exactly where to throw the ball to get a strike each time.  The kids were just blown away by how good grandpa was and that he could just crush THEM on a video game.  The grandparents definitely earned a lot of "cool groovy grandparent" points that weekend!

The lesson Jake learned that weekend was don't ever count any opponent out just because of their age, everyone is as young as they feel!!
