What He Found In His Grandparents’ House Sent Him On A Journey Back In Time

There are endless treasures to be found in our grandparents’ attics. While digging through these family heirlooms and artifacts, we’re lucky if we come across a few tattered photos from the war, or a chipped teacup from an old collection. Although substantial finds may be few and far between, these relics help us piece together the stories of our lives.

But one man hit the jackpot one day while rummaging through his grandparents’ things. What he discovered sent him on a stunning journey back in time.

He found a perfectly preserved film of his grandparents’ wedding that dates back to 1944.

Although this footage was captured decades ago, the affection shown by these two lovebirds is timeless.

Grandparents are often viewed as the pillars of the family. They’re seen as sage, wizened monuments to everything that younger generations stand for. It’s rare that we get to peek behind the curtain and marvel at who they were before we were born, and now that this man has stepped back in time, he will be able to move forward with a whole new perspective on who he is and where he came from.

When This Little Boy Thought He Was Getting In Trouble, He Froze With Fear

Remember that terrifying feeling of being in trouble when you were a kid? That was the scariest thing of all, because letting Mom and Dad down (and getting caught) was completely awful.

But when this little boy gets in trouble, he doesn’t contest it. He just freezes in fear, and it’s super adorable. Even Mom can’t help but giggle!

I hope this boy doesn’t get in trouble too often, otherwise he could be frozen for a long time! That wouldn’t be good for anyone.

Take Time To Slow Down And Appreciate Your Loved Ones This Mother’s Day

Kids grow up way too fast.

And Nichole Nordeman knows just that. Her song “Slow Down” reminds us that we should appreciate the good things and people in our lives before it’s too late. We might not even notice when things pass us by…

Mothers, fathers, and children alike will need to get tissues for this one.

(via For Every Mom)

This Mother’s Day, take time to remember your mother, show appreciation to other mothers, and just appreciate those you love in your life.

They Hooked Grandpa Up To A Virtual-Reality Headset And Hilarity Ensued

If you’ve ever used a virtual-reality headset or watched someone else use one, you probably know that things get real crazy real quick.

I was actually pretty blown away by how immersive the experience was….which caused me to forget that to the outside world, I still looked like a crazy person with a headset on. This grandpa knows a thing or two about that, but he was so caught up in the moment that he truly didn’t give a damn.

He really committed to this experience.


Watch his entire campaign against zombies in the video below.

Honestly, the next time I use a virtual-reality headset, I’m going to channel this guy and throw my inhibitions to the wind. Life’s more fun that way.

The Father-Daughter Dance Was About To Begin, But This Dad Had A Surprise In Store

A pivotal moment at any wedding reception is the father-daughter dance. It’s a deeply touching homage to the love that dads have for their daughters, and it makes people feel emotional almost every time.

But this dad had a surprise for his daughter before they stepped out onto the floor. Not only would they be taking part in an awesome father-daughter dance, but they’d be dancing to a song that he wrote for her. By the time it was over, everyone was in tears.

What a beautiful thing for a dad to do for his little girl. We wish the happy couple well in their marriage, and if they share a love even half as powerful as the bond that exists between the bride and her father, they will be just fine.

If You Told Me A Commercial Could Make Me Cry, I Wouldn’t Have Believed You. Until Now… Wow

Today’s modern technology has the power to do amazing things. In an instant, we can have a black town car show up at our house, video chat with a friend half way around the world, and even fly a remote controlled plane into a different country. But what it can’t do, and the one thing we always forget, is love. Especially the real life kind between a parent and child. So if you’ve ever used an iPad to calm down a screaming child in a restaurant, check out this video below. It just might make your life a little better. Like the song says, “All we need is love.” 🙂

She Was Trapped And Starving, But Watch What Happened When They Showed Up

When brothers Dan and Bret Friend traveled to Payette National Forest in Idaho for a family reunion, they were excited to visit a secret cave they thought nobody else knew about.

But when they arrived, something didn’t feel right. As they approached the entrance of the cave, they heard whimpering sounds and quickly realized that there was a dog trapped at the bottom. They knew they had to do something to help, so the heroes gathered their family members together and sprung into action.

I’m so glad they showed up when they did.

Tinker the hound was being trained to hunt bears when she fell into the hole, making it impossible for her trainer to find her. The poor thing had been trapped down there for two weeks and was starving, only surviving by licking up the condensation that formed on the cave’s walls.

This is amazing.

After being reunited with her grateful owner, Tinker got a nice steak dinner and enjoyed every single bite. I bet you never thought you’d be thankful for a family reunion, huh?
