Grandma's birthday bike and GRAND Social No. 111 link party

Grandma's birthday bike

As one of seven children, it's not too hard to understand why I never received a bike as a birthday gift as a kid. Last Friday, though, was my (ahem) 50th birthday, and I finally — unexpectedly! — experienced the all-out joy of a such a gift.

What a thrill! The seat needed to be raised and I have yet to get a helmet, but boy, oh, boy, I just had to take it for a spin right away. There's nothing like a brand-new birthday bike to make this grandma feel younger than ever — despite the milestone birthday. Thank you, Brianna, Andrea and Jim. ♥

GRAND Social No. 111

Yay for yet another GRAND Social link party for grandparents! Thank you for sharing links and for reading links. Enjoy!

link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
