Over the years my family has spread out across the country, following our individual careers and dreams. It’s different from when I was a kid. Back then a family gathering left little wiggle room in the house as all of the cousins, aunts, uncles, parents and grandparents would often gather for a meal consisting of Grandpa’s famous teriyaki wings and Grandma’s potato salad.
I know that it’s been difficult these last few years for my parents and grandparents to live so far away from some of their grandchildren. With all the many miles between us, technology and social media has allowed us to stay close. In recent months YesVideo has really helped to bridge the gap, and makes sharing special moments with Grandma and Grandpa so easy. Now that many of my family’s old video tapes have been transferred to DVD by YesVideo, it’s simple to sign into my online account and grab a share link to send to my Dad and Stepmom or to my Grandmother via email. This has proved invaluable since like many grandparents, they have not embraced Facebook.
The video snippet I shared here is one that I sent to my Dad in Florida last week via YesVideo and Hallmark Moments from the past. I love clips like this that show Grandma and Grandpa a glimpse of the grandkids doing what kids do best – just playing and having fun.
I know that Grandma Gail and Grandpa Hugh really appreciate getting the links to these videos and I love that YesVideo makes it so easy for me to share special moments with them.
