We often think that we’re cooler than our grandparents simply because, well, they’re old and we’re young. But that’s not the case! In fact, chances are our grandparents are actually way cooler than us. We can only aspire to reach that level of awesomeness.
And if you’re thinking, “pics or it didn’t happen,” we have 60 photos to prove it. These old photos of our grandmas and grandmas just go to show that they really were living their best lives way back when. See it for yourself.

“He was a man of many stories and an unforgettable sense of humor. After laying his wife and two sons to rest, he stayed strong and kept his spirit high. He battled prostate cancer for 20+ years and lived to see his 92nd birthday and his great grandchildren. RIP Grandpa.” If this is what crazy is, we’re pretty sure being crazy ain’t so bad!
