29 Sweetest Instagram Captions For National Grandparents Day

There's something special about grandparents. They're a unique kind of family; so loving, caring, and patient that you don't know what you would have done without them in your life. National Grandparents Day is this week — Sunday, September 10 — aka, a full day to shower your grandparents with the same love they've shown you since you came into this world. Whether they're on Instagram or not, sometimes, it's nice to commemorate with a few Instagram captions for National Grandparents Day, and then show them your sweet post later, of course.

National Grandparents Day was created by Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade. She wanted the day to be a celebration of family and the importance that grandparents are to a thriving, loving family. In 1979, President Jimmy Carter signed into law a declaration that the Sunday following Labor Day would be National Grandparents Day… and here we are.

This Grandparents Day, make sure to spend some time with your grandparents if you're still lucky enough to have them in your life. Chances are, they love and think about you more than you know. Life is short; appreciate them while you can. And while you're at, send them a card and post an Instagram snap with one of these 29 captions.
