Nothing compares to the love of Pappou and Yiayia, and beautiful images of this proud grandfather and grandmother confirm the famous saying, “Your grandchildren are your children twice over.”
The overjoyed Pappou and Yiayia carried their chairs along with them to the heart of Syntagma and sat directly across from their grandson, who is currently serving as an Evzones, and watched him for an entire hour in awe as he performed his duties as a Presidential Guard.
Afterward, they stood next to the Evzones and took a photo with their grandson, which speaks a thousand words.
Ο παππούς και η γιαγιά τού Εύζωνος κάθισαν απέναντί του καθ' όλη την διάρκεια της υπηρεσίας του (1 ώρα), για να τον καμαρώσουν…
Να είστε πάντα γέροι και υπερήφανοι για το παλικάρι σας, αλλά και για εσάς που μεγαλώσατε άξια παιδιά και εγγόνια. pic.twitter.com/gXw4TXkwXQ
