Five grandchildren of a Pennsylvania couple, Ronald and Linda George, showed up at their door for what will become a special family night. It had been 20 years since the elderly couple had all the grandkids over, and the surprise visit left them both dumbfounded.

One of the grandchildren, Amber Hauck, told Fox News Digital that the idea was a joke they shared until Linda had a health scare that worried them so much. “We picked a date and made sure we were all good to go,” she said.

Linda was initially worried about her 11 great-grandchildren, as their parents, between the ages of 26 and 32, were at her house for the night. She was also bothered about where the five cousins would sleep, but some did not mind lying on the floor. “It was just one night,” Amber said.

They had a charcuterie board laid out, delicious pizza, and their grandpa’s favorite wine. They planned to watch a movie but got so involved with a dominos game that they forgot about it. For Linda, the most memorable part of the sleepover was the game and “sitting around the table eating a hearty breakfast talking and laughing about sleepovers when they were little.”

Grandpa Ronald brought back nostalgia by making breakfast— something he used to do when the cousins were younger. “We were up at 5:45 a.m. pretending to sleep while he was cooking,” Amber recalled. A video from the sleepover went viral on Instagram with over 130,000 likes and many comments from people inspired to do the same.
