Facebook commenters, many agreed that the refreshing, relatable series of pictures made for “the most adorable photo session ever.”

“I love that your parents have a great sense of humor, and the kind of relationship that honors that they are entering a new time in their journey as a couple,” one fan wrote.

“Love it! Always heard that teenagers are a bit difficult at times and that is God’s way of making their leaving home easier for the parents!” another laughed.



“Empty nest hit me hard – honestly still does, my husband not so much! But, we did something similar and were very happy once our youngest turned 20 – we celebrated ‘surviving teenagers’” another agreed.

“Wish I thought of this when we became empty nesters! We love our kids, but it’s so nice to see them now with their own kids. Plus we get to play grandparents which is a blast,” one user chimed in.
