What a beautiful portrait you managed to capture. The smile on their faces is natural and contagious.
The kid looks a tiny bit out of focus (understandable, shooting at f/5.6), but in this case I think it is not necessarily a problem, as in this way the old woman, with her traditional clothes, gets even more to the center of attention.
The B&W is also a good choice, although I would try experimenting with a bit of sepia tones :)

Really heartwarming portraiture, Ryno - the joy on both their faces is infectious. Nice DOF - I agree with Alberto that the grandson's slight blur actually adds to the image, it doesn't detract. It would be interesting to see a color version here as well, especially to get a sense of the shawl she is wearing, but B&W is a good choice for this one.
