Pea Time!

It's that time of year again! Growing up we waited anxiously each Spring for all the new peas to grow big enough to be devoured. Fresh peas from the garden is one of my favorite things. Along with the good taste, they bring back so many memories. One particular memory involves Autumn and Pom Pom. Autumn and I had a great idea to pick all the peas and see how many we could fit in our mouths at once. Lets just say that Pom Pom wasn't too happy and we received the famous crooked finger shake...

And now I get to share one of my favorite things with my kids. My mom is one of the best gardeners around and she has so many peas right now. We go down to visit, pick peas, and play. All the kids love them, except for Aiden of course.

I love that my mom was saying 'cheese' too. She really is just like one of the kids!

Aiden kept himself busy with other things.

So, if we aren't home when you call or stop by, we might just be at Grandma Holly's picking peas and having fun. Next up fresh raspberries!!!

Soon to come, a St George post. I am just waiting for a certain someone to email me some pictures. You know who you are...

I love peas and I love to garden, I hope that our garden doesn't get eaten by the deer. I may have to come still some from you! Can't wait for the St. George post and the picture of you 'going down the slide!!'

Looks good...I would love a garden but I don't want the work. Looks like you got the perfect set up. The pic. with your parents house in the background brought back a lot of memories.

Love fresh peas from the garden, but more than that, love the great memories!! Summer childhood memories are my favorite!!

BTW I've seen that pic of you and the others on the waterslide!! Best one I've seen in a dang long time! Glad you had fun!

I miss fresh produce from the garden more than just about anything. West Texas is pretty desolate and I'm certain most things wither up and die here. :)

I'm guessing that certain someone is probably Brooke since she seems to be the one who always ends up with all the pics on her camera. I can't wait for the SG post!

Just today I stopped by a fresh produce stand that was on the side of road. I picked up some fresh corn and now I'm kicking myself for not getting some peas while I was there. They look SO good. And I'm with you, fresh peas are as good as it gets!

Yum! I love fresh peas from the garden. Your kids are darling. I am impressed that they like the fresh peas. They are all such good lil' eaters. Well except for Aiden, I wonder where he gets his picky eating habits? :)
