The Glenns

While visiting the Glenn's for Oliver's 4th birthday, I had the opportunity to do a little photo shoot with them.  I'm very out of practice since I haven't been doing sessions for a while now.  We had fun.  And of course, I think I had the cutest subjects :)  For those who follow my blog but don't really know me, this is my daughter, son in law and our four grandchildren.

Here are a few more images from my short photo session with Eloise.  I know I'm probably prejudiced, but I think we have a mighty lovely new addition to the family!

The adorable knitted items are from my good friend April, at AprilsYarnables.

Eloise Marie

With three older siblings, it's a bit hard to squeeze in time for a newborn photo shoot.  But I was able to get a few of our sweet new Eloise today.  She is one week old today and has been super sleepy.  But today, she woke up!!  So I got very few images of her. Here is one of my favorites from today.

Peas and Memories....

I was so excited when I found out fresh peas would be in today's farm share.  There just isn't much better than peas straight from the garden.

I have never really enjoyed shelling peas.  It seems so tedious and time consuming.

Today, after I got home with my fresh garden goods, I knew the peas would have to be cooked tonight!

I even looked forward to shelling them.

As I sat outside enjoying the spring weather and shelling my fresh peas, I recalled years ago when I used to shell them.

I have fond memories of shelling peas with my grandpa.  Not that I loved the work, but he always made things fun.  It was just fun to be with him.

My grandpa loved gadgets.  One year he purchased a gadget that shelled peas!  It worked kind of like a ringer washer.  It didn't really work all that great but we had fun trying it together.

I was much slower today with getting my peas shelled.  It took me awhile to get back in the groove of it after all these years.  I might have finished the job much sooner if I wasn't eating them as I shelled them :)

I have to admit, I was a bit melancholy as I prepared these fresh peas tonight.  But I'm also thankful to have such sweet memories of sharing garden chores with my dear grandpa.  And, they were super yummy with our meal :)
