spillin' the beans

Last month, when we went back to the States we stayed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.   The kids and I were with Papa Tot and Memaw (Prince Charming's parents).  Next door lives John Truman's, 1, favorite person.  Great-Grandma Dorlis.  Over the five weeks we stayed there she was his favorite playmate.  Nearly every morning he woke up and his first thought was to take Maw Maw her paper.
 He wanted to stay with her many mornings and afternoons.
She spoiled him but he loved it.
John was carrying the bucket for Maw Maw as she was picking peas.
 She was showing them how to open the peas.
  John kept tasting the peas and then spitting them out on the ground.
Today, I received an email with this picture.
  John's peas had taken root and grown under Maw Maw's swing.
  Sweet reminder of those special weeks.
