Last year, we surprised Grandma with our first visit in three years, and she was just as excited to see us pull up again this year.  We found her picking peas in the garden, and it was a joy to see her in her element.  She had just been released from the hospital days before (and ended up back there two days later), but when we saw her, she was just the same old Grandma she's always been!
Clayton is still talking about "sneaking up on Grandma" since she wasn't expecting us.  He wants us to tell the story over and over and we can't forget about Grandma's hat!  (He always loves a story that includes a hat!)
Jackson was mostly concerned about getting a hold of her cane.  He spent the whole time trying to take it away from her!  How do you explain to a one year old that your near 92 year old Great-Grandma's cane isn't a toy, but her support when walking?!

 He was briefly distracted by the bucket of peas, but it didn't last long. 
 He was back to the cane in no time.

These are truly priceless pictures, and I hope you'll send prints to Mama. She loves you all so dearly and tries to always know how everyone's doing. So glad you were able to visit with her.

OH Ashley... these pictures are priceless. I always wished that I'd have had a grandma growing up. How wonderful for your boys!!

Maybe Jackson's just that amused with his great-grandma's cane? Or he just wanted to be the one assisting her grandma? They do look very adorable together on these pics. She didn't mind at all, did she?
