One of the most requested events before going to California was "picking oranges". Not even my stories of heavy picking bags in the rain with ants crawling up my arms deterred them. Sadly my parents mandarins were all done by the time we got there, but a friend offered his navel trees for the experience. Thank you!
They really did all have a good time, Levi's just upset Mom stopped all the fun of picking by trying to take a group picture.
"Making messes is what Shaunas do best" my sisters used to sing when I still lived at home in California. Now that I'm living in Canada with my marvelous man and delightful daughters, my husband joins in the chorus. I love to learn and create. Sadly, many of the things I do involve messes and cleaning isn't my strong point! I started this blog as a way to keep far away family involved in our every day lives, but you're invited to join us if you don't mind the mess!
