Picking Rays of Sunshine

And our "chilly" Florida vacation continues!

Yesterday we made the drive from our hotel to the opposite side of the peninsula to visit my grandparents. I cannot put into words how happy it made me to see them, and to be in their house, again. They have one last citrus fruit tree left (they used to have three) and one of the first things that we did when we arrived was to go out to pick some oranges. Jonah had a lot of fun! He thought the oranges were basketballs, or at least I'm assuming that is what he thought because he kept throwing them in the same manner that he throws his miniature basketball. We tried to show him that we smell the fruit, because boy did it smell heavenly! He didn't fully understand, but it was fun to see him try to mimic this action! He tried to help pick the fruit on the bottom, but it was extremely stubborn and didn't come off the tree easily.
