Well - they were good sports about it and we got a lot done.. not just unloading the container but I got a new refrigerator delivered, and all the oranges picked and the toilet replaced and the ATV going!
My son Nick and his girlfriend Jessie came up, and my niece and nephew spent the night on Friday as well. So Saturday I woke up to a full house and since the youngest kid Laine was up with me I sent her out to pick oranges to squeeze for juice. She loved it! And when her big brother got up he wanted in on the action too! They are both very competitive so it was my role to referee to make sure one or the other didn't get any more time picking or juicing. They picked every orange on my tree and that had to be about 100 of them that were left. It was great! The only danger is that the trees are blooming right now and I asked them to be gentle and not to knock off the blossoms but not sure that happened. They do everything with enthusiasm!
