Now we are just waiting for our avocados to ripen so that we can use some of these lemons and make some guacamole!

By the way, the persimmons (our neighbor’s tree) are also ripe. Anybody have a good recipe for them?

    Geez, you people in southern Cali really like to rub it in that it is cold up here in the north country, don’t you?? 😉 I am envious!

    Yummy! It makes me want lemonade! But I’m settling for wine, which is sort of the same since it comes from grapes…right?

    Great pictures too – your girls are adorable!
