Thankful for U-Pick Orange Groves!

i just finished some of the fun packing/getting ready for a big trip stuff and was so thirsty!    i had finished off my sweet tea this afternoon, and it's too late for a soda (kind of) i thought of the oranges in the bottom of the fridge....  so i hand squeezed two of them for a glass of fresh (and refreshing) orange juice! 

so what does that have to do with u-pick orange groves?  as we drove home from tampa a few weeks ago, we noticed "u-pick" orange grove signs along the interstate, and decided to stop!   it was wyatt and tim's first time picking oranges; my mom and i have taken ethan and forrest orange picking a few times on our many trips to walt disney world together!  

it was a beautiful day in the orange grove, and we had the grove all to ourselves!  we were able to pick delicious naval oranges, tangerines and grapefruit!   we made some wonderful memories that day....
