Jonagold Baby

Squeak my have her new favorite orange, but I've got my new favorite apple ... the Jonagold!! Jonagold is a cultivar of apple, a cross between Golden Delicious and Jonathan. They form a large sweet fruit with a thin skin. It has the tart-sweetness of the Jonathan and juicy, crispness in texture of the Goldens. Noted for its large size, beauty and flavor, the Jonagold is a taste test winner. However because of their large size they are not now favoured by commercial growers in many parts of the world. Try one today!!

Rook's Boo Boo Band-Aid

Rook had a boo boo on his knee from playing basketball (or at least that's what he tells us). I gave him a hard time, and told him he needed a Winnie the Pooh Band-Aid, and he said NO!! Actually, it was more like HELL NO!! I asked him if Abbie gave him one of her boo boo Band-Aids, as she likes to call it, would he wear it?? He said yes, and as you can see from the picture, he held up his end of the deal. You're a good man Rook!!

Katie's First Carousel Ride

Here is Katie's first ever carousel ride. It happened down at Coolidge Park in Chattanooga (we went there for the weekend). It appears she's having fun. If she's anything like her sister, she'll grow to love the Carousel ... Abbie rode it four times!!!
