I bought myself a steam juicer with my birthday money this year. I can't wait to make fresh apple juice! When I was growing up my dad made grape juice with the grapes from our garden, and it was always something special to share with guests when they came over. Last Fall I really wanted to make apple juice for Christmas presents, but couldn't figure out how to do it without a juicer; so...I bought one. I'm counting down the days until berry picking season!
I just had to throw in this photo of Oakley because he's grown so much! He's almost doubled his weight in three months. Yes, he's heavy. Yes, my back hurts. And yes, those legs make it all worth it!

The fact that you have only forgotten to strap Oakley in after taking him out once qualifies you for mother of the year! I do that probably twice a week! I feel your pain about the wet pants. Els can't seem to get off her lazy bum to go to the toilet. AHHHHHHH!

There is a really great vineyard in the payette area that is open to the public for picking and is only $5 a bushel. They are the best tasting grapes and are really easy to pick! Let me know if you want their info and I can get it to you!
