Orange Is Orange

A few months ago, if you asked Hikaru what color is an orange, he would have said "green". But he knows that things can change. When the oranges are "orange", that means that our Satsuma oranges ("mikan") are ready to eat!

In this photo, Hikaru shows off the very first oranges that were picked from the tree this season. These are "dwarf" orange trees, so they are at Hikaru's level.

Hikaru helped Daddy to pick them off the tree. He's also been helping to water the tree over the summer. We picked 17 oranges off the tree today.

And of course, happiness is eating a freshly picked orange for breakfast.

As Hikaru would say, "yummy, yummy!" Oranges are one of his favorite foods.

Maiya LOVEs tangerines. They pick them at Tony's uncle's house. If she had her way, she'd eat about 20 a day, but it makes her face all red so we have to limit it to 2 per meal. She loves peeling them and will have a fit if we peel them for her.
