[side note] My sister broke one open and had me smell it.. We both looked at each other and were instantaneously reminded our our very first home growing up (our neighbor had a grape vine in their yard and we picked the grapes and ate them all the time). It made us smile! ...
So we all tasted the grapes and decided that we should make some grape juice! So.. that's what we did. First the kids went and picked a bunch
then we put them in a bowl and smashed them up,
then heated them to a boil,
added some sugar and water and sifted it though a filter,
then added some ice
and drank it, it was pretty tasty. Nolan, bless his heart overheard me say "isn't this how you make wine".. he wanted to make sure he wasn't going to be drinking wine. It was such a fun little memory that I know my nieces and nephews will talk about forever.. And probably want to do every time they come over! ;) I would love for them, when they get older to say, We made grape juice at my aunts all the time! I just can't wait to get all settled in and enjoy sitting around with Nate and watching Abe grow up here. I am going to take some pictures of the house when things all get put away and show you all. So fun! Check back soon.
