the apple of my eye

Urumqi (despite its remote location) is pretty well known for having good fruit. This apple is probably the biggest one I have ever seen, weighing in at 1 pound, costing roughly 45 cents. When Asia saw it she exclaimed, "Look at that MASSIVE apple!" I bought it to show Ali and the girls, and it took all five of us to eat it. It was full of juicy sweetness and quite tasty.

On another exciting note, my best friend Nathan will be a father very soon...please be thinking of their little family! We can't wait to meet the apple of their eye too!

p.s. Sophia Esther was born in Minnesota on October 12th at 7:30pm, weighing 9lb 4oz with dark hair & eyes, to Nathan & Elle Doan!! Yippee!!
