Watermelon Party!




This summer has been crazy...packing, unpacking. What a mess! I squeezed in a watermelon party...
Watermelon drink...Just watermelon, ice and water...





Watermelon treats...




Teddy wanted some....


Skewers...Brown rice and and coconut sauce.


You see him clean...


Not anymore...



Mommy tell him not to wipe his mouth on my shirt...


We had a cake from Target store...Less work for me...



The kids had fun!

How fun.
I cut and froze a couple of watermellons just for something like this...or to make fruit smoothies with.

I love watermelon so much, I just sent my best friend an email with a recipe for watermelon jam, because her daughter is always asking if it would be possible to make a watermelon pie, that tastes like real watermelon not a jolly rancher. I think we may have found an answer! So who knows, me may have to give it a try before the end of the summer.

Oh and I finally put up a new post on the wedding blog! Talking about my wedding dress making adventure :)
