Is there anything that says Summer more than a cool slice of watermelon? This entire platter of melon was devoured last night by our family and a family with five boys. Gone. Every. Last. Slice.
I am a sucker for a little kid’s face buried in a slice of watermelon. When ever Owlie asks for melon, I can’t bear to say no! The chance to see his freckles poking out behind a pink and green wedge, juice running down his chin – it’s just too good to pass up.
The champion melon eater at our house is Big C. He ate six slices last night! I wonder if he felt sloshy afterwards. That kid would sit down with half a melon and just scoop it out with a spoon if I’d led him.
Our summer continues to be too busy to believe. We haven’t even sat down yet to write out our Summer list. And now June is gone. We are behind for sure. July is going to fly by unbelievably fast. Big C. will be gone for three weeks of it! Personally, I’m counting on August to be the Summer month of my dreams.
How about you? Does your summer seem crazier than normal? Do you need to sit down with a slice of melon and just chill?
