Finally...Watermelon!

Watermelon is a beloved treat in this family. All 5 of my kids adore this fruit. However, melons are pretty expensive here...especially when it takes so much of our American dollars to get a Euro. Anyway...I splurged yesterday and bought a tiny melon. Just enough for us all to have one small slice. It was about the size of a softball on steroids...

Boys....got to love 'em.

I know..he needs a haircut.

Faith is always wherever my camera is.

Notice the grass.

That grossed daddy out, so he washed it off for him.

Much better.

Nothing speaks summer like a watermelon. Hey guess what I have sitting on my counter? A huge melon, we're gonna cut it today, hopefully it's good because we wait until the price goes down too. It's 2.99 kuna per kilo now so that's not too bad.
Your little Justice is way too cute!!

Thats Mimi's boy! The one watermelon I bought this summer was not good. Maybe Tim will bring me one when they get ready for picking and I will think of Brooklyn sitting on the driveway last summer. (riding the 4-wheeler and eating watermelon)
Love you!! Mom

Trin and Justice are getting so big! They really need a hug from their Nanny. Thank you so much for the pictures and comments. I almost feel like I am with you.

The kids are adorable! I don't think my kids have had watermelon. They are so picky! I guess we need to venture out more. Love you guys!

Justice is so cute. I love your kids' names. Living in America, we forget that the whole world isn't like here. It's good to read your blog and give me perspective as to just how tiny the United States is in relation to the world. Thanks.

Your kids are adoreable! What a lovely family you have. I've enjoyed looking around your blog and will be back!

HOPE said...

Your family is precious...can't imagine a watermellon that size! I will sure be thinking of you next time I get a bigg'n.

I did not know that your husband was a Pastor and then called to the field! I'm sure the LORD has a mighty work for you there.

God bless your desires and work on the field.

Hope...
I have a second blog now..This is the day...
