Melon boats

Melon boat
Sometimes my  kids make me feel like a creative genius. Take today for example; it was hot out and everyone was just a little bit tired and slowly getting to cranky. Mama served up this simple summer treat of cantaloup "boats" with spoons to dig your way through ’em. They thought this was a grand idea and got to work right away.

Only thing is these melons are way bigger than the ones my grandmother would give me when I visited her in Brittany as a child and the kids could barely get more than half-way through ’em.

Quick quote:
"Today is the best day ever; no one’s yelled at me or anything!"

Not ten minutes later we discover his new bike had been stolen. So much for having a great day… grrr.
