4th of July Watermelon!

Happy Saturday!  Hoping you all had a fun 4th of July!  We spent the afternoon at our friend's house for a BBQ and old fashioned games for the kids (and adults).  We had an egg toss, sack race, pie eating contest, bobbing for apples.  Most games were for the kids, but yours truly (and her teammate Amy) won the egg toss!

I wanted to show you the watermelon I carved and brought over to the BBQ.   I found the idea HERE and although it isn't quite up to my anal-retentive standards (I ran out of carving time) - it still ended up 'pretty' good:



I might have to re-try this again next year with more planning.  I really like the original melon on the link above. She's got a lot more stars and cut out the center 'stripe' so you can see the red of the watermelon.

If you don't remember the melon I carved last year - here it is again:

Have a great Saturday!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!
