On Saturday, we headed over to Grammy and Pop's to eat lunch, nap, and then have Father's Day dinner. After we ate lunch, Matt started cutting up some fruit for his grandmother (MeeMee), and it kind of turned into a mini-project. He tried making a bowl out of the watermelon for the first time, and it actually turned out pretty good!
First up: pineapple
LL is definitely a fan!
Next up: watermelon
Matt just laid down the first quarter of the watermelon that he sliced, and this is what happened. :)
She was a big helper!
Matt and his creation
The finished product - all hollowed out:
This was the only thing I contributed to the whole operation (other than taking pictures, of course): decorative edging
Pop and LL
LL and Grammy (can anyone guess the significance of the woman on the TV screen behind LL? Anyone? She played Lorelai Gilmore in "Gilmore Girls". I don't think we've ever see that show....)
I know how you feel about the holidays, we live about 5 hours from our hometown and when we go it is never ending going from one family to another. Don't get me wrong we love seeing everyone but it is always so exhausting and hectic. This past christmas I made a rule that Riley will wake up to have christmas morning in our house and although the families weren't happy about it they understood! As for all the other holidays we just take them as they come!
The watermelon basket is cute!!!
