They directed my attention to going out to check on the watermelon. Our watermelons did GREAT to a certain point - they grew to about 3-3 1/2" in diameter and pretty much quit.... have just stayed the same, so we have given up on them, but left the vine..... So I looked.....
Then I noticed it.... it was certainly out of place.....
Here you can see the two little melons on the vine... poor little things... and then there is the great big melon.... :)
They cleaned the debris up from the garden bed... and we laughed again. I hadn't even noticed them planning this.
They were pleased to surprise me and it was so nice to have fun together.... and we all laughed at the thought of a big melon like that coming from that spindly little vine. Maybe someday we will have big melons... but not this year.
It was such a little thing... and took very little time .... and yet those fun little moments help to bind us together with shared memories and laughter. I am so thankful for my family..... what a blessing they are to me.... and I want to be a blessing to them.
Thank you for visiting... I hope you have a great day. :)
