an ode to watermelon.

there's not much in this world that elijah likes to eat more than watermelon. grapes may be a close second but i'm pretty positive that watermelon holds the top spot. and here's some proof.

it's funny because i don't really buy watermelon that much. or i didn't used to anyways. it's not that i don't like it, i do, it's just that i didn't really want to deal with the mess that comes along with it...or the hassle of trying to find a good one. but i have a few watermelon plants in the backyard and though the majority of the watermelons never make it to maturity (not sure why...working on figuring that out for next year), we have had a few good ones. the watermelon in the pictures above was one from our garden that survived to share its ruby goodness with us. and man, it was good. perfect on a sweltering summer day.

Mmmmm... E makes that watermelon looks so yummy even I want a bite! And I don't really care for watermelons all that much.

My favorite picture is the one where he's digging his face into the rind trying to bite off as much juicy redness as he can. I love it!
