Summer Jack-O-Lantern

This afternoon we got a phone call from a member of our bishopric. He was letting us know that a truck carrying a huge load of watermelon had rolled near Kanab. That is not an uncommon occurrence. But when it happens they have to claim perfectly good food a total loss. So all of us in Fredonia and Kanab get the fruits of their loss.

Leif's dad brought us a watermelon this evening and when Jakob saw it he asked if we were going to cut it and put the seeds in a bowl. I asked Leif what he thought Jakob meant, we realized that he wanted to carve it like a Jack-O-Lantern. So, that's exactly what we did! We dug all the fruit out and it's chilling in the fridge. Bet you can't guess what we're eating for breakfast lunch and dinner tomorrow.

We had a fun evening making our Summer Pumpkin. If it lasts through the heat of tomorrow we will probably put a citronella candle in it tomorrow night.
