Summer is my favorite time of year for many reasons. Just thinking about all the stuff I can do makes me smile. The beach , scuba diving, vacations are all great, but I think one of my most favorite things to do in the summer is to buy all the fresh fruit I can get my hands on. Peaches, nectarines, honeydew and watermelon are the best on a warm summer day. It is especially cool to see Zac experience this all for the first time too.
We’re always trying to get him to eat new foods, because, let’s face it – kids are picky. I had given him a few bites of watermelon before, but he didn’t really know what to do with it. This time I left the rhine on and just gave him a piece. Not only did he eat it all, he loved it. Piece after piece, he let all the juice dribble down his tummy. We both sat on the balcony and watched the cars and people go by as we enjoyed one of the many pleasures of summer.
