Freebie Friday - Watermelon

My fondest memories as a child is eating watermelon at our camp in Stonington, Michigan.  I always associate watermelon with Fourth of July because we always spent the Fourth at camp.  My aunt would cut giant, thick pieces so there was no way of escaping the sweet, sticky juices that dripped from the watermelon.  There were always 8-10 watermelons at camp for the Fourth, it seemed like everyone who stopped in to say hi, brought watermelon.  I always had a slice of watermelon in one hand and could catch frogs or fireflies with the other (my grandma would get so mad at me).  I can say from experience you can slide down a two story metal slide eating watermelon and land on your feet.  Of course eating watermelon would always lead to a watermelon seed spitting contest, I could hold my own against my older cousins.

Having my own children watermelon is a huge staple during the summer.  We can't leave the Farmer's Stand without one.  In honor of the Fourth and one of my family traditions here is some watermelon for y'all (and no it isn't as big as my aunt would cut them.)

Freebie Friday - Iced Tea

Growing up in Michigan we would drink hot tea during the winter and sun tea (no sugar added) in the summer time.  I now live in the deep south, meaning Iced Tea is always sweet and is available all year round.  I still remember the first time I ordered tea in the south, it came out and I put sugar in it, my southern friends looked at me very funny.  I took one sip and spit it out, saying this is way too sweet.  My southern friends all laughed at me because I added sugar to my already, very sweet tea.

Making sweet tea is an art form, not everyone can master this art (trust me).  The best sweet tea I have ever had was at the hotel I worked at we had one lady, Ms. Barbara who made the best sweet tea.  I was just right not too sweet not too bitter.  I asked her what her secret is, she always laughed and said "some people can make it and some people can't, I can."

I do make sweet tea and it is good but not as good as Ms. Barbara's Sweet Tea.  I hope everyone has a great first day of summer and sit back, relax and enjoy a nice tall glass of sweet tea.

Freebie Friday - Daddy's Little Girl

Today's Freebie was drawn by my seven year old daughter, she really wanted to do a Father's Day Image for everyone.

Personally I think it is a great image and I know we will be using this image this Father's Day (and on some scrapbook pages too.)

We are ONE fan away from a Giveaway!

I will be checking in periodically this weekend but we have a Tropical Storm headed our way, so internet may be sporadic.  I hope everyone has a great weekend we will be hunkering down, probably scrapbooking because that is a nice no computer activity.  The kids also love when I scrapbook, they love helping mom.
