This summer my neighbor came over with a big cucumber,
he thought we might like it to carve into cucumber boats.
Cucumber boats? Why yes, we would!
We had a bunch of too big cucumbers too,
each kid made their own.
I carved & they decorated.
Straw, paper & tape.
We can handle that!
Rocco picked the "fancy one."
& when Bo's sank he said,
"Cool! Mine's a submarine!"
As I was taking pictures a frog hopped right over my shoulder
into the pond making us all scream!
Yes...me too :)
It took awhile for the kids to sail again
after Mr. Hoppy surprised us.
But it was one of those afternoons where you just knew...
...they would remember.
And to a mom...those afternoons are priceless.
