Watermelon Day

Yes, the challenge continues. Today is National Watermelon Day. One fact I had no clue about this filling fruit is that it originated in South Africa before it made its travels around the globe.

Watermelons can be a ton of fun besides eating them. One of my favorite summer memories was to have a watermelon contest, where we would cover watermelons in Crisco and dump them in a swimming pool. The first person to bring one out won the contest, usually given a fun prize.

The day is not over yet, so enjoy the watermelons while they are still around!
