Hello, friends! Can you believe that we are already into the middle of July?! I sure can’t. As it always goes, these summer days are flying by so quickly. We’ve been making the most of it by taking advantage of every sun shine day that we get. Our days are filled to the brim with trips to the swimming pool, running through sprinklers, days at the fair, and mornings at summer camp. As much as I love to take it slow & easy come summer, many of our days are spent on the GO – GO – GO!

With all of the running around that we do, and considering that this entire month has been hot, humid, and sunny — keeping us hydrated & cool runs at the top of my priority list. That’s why you will find us snacking on watermelon just about every single day through these summer months. Whether we’re day-tripping to the lake or enjoying a BBQ with family, there are so many fun, easy watermelon recipes that keep us happy.

In these pictures, you can see just a few of our favorites: Watermelon Ball Cups, Watermelon & Pink Lemonade Ice Pops, and Watermelon & Chocolate Smoothies. Each of these is so simple to pull together and best of all, they keep my little ones smiling throughout all of our adventures. ( Well, that is when we’re avoiding bee stings, scraped knees, & fighting over sand toys — but that’s #momlife for ya, right!? 😉 )

These little ones keep me on my toes and I keep them hydrated & smiling with watermelon. Watermelon is a perfect ingredient for on-the-go meals and snacks! I learned recently that the entire watermelon is edible: flesh, juice AND rind. I use the whole watermelon, especially when making smoothies and juices. If you love watermelon as much as we do, make sure to enter your original watermelon recipe into Watermelon Board’s recipe contest.

It was such fun partnering with the National Watermelon Promotion Board on this post. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed putting it together for you.

Whether you are headed to the beach to play in the sand or looking for a refreshing breakfast before a day at camp, keep watermelon in mind for all of your summer adventures. We’ve got so much on our agenda this week including a trip to the carnival and a road trip to the seashore, so wish me luck (and energy to chase these two around!). I’ll catch you on the other side, friends. xo
