Great Summer Recipe

We love this recipe... it is delicious, simple, and very pretty. Great for cookouts, picnics, and summer celebrations.

Summer Fruit Salad

You judge how much of each you want depending on the size of your salad. Sorry about the lack of measurements, but you can judge all to taste.

Watermelon (chunks)
Strawberries (quartered)
Fresh Pineapple (chunks)

Place in a large bowl.
Finely chop about 7 mint leaves and place to side.
Make a simple syrup (1 part water 1/2 cup , 2 parts sugar, 1 cup) Bring to a boil, toss in mint leaves and boil for one minute. Careful not to burn syrup, stir constantly.

remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Pour over fruit to taste. (store any leftover syrup for quick salads or snacks) Toss and serve or chill until serving time. :)

Enjoy a fresh fruity treat!

Happy Easter!

I hope you all had a wonderful day Celebrating the Gift of Salvation! God has been and continues to be so good to our Family. We were a little down with allergies for most of Sunday, but did manage to squeeze in a little egg hunting. :) And in Case you noticed and were wondering.... yep. We got a puppy... She found us at the park last Monday and I just couldn't leaver her there. A week later we decided to call her ours. Her name is Sally. Our sweet warrior, William Luke. 5 years old.

Happy Cade. He was so excited to find his eggs.

This is the funniest pic to me. When you ask Brennan, "Where is your smile?" This is the face he gives every time. Cracks me up.
