Watermelon - It's Genetic :)

There's nothing like the summertime flavor of the perfectly ripened juicy watermelon, and we have been enjoying our share this summer.  My boys - especially Ryder - love to pick out the watermelon, and so far they have been doing a great job!

This passion for watermelon runs in the family.  Their Grandpa Romney grew up working in the family business "Romney Produce Company" and they had access to truckloads of watermelon.  Grandpa Romney enjoyed eating a good watermelon, and did his fair share of watermelon bombing - tossing watermelons out of the back of a pickup truck and watching them explode on the pavement!

Their Grandpa Muffett is a watermelon connoisseur.  Able to pick the very best melon out of a pile of thousands. His watermelon knocking technique is pitch perfect!!

So as you can see, this love of watermelons just comes naturally!  And my boys tell me that watermelons these days have only one downfall - no seeds to spit!!
