Watermelon Football

This was so much fun.

If you have never played watermelon football, you have to experience it at least once in your life.

Imagine a bunch of people, grown ups and kids alike trying to wade through the water with people pulling on them and get a watermelon across the "field" to score a touchdown.

That is what we did tonight at Thomas pool.

It would start by one person standing in the middle of the pool, each team on their own end and the person in the middle would dunk the watermelon under water and as soon as it came back up, everyone would attack.

Then we would fight and move and drag kick back and forth until one team scored. Then each team would limp or wade back to their side breathing really hard.

It was a work out.

I am sore and I know that I will have bruises tomorrow.

Ana White is viscious, she was pulling hair and kicking. Josh Owen has the scratch marks across his back to prove it. Don't worry, we did not let Kelly play. She has her own little precious "watermelon" to protect.

It was a little scary to see people like Jake White, Josh Owen and Ken Freeman coming at you...those are some big guys, but we girls held our own.

Our own little Sara Eaker was so good she even got traded...I don't think Ryan like that very much, but he and Carlos are pretty tough.

So much laughing, so much fun.

Good times and good friends.

Happy Birthday Jake, Ana and Kaylene!!!

Yes! Watermelon football is the bomb. I want to play this with a few less people and a much bigger watermelon next time.
