Here is our pay load squash and only squash so far. There were several smaller squash growing also, but they disappeared! We keep seeing two little bunnies in the yard so they probably ate them and couldn't carry off the giant squash? I need to put some chicken wire up I guess.
It tasted pretty good to us, but Parker spit it out and Meadow wouldn't touch it. I did read online that yellow squash is supposed to be tastier if you pick it younger which is why you probably never see giant yellow squash in the grocery store.
The Apex 4th of July festivities included some face painting, bouncy houses, train rides etc. Parker asked with the tears starting to please wipe off his tiger face 3 minutes after Greg's parents paid $7 to get it painted (see my gray hair?!) but Meadow liked her $2 flower.
Showing our patriotic spirit
Bike Parade at Noon that we have not made it to yet. We try to go early to beat the heat and the kids are done after an hour or two. We'll try for this next year, it looks fun.
