  •   theidearoom Sorry! Left for couple of days and had no service in mountains! @lowi72 ha! A few were not pictured. But yes. We were outnumbered!! @anjlde you sit on chairs and line up like ships on the game. Cover the net so you can't see either side with blankets. Throw water balloons over one at a time and if you hit someone on other side you get points. You can't move if a balloon is going to hit you! Take turns throwing balloons over. Next time we will use water balls or sponges!! @lasknit2 4d
  •   theidearoom @lauriepopjones we missed you all!! 4d
  •   lowi72 @theidearoom sounds like good fun. Noted for the next party. :) 4d

theidearoom Today I made my husband and kids go on a hike with me. A 1.5 mile hike turned into a 5.7 mile hike because the road to the trailhead was closed....and they "loved" it, but only because it's my birthday! #albionbasin #snowbird #cecretlake #itwasgorgeous 1w

theidearoom Do you live on Watermelon in the summer like we do? #watermelonslush #ontheblog 2w
  •   nestofposies Yummy! 2w
  •   jimisgirl Yes, I just love cold watermelon :) 2w
  •   freshlybakedsweets Every morning gets started with watermelon juice 2w
  •   hollycreates Everyday watermelon...any tips on picking a good one...sometimes we get a great tasting one but more often than not, we get dry and tasteless ones. I tried picking one's heavy for their size...light for their size...no spots on the outside from laying on the ground...ones with lost of ground spots. I need help picking!!!!! 2w
  •   the_mrs_carter_show Smell the "butt" @hollycreates the sweeter the smell the sweeter the taste :) 2w
  •   drycountrygirl @hollycreates The most important thing (to me) is choosing one with a very noticeable, deeply colored "ground spot". This is the spot where the melon was touching the ground while growing; that yellowish spot on one side of a melon. A good ground spot means the melon was left on the vine to ripen longer, thus gaining a sweeter flavor. I also go for melons that seem heavy for their size. 2w
  •   chickabug @the_mrs_carter_show that's memorable advice!! 2w
  •   hollycreates I will try that next week when I buy watermelon again...a deep yellow spot it is-thank you tons!! 2w
