Watermelon Hearts Blueberries or Happy Fourth!

For those who don't live in the states, today is our celebration of independence--the great Fourth of July. We wear red, white and blue in honor of our country, watch fireworks after dark and spend the day off usually eating grilled hamburgers and loads of fruit salad. At least, that's how I do it. :D

My daughter came up with the idea (prompted by Pinterest) to make a red and blue fruit salad. We couldn't find our star cookie cutter to shape the watermelon into stars, so we used a heart instead. We found the star after we were finished, of course. I had to show you that last picture because I swear I see a watermelon man--two eyes and a nose. Do you see him?

Happy Fourth of July! And I want to say thanks to all the men and women who've fought to give and keep our freedom. (Thanks, Dad!)
