Yellow Watermelon

Have you ever eaten yellow watermelon?  My girls hadn't before today.  In fact, they didn't know such a thing existed.  Before lunch today, I told the girls I had a surprise watermelon.  They were so excited.  I asked them what they thought the surprise was.  Arin guessed that the watermelon would be filled with candy.  Boy, was she going to be disappointed!

I cut the watermelon in half, but let the girls pull it apart.  Sure enough, Arin was not amazed.  She was super disappointed and did not want to try it because "watermelon is supposed to be red!" 

Ella, on the other hand, was more than willing to try it.  She loved it! 

Arin finally decided to try it, but also confirmed she was not a fan.

I was disappointed with the quality of the watermelon.  I think that Arin might have liked it better if it would have been the consistency it should have been, crisp like a regular watermelon, instead of mostly mushy/over ripe like it was.
