I love watermelon!  It is my favorite fruit.  One of the best parts of summer is watermelon.  So I was thinking that maybe I would share some great ideas for watermelon.

When we took our trip to the Gaylord Texan, they had watermelon water on their breakfast buffet.  All I have to say is I was in heaven and drank about 4 glasses of the delicious watermelon goodness.

So when I got home I kept wanting it so I dived in and figured out how to make it.
