Summer Food


Summer food is so fun. I saw this cute idea in my Taste of Home Fun Food magazine and thought it would be a fun project for Drew and me knowing how much he is into cars right now.
So this morning we gathered all of our stuff and made a fruit car. I did all of the cutting (of course) and Drew did the assembly (outside of the toothpick parts). He kept making "vroom vroom" noises as he worked. It was too cute. Then he started to disassemble the front of the car to put those parts inside with the fruit. I guess he's not ready to go work for F1 just yet.
We had a great time and a great product.
I let him sit down and eat out of it as soon as we were done. I figure we're all family here, so that's ok. We'll just keep restocking the car for as long as it stays "good."

After washing our hands, Drew stood on a chair and helped assemble his fruit car
Notice that it did not take long for the marshmallow eyes to disappear
and now we have leftover fruit salad to keep restocking the car with.

We'll enjoy it again for dessert tonight and snacks tomorrow. I know Drew will get excited every time we get it out of the fridge. I can't wait to hear his "vroom vrooms"

Thanks y'all! I found it out of a magazine.... not mine originally. But we had a great time!!! He still asks for "fruit car" sometimes when he sits in his high chair. Apparently it made an impression on him. =]

Oh my goodness. I think your car and your little boy are adorable. I miss those days. My children are grown and no sign of grandchildren yet. God Bless you and your sweet little family.
