Watermelon mint slush

OK, this should have been posted over a week ago. Disney vacation is still affecting me which is crazy. I need to get fit!
Anyway, Mother's day 2014, we just had a simple BBQ lunch at home with my in laws, followed by dessert with more family members. Nothing fancy. When my nieces and nephew asked if the desserts were homemade, it hurt me to say they're store bought. Haha I am the baker in the family so a lot of times, they expect homemade treats. But guys, it's mother's day after all and I deserve to take it easy too, you know.=P

Oh, look at these beautiful flowers. My husband Steve, after so many years, finally got me peonies(my favorite flower) this year!! Yay! All these years for any occasion, he said he couldn't find them. Are peonies really that hard to find? I guess depending on the season but anyway, these are just so elegant and adorable. Thank you my love!

It was an unusually hot day for this time of the year, I think about 80degrees? Fantastic. We just opened the pool before mother's day, kids could hang out there and adults could actually sit at the table and have a conversation sipping on this delicious and refreshing drink. What a luxury to stay seated for a big chunk of time! But my tot of course wanted what mommy's drinking so I made a batch without rum. Delicious either way but..I think I like a little kick of rum. It's so simple, I can't even call it a recipe but here we go. 
Oh, if you don't have watermelon frozen already, use fresh and add some ice instead. Though, I personally prefer the texture and consistency with frozen fruit rather than with ice. We had frozen watermelon as Steve bought a gigantic watermelon and we could not have possibly finished it fresh. Enjoy the refreshing treat!
