What we liked:

We loved trying a new variation of recipes we've made before. 

What we didn't like:

Nothing,these were great. they were both the best we've ever made. 

What Kaspian thought about it:

He didn't notice anything but the watermelon. The watermelon he loves. We bought the watermelon a week before the party and he's been wanting it every day. It was a very exciting moment when we actually cut into it. Kaspian stuffed both his cheeks with watermelon and looked like a little chipmunk. Then, he asked for more. 

Next time:

No changes needed
