Despite the hood being ripped off my car for no apparent reason on the interstate, I am determined to make our upcoming road trip happen. Seriously, who does this happen to? Have you ever heard of a hood just flying off of a car? At any rate, the little boys and I plan to head toward the east coast starting on Friday. We will stay with some awesome friends for a few nights in Louisville, and then head to Charlotte to spend a week with my dad and stepmom. Unfortunately we'll have to leave Dan behind. Darn work. Please pray that my car stays intact. 

Throw a ton of fruit into a giant bowl. So technical, right? I used strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, grapes, cantaloupe and watermelon.

Add the juice from 1 lemon.

And then throw in a little something that'll make people say, "Mmm, what IS that?!" Dry pudding mix! I used vanilla flavor, but feel free to experiment!

Mix it all together and chill until you are ready to serve. Enjoy!

Have a great week! And check out my other fruity salads! Cherry Gazpacho Salad, Corn and Blueberry Salad, Candy Bar Fruit Salad and Red Fruit Salad!
