Backyard Surprise

My backyard has pretty much been neglected for about 2 months now.  I hardly ever go back there.  Even getting in the pool is too hot and too much work.  Jason and I noticed this "weed" that was growing in one of the flower beds but never got around to pulling it.  It kept growing and growing.  It has even covered the sidewalk leading to the pool house.  One day Jason came in from the backyard and told me I had to come look at something....

THIS is what we found!!!!!

It's a watermelon vine!!!  
We think at one of our pool parties earlier in the summer the kids must have spit watermelon seeds into the flower bed and this is what happened!  Right now we have 4 really big watermelons growing!
