Mangos, Mangos, Mangos

Thanks to Mami (Marc's mom) Christmas in July arrived at our house this week in the form of an endless box of mangoes. Every year she sends us a box around Marc's birthday. And we always look forward to it and savor each and every one. Remember last year - Taylee was already eating the mango seeds like a pro.

We love mangos!

Thank you Mami!
Thank you Grandma!

We've already been thinking about all the ways we can eat a mango:
Mango Smoothie
Mango Salsa
Marco Mango Madness
Mango Ice Cream
Mango Mousse Cake
Mango Pudding
Mango Cocktail???
And probably the best way to eat it - Mango straight up.

The best part is Mami grows the mangos in her backyard in Florida. Along with avocados, papayas, lemons, grapefruits, oranges, beans, peppers, arugula and probably a lot of other things I am missing. She has a serious green thumb and I am always so impressed by her garden.

Here's two videos of the girls opening the box and Athélie counting all of them in French (super cute!):
