Orange Cherry Lemonade Water

I made this today because it's feeling like summer and citrus water is always refreshing. I'm also pregnant and have to drink like a gallon of water a day... so... plain old water is getting boring.
The recipe is at the bottom, but I had fun taking some pictures. :D
 Step 1: Entertain the toddler. Put him in the highchair and gave him an organic pear.
Step 2: Slice the orange and cut off the rind. My oranges were not organic and the rind looked quite sad.
 Step 3: Add in two maraschino cherries and 2 tsp of the juice.
**Baby bump in the picture!!
 Step 4: Add some nice cold water.
 Step 5: Check on the toddler... he's still chowing down.
**Notice the orange slice? He'll get to that in a minute.
 Step 6: Add a tsp of pink lemonade. Adds a smidge of color and flavor.
 Step 7: Pop it in your fridge and let it rest for 1/2 an hour or so.
 Step 8: Get the little guy down from the chair. He's eaten lunch, devoured his fruit and is ready for nap time!
 Step 9: Once your ready to kick up your feet, remove your orange cherry lemonade water from the fridge and stir.
Step 10: Fill your mason jar with ice and a big straw.
 Step 11: Pour in the water. (I'd add mint if I had any!)
Step 12: ENJOY!
