Summer Bucket List: The Lemonade Stand

The girls have been asking about having a lemonade stand at our house all Summer, and since the weather has finally cooled off a bit, we decided today would be the perfect day for it! They decorated their posters yesterday, some seriously impressive artwork if I might add, and we baked up some cookies after breakfast this morning. There’s always a ton of people outside walking with their kiddos or dogs, and always a construction crew or two, so we had tons of customers and the girls stayed busy for almost an hour! We did regular lemonade & ones with blackberries, which the girls were excited about because they turned pink. I told them it was called fresh squeezed lemonade, so they kept yelling at people to “come squeeze the lemonade!”

It was a ton of fun & definitely one of our favorite ways to spend a Summer day!

Annnnd now we are off to the pool, our favorite way to Friday!! Happy weekend, friends! XO

    Priceless pics! What sweet memories for the girls. We did a lemonade stand/art show last weekend. My son (7) is all about the entrepreneurial side of everything and was super into selling the lemonade. My daughter (5) made a bunch of art work that we strung with clothespins from the trees behind us. The whole time she kept yelling, “free art for sale!” I hope that these are the things that they’ll remember when they’re older. Simple joys to cherish.
