Lemonade and Cookies

Did you ever have a lemonade stand as a kid? I remember having one with my friend Shauna once when our moms were doing a garage sale together. We mixed up lemonade flavored Kool-Aide and sold it for 10 cents a cup. I remember it was a lot of fun to serve the people coming and going as well as make a little money of my very own.

History repeated itself today when Hannah and Leah had a lemonade stand at a garage sale that I was having today. Theirs was infinitely better than the one I had though for two reasons--1. My dad helped them make real, fresh-squeezed lemonade and 2. They also served homemade chocolate chip cookies. The price was also a bit different at 50 cents a cup.

Nothing says "summer" like lemonade in my opinion.
Hannah and Leah ready to go. The photo is a little dark, but I think you can see the smiles on their faces.

They girls (and the lemonade) only lasted about two hours in the hot morning heat. But in the end, they made $7.50, learned a little about working hard and earning money, and more than anything they had fun!

ps-- I get my good camera back tomorrow! Woo-hoo!
