Day Forty-Five: Lemonade Stand Debut

So they decorated the stand, Jack & I made brownies and cookies, Jack made a price sign...and the captains of industry set up shop! Now all they needed were some customers...


I mean come on, how cute are they...come buy some lemonade please!!!


It didn't take long for EJ to dip into the profits! :-) Actually Grandma may have given them some cash to support their habit! They did well...they had a solid hour of customers (I mean not constant but still) including a group of thirsty people just returned from the State Fair (thanks Jo & Chris) and made $7.25 (of which Jack pocketed $5 and gave EJ $2.25...let me just remind you this is HER stand!! But she didn't mind...good sis to have, eh?)


For the second hour of sales (during which there were no sales), we had a picnic on the front lawn for dinner. Matt snapped this pic of the kids and I "manning the lemonade stand."


Liv would rather eat her hand, fingers, fist than the goodies (and actually by now the goodies were lost in a freak wind accident that sent the stand...and everything on it...flying!)...


I wish I knew what these two were doing here...Matt snapped this one, but it was too good not to share! Despite these faces, our first lemonade stand was a success! We even got raves on our products! We'll def. do this again...and Jack might even rent you "his" stand if you're interested!

Hi Heather, I'm a friend of Cyndi's (Southern Daze) and I stumbled over to your blog. I just had to say how awesome this lemonade stand looks! My son has been after me to do one; I'd better not let him see the pictures of yours because I'll never live it down. Well done!

Thanks Sadie! Ours was mostly pre-made...trust me, we are not that talented! I just searched it for you (ours was a gift) and you could get your own here! http://www.cardboardesign.com/kids.php
