Lemonade Stand

While at Grandma and Grandpa's house the boys had a lemonade stand for the very first time. Grandma provided all the items to make fresh squeezed lemonade and brownies. The boys made all of it with alittle help. We set up at the corner in front of my parent's house about 4:30. Lane was very discouraged when no one bought anything the first 15 minutes and then that all changed. We had two or more cars at times waiting!! They sold out by 5:45 after having about 30 people stop. After we were cleaning up, people still stopped to give the boys a donation for their hard work! What a great experience for the boys and it restored my faith in good old America and generosity!! The boys made $19.00!! Not bad when the lemonade was $0.25 and brownies $0.50. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for letting them keep ALL the profit!
The boys hard at work squeezing the lemons by hand!

Dressed up in funny hats and glasses, hoping to catch some attention!!

The boys busy delivering the goodies and taking the money from a customer.
