It's coming… 
I can feel it…tulip shoots are peeking up through the ground… 
it's warming up….birds are chirping…. and I'm ready! 
I'm ready for...
and gardening,
and sunshine,
and lawn mowers,
and freckles,
and open windows,
and my grill,
and longer days,
and snow cones,
and the lemonade stand…
Here's my littles selling lemonade and snow cones last summer.  (With the help of my handy neighbor we made this lemonade stand as their christmas present in 2009).  They wanted to help pay for their dance classes, so every penny they earned went towards their dance stuff (sweats, shoes, bags, and bobby pins… we go through so many bobby pins).  

  And now after looking at these photo's not only am I craving summer, but I could go for a snow cone right now! 
Mmmm....tigers blood.
(I started salivating as I wrote that).


  1. I can't wait for all that either. That stand is awesome. Good for them! What a wonderful oppurtunity for them!

  2. It really has been a great thing to have! The girls learn so many valuable lessons from it and have a ball at the same time!
    Thanks Amy!

  3. So cute... Did you make the lemonade stand? O was it bought? I would love to have one of these!

  4. I designed it, my neighbor built it, and then I painted it (in my garage in the FREEZING cold... I think I should get some sort of gold star for that);)

  5. this is so amazing I hope one day I can be this creative for my daughter its a good thing we there are people as amazing and crafty as you to get inspiration from!! Love it your kids definitely hit the jackpot with you as a mom! :)

    I bet you made the cute aprons too. One summer my oldest girls sold snow cones and made a good chunk of money. Good for you for teaching your girls to work for their things.

    Have a great day.

  8. Thanks guys!
    I did make the aprons, they like to wear them while they are cleaning and helping me cook too. Little girls are a riot!
