Leeeeeemnaaaaaade, 10 cents!


How to make lemonade and sell it:
1st you squeeze the lemons
2nd you get lemon juice in your eyes
3rd you put on nifty goggles to avoid getting more lemon juice in your eye









4th you make a sign to advertise and laugh because the letters gradually get bigger











5th you sit by your stand and hope somebody drives by
6th when you see an approaching car you jump up and down until they stop or drive by
7th if you are Tucker you spit at the car who drove by and didn't stop and then say ugly words
8th if you are Tucker's mom you explain patience and its value

9th after a very long couple of impatient minutes you drink your product
All in all they were quite successful! They earned $7.56, not bad for an hour and a sunburn!

LOVE IT! Kamryn has always wanted to do that, I just say NOPE. Mean mommy.

I love that you your kids did it and LOVED it by the looks on their faces. And hey.. sunburns always turn into a golden tan... blondies with a tan... watch out!

Nicole said...

How cute is this? I love it. I saw some kids doing this on Saturday when I was coming home from the picnic, but I was so tired that I just drove by. Now I feel bad:)

Jen Olson Brown said...

This is so great. It is nice seeing pictures of your kids enjoying their little lives even at such a hard time. Great post and you sure have a talent in writing. Happy selling!

Deana said...

WOW! Thats alot for such a short amount of time! Those kids are adorable! I would buy some but the shipping might cost more than what they made. Thank you so much for your support with our little Libbi. I know it means alot to Mindi.

Jenna said...

Nice profit I must say! At least they are motivated to get out and do something productive..... Maybe I should throw our WII in the trash!

That looks like so much fun! My kids have asked to have a lemonade stand, but I keep putting it off. I guess I should be a cute, fun mom like you and actually help them to have one!! I especially love Tucker's response to the cars that don't stop. You'll have to journal that for him!!!LOL

Jamie Y said...

So cute! This is some sort of right of passage that my kids have been denied of, maybe I should let the do one...someday. I loved getting all caught up on your life, your Disneyland trip looked awesome. My kids hated bugs life too.

Mandi said...

That is hilarious! What a cute mom you are to sit with your little friends while they prepare themselves for the sale of their little lives. I am completely impressed with their profit! Tucker is such the funny little man. I haven't forgotten about our playdate with Tatum and Tucker, it just had to be postponed from this week because my kids have been throwing up most of the week thus far. I thought I would spare you the fun that I had because it may have been just a little too much fun to share. I will talk to you soon!!!

Renae said...

WOW!!! That is more than minimum wages, and Tucker definetly looks likee a scientist creating a brew!! I am sure they will want to open other locations. They are to to cute!! GG and Old Papa

The Kemptons said...

That is so cute. Especially Tucker's spitting. That is so funny, don't you love having a boy.

sara said...

how funny!!! I love all that went into that stand. Did you keep the sign for future sales?

Alisa Larson said...

Cute!! I would have bought some if I'd have known! Next time do some advertising before the big sale! :-)

Eve said...

Like father like son! Our kids use to sell lemonade too. I think they charged more tho!! It's quite profitable. No one can pass up those darling faces.

Lily's Mama! said...

Love Love LOVE the goggles, made me giggle to see them. So something I would wear myself because Lemons and I don't get along. Tatum and Tucker are adorable as always, love Tatums smile when she is sitting in the chair. What a great Idea before the AZ temps get unbareable and we are all indoors with the AC cranked up...or wait...maybe down.
I think of you daily and wished I lived closer by.

Oh and thank you for the flip flop Idea for the baskets...I also love your Christmas in July idea also. As soon as i get the new site under way I will let you know everything that is going on. I would love to get everyone together, when we start assymbling the baskets, We are going to try to make our first set of basket drop off's by April 29th, in honor of my friend Bridgettes son who passed away that day.

I will keep you updated.

Sending you our heart hugs and blessings

Sincerely
Jenna and Lily
