When Life Gives You Lemons…

2012 August 17

We are gearing up for our first lemonade stand tomorrow morning. Little D and some of her friends have mentioned doing one a few times so we (the mamas) decided this would be the weekend.

We also decided to make it for a good cause, so we’ll be donating proceeds to Alex’s Lemonade Stand.

We all think it’s important that the kids start to learn more about giving back and charity and this is a perfect opportunity for that.

We didn’t want to end up on some lonely street corner in the suburbs so we asked a popular local park if we could set up shop there and once they heard it was for charity, they waived all permits, etc. and welcomed us with open arms.

The stand pictured above is my inspiration…not sure it will actually turn out that way, but a girl can (and should) have a vision…

We’ll be serving lemonade (store-bought), popcorn (store-bought) and cookies (homemade…mostly). These free printables I found are easy chic. We’re painting signs in “laser lemon” paint to let the neighborhood know. Skater hubs even made an adorable little PDF flyer for us to send around to friends and family. Can you tell a PR girl is on the planning committee??

So life gave us some lemons. And we will be squeezing some awesome little memories out of them.

Happy weekend!

    What an awesome idea! Especially doing it at the park. I think it’s great they waived the permit fees since it’s for charity. Little D is going to have such great memories of this. You’re a good mama! 🙂
