When Life Gives You Lemons…or You Buy Them.

Just like the saying goes “make lemonade”! So we did. A few months ago I had the genius idea to have a fresh squeezed lemonade stand at our town festival for this weekend. A lot of planning, money, and work later we ended up with six extra cases of lemons, a ton of leftover cups, and ended up eating two hundred dollars for our “investment”. I now understand why the saying is “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. There just isn’t a whole lot else to do with them! It was definitely a learning experience. Hopefully things go better next year.

Here is Ryan painting our sign…all I can say is, “killer boots, man”.

I think Daniel was the only one who came out ahead in this deal. I told him I couldn’t afford to pay him minimum wage so we worked out a deal for him to get some tips…he ended up making way more money than we did. Imagine that.



We got our skunk back a few days ago. Daniel was quite amused by her. Unfortunately, we put her in the garage and she escaped! It was fun the 24 hours that it lasted. We put some food out for her so hopefully she comes back.


Untill then, there are plenty of cats to play with.

  1. I loved meeting your little guy at Tom’s wedding. He was so happy to be around everyone… and I loved holding him in my arms! See you July 15th!
