lemonade stand

so hanna, our little entrepreneur, is fascinated by selling things. she's always setting up a store in her room or the basement and making us come buy from her. it's usually set up pretty cool, too, with a cash register and faux money for change.

today, she had the idea to do a lemonade stand. she and tyson have done it before, but this time she wanted to go big. instead of sitting on our street corner, she wanted to take it to the park.

the beautiful mrs k whipped up a couple quarts each of regular lemonade, raspberry lemonade, and strawberry lemonade. we loaded up the kids, iced up the cooler, and headed out.

it was a little slow going at first, but then the customers started coming. some would drive by and then turn around to get some cool, refreshing lemonade on a hot day. the many runners at the park were sitting ducks for a cute kid with cold lemonade. hanna started raking in the dough, and even kevin j ran by to sample some of the brew. she ran out of regular lemonade and had to start pushing the other flavors. mrs k was on hand to make sure the transactions went smoothly, just like she does at work.

meanwhile, tyson and eli were riding their bikes around the park. eli has become an instant bike rider, let me tell you. he pedaled all over the park mostly without my help. he yard saled a couple of times, once really good, but he's a tough nut and didn't even cry.

customers satisfied, we packed up and headed home, a job well done.
