Makes My Monday - First Lemonade Stand

The kids were so excited about having their very first lemonade stand this past Friday evening. (It's been SO hot - 100 + - that I decided early evening would be best.) Abby and Noah worked hard to get those signs ready -

Like I posted a couple of weeks ago - we were making our stand to benefit The Cure Starts Now foundation & "put the squeeze on pediatric brain cancer!" Noah kept yelling out - "Lemonade! Get your lemonade!" He was too funny. Gotta love that kid.

Abby was so cute pouring the lemonade and taking the donations. I couldn't help but give her a squeeze too. :)

I had originally hoped to put up our stand at the local Farmers Market, but they already had a vendor selling lemonade. So we decided to do one in our front yard instead and put up signs around the neighborhood and invited friends to come by.

It was a neat experience. The kids have already asked when we can make another lemonade stand. Even at this young age, they understood that this money was going towards helping children who are sick.

Kids helping kids - it doesn't get much better than that.

Most definitely Makes My Monday!

*To donate to the cause, visit or make a stand of your own!

How fun!
My kids have been begging for us to have a lemonade stand but unfortunately, we have no neighbors. LOL

I haven't seen a lemonade stand in a long time. So refreshing to know that kids still do it.
