    It has been so long since I have had a glass of lemonade. My favorite is strawberry lemonade. I should pick up some lemonade this afternoon so that we can take it to the swimming pool.

    What a cute lemonade stand! My daughter loves to hold one in our neighborhood, but living on the end of a cul de sac we get very little traffic.

  • Gabriel Bregg

    Great way for the kids to spend a summer day. Our kids set up a stand a couple of years ago when there was road work on our road and ended up making almost $50 that they donated to the local Humane Society. Was a great lesson all around.
