Are you ready for some seriously summery cuteness? ;)
Toby has been begging me to help him set up a lemonade stand for the past week, and the weather just hasn't been good enough to make his "business plan" work too well.
But....we did finally get a really nice, hot afternoon last week, and so we crafted up a little sign (he told me that the lemonade should be 5 cents. "Just because that's how much it costs, ok?" ) :)
So, out we trundled (read: me just about killing myself carrying a table, two chairs and a tray with a glass bottle of lemonade) Ok....stupid move...I know....but we were psyched to get out there.
I got this organic lemonade on sale for $1.49, and was glad that I'd had it stashed in the cupboard because we were out of lemons.
So...there they sat......so so excited for their first customer to come along.
and they sat.....
....and sat a little more....
And then our first customer came!!
And seriously....they were ALL BUSINESS. Pouring from a glass jar and getting paid to do it.
What more could little boys want? really...
They did have a few kind souls who came walking along our very quiet road, and stopped for a drink:)
I felt a liiiitle bit cheesy taking pictures of them, though...hah!
So I didn't bother.
At one point, Toby had to go to the washroom, and said " Finny....you take care of the stand while I'm gone. If there's any customers, you just pour it for them, ok? " Finny said "OK, Boby" :)
Well, they drank the whole bottle of lemonade (minus about 4 very small glasses) in the hour and a half we were out there.
Nothing quite like some good old-fashioned fun, right? :)
Toby said afterwards..."Lemonade stands are hard work, you know.....POuring....stuff like that. But not as hard as Dada's work...playing on the pecuter all day" :) :)
