Ashton's Lemonade Stand

Monday, February 11, 2008

Last week I was at HEB with the kids when Ashton had a brilliant idea... she wanted to have a lemonade stand! Part of her great idea was that she wanted to sell the lemonade for $5 a cup, but I quickly gave her a lesson in economics and supply and demand and we negotiated the price down to a fair $.25 a cup.

Anyway, on to the story... since the kids stay at Memaw's on Friday nights I suggested that she have her stand at Memaw's on Saturday. I thought they would have more traffic than us since we live in a cul-de-sac, but my heart broke when Ashton called me at 1pm and asked me to come buy a glass of lemonade. That's when she told me that they had had no customers all morning. Now how sad is that for my little entrepreneur? Of course I jumped in the car, with all the spare change I could find, and drove straight over to buy some lemonade.

I certainly wish more people had stopped - as you can see, she's quite the greeter!

Taylor was the entertainment, with his new bubble wand. He had a great time showing me the HUGE bubbles that thing would produce.

He wanted to make sure he got in on the lemonade action when I showed up.

I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
