Lemonade Stand

A successful lemonade stand happens on a hot day with a captive audience. We combined forces with our friends and sold lemonade at a library concert. It wasn't as hot as we thought it was going to be, I may have some leftover lemonade in my fridge (we'll be drinking it for the next three days). All the money that we made (about $30) will be donated to the library. The kids had fun...we'll have to do it again.
Lily gets to sample some of the lemonade.

Keeping Kids Busy

A friend came up with the idea for a service scavenger hunt. The kids actually seemed excited about doing it. We had a group of four families and then after the first house we split into two teams of two. The time frame was two hours which flew by. Of course the kids were getting tired by the end and the weeding wasn't as enthusiastic as in the beginning. Did we keep points? No. Did the kids have fun? Mostly. Do my kids want to do it again? Yes!

I tried a lensbaby which has the following effect;
