The Best Lemonade Stand Lemonade

Perfect Lemonade StandLemonade (1)Every child has to be a lemonade stand at least once, right?

Jack had his first opportunity this last Saturday, and he meant business. We held it during a garage sale that we did with my parents, and he was quite the little salesman.


When we first thought that he should have one, I figured we’d just buy some Country Time lemonade and call it good.

But Forrest didn’t think that was good enough. He thought we should have delicious homemade lemonade. I told him if he made it, then we could.

And he did. And I’m so glad. It was seriously the BEST lemonade I’ve ever had, and it sold like wildfire. We even sent Forrest back to the store to get more ingredients when we ran out of our third pitcher!
