Bored.

What to do... what to do... when you have six kids laying around, no money to spend, you can't drive anywhere, and you have one massive lemon tree (We call it a lemon weed.) ? You take lemons and you make lemonade!

Juicing... for three hours... my kitchen has never smelled so clean or been so sticky.


Sweet and sour.

D-man, the machine!




Cutting, cutting, cutting




and, cutting some more!





Straining!





Washing!



We also sold lemons in bags, lemon bars, sticky popcorn, and sugar free lemonade. The kids pulled in about $40. Not bad for a lemonade stand! It also kept them busy and exhausted for two days!
