With the summer winding down quickly, we are trying to pack in as much as we can before the schedule of school starts. We’ve been marking items off our summer bucket list as best we can. Top on Rowan’s list was a lemonade stand. She’s been talking about it for months! She made a whole business plan for the stand including name, logo and how she was going to get customers to stop and buy the lemonade. #ladyboss in the making. The stand was called The Lemonade King. She only charged 1 penny for the lemonade, which of course everyone took pity on her poor (or super smart) asking price and gave her mostly dollars instead. The neighborhood policeman came by for thirds even. We made the lemonade from scratch by juicing a whole bunch of lemons and making a simple syrup to mix together. After getting out a Pink-a-licious book from the library where she makes pink lemonade, Rowan knew for sure she wanted to have that option for customers as well. We just added some crushed up strawberries to the lemonade to make it pink. It was a super fun day that actually brought out a ton of neighbors we hadn’t really talked with before- it was awesome!! I love that things like this bring people together. By the end of the day the girls were full on dancing on the street to try to get people to stop. It was pretty dang cute!
I know we won’t get to everything but I’m still hoping to accomplish…

Oh my goodness, ROWAN, I love that she came up with a whole plan. Your girls, ah adore them!! And the dancing, hehe, seriously the cutest. Wishing you guys an awesome week!! xo
You’re such a great mom. In fact, you remind me of my mom, and I’m 34! But she was like this – giving us space to be ourselves but supporting us each step of the way. I know it’s work, even though I don’t do it, but I want you to know those girls will know it and appreciate it too (even if they forget it a while during their teenage years). 🙂
this is super adorable! if i have a family half as sweet as yours when i’m older, well i’ll be one lucky girl!
I was afraid you were going to say the policeman asked if you had a permit for the lemonade stand, lol. Didn’t that happen to a kid somewhere recently? Ridiculous.
Anyway, it looks like a lot of fun!
This is wonderful! You’re a great mom, Jen! And Rowan is awesome! That “waiting for customers” photo kills me!
They are too cute. I love the dancing technique.
