Who's Thirsty for Some Lemonade?

The next-to-last morning at the beach, Reagan woke up in tears. She was upset because we had forgotten to have a lemonade stand!

Weeks before we ever even went on vacation, Reagan decided that she wanted to have a lemonade stand. She also decided that the best place to have one would be at Pops & Momsey's beach house where it is hot, hot, hot!

This little girl has a way of getting whatever she wants out of her Pops and her Daddy, so she immediately started working on them to build her a lemonade stand so that she could "make some money" on her last morning at the beach. All she had to do was ask, and the two of them set out on the mission of building the perfect stand.

The next morning, our last day at the beach, Reagan and I got busy slicing up the lemons and mixing up her special drink. She was ready and waiting for all of the world to become thirsty!
Reagan was convinced that every person, golf cart, car or bike that went by her stand was supposed to buy a drink. Thankfully, Mr. David from across the street was out cutting his grass and decided that a glass of tasty lemonade would be the perfect treat. He was her first customer, and he kept coming back for more!
She stood on her stool, behind her stand for almost an hour. She served up 2 pitchers of lemonade that morning to friends, family, and strangers for 25 cents per cup. When the lemonade ran out, she was $13.30 richer... she had even made a few tips!
And yes, she has already asked her Daddy if she can have a lemonade stand here at home... She's quite the little entrepreneur!

how cute and what a great idea to do it at the beach! My son grows vegtables & pumkins then sells them to make money.

I don't know what it is with little girls and lemonade stands! Reagan wanted to have one here when we had our yard sale. We set her up with lemonade, cups, ice, etc. and she made 24 dollars! I love little entrepreneurs.
