The Lemonade Stand & Sleepover

I'm going to fire off a few quick blog posts with recent photos if you don't mind. I haven't been doing a great job of updating here and now I am in catch-up mode.

So first off is the lemonade stand story. Sophie came over for a sleepover and it was such a beautiful afternoon that we decided to sell some lemonade and raise money for charity. Kiki's class collects coins every Friday for Tzedakah (charity) and so we thought it would be a great way to get the some quarters. But Kiki had other ideas and when anyone asked how much they were charging per cup she would say "oh, it's a buck!"

The girls had a blast and were so excited when their friends showed up. I actually ended up making a second batch of lemonade because it was selling out so fast. Here's a picture of the girls with Kylie:

The girls collected the money and placed it in the cash register and were very excited about the entire event. When we were done they had collected $12 which we matched and sent to the 'Bees' charity coffers. They will decide what children's charity will get the money they have collected at the end of the school year. Such a smart way to teach kids about charitable giving.

So after a fun afternoon, it was time for a nice relaxing bubble bath:

and a little picnic on our bed while watching some TV:

Then it was time to go to bed and obviously that was not going to happen easily and we ended up with a little meltdown and flat air mattress, but all things considered the girls had a lot of fun.
