So one day last week, my sweet seven year old boy celebrated his last day of official summer vacation. He got to pick what we did for the day – anything (well, within reason!). And you know what? Typical to his adventurous nature and his playfulness, he chose to go to a local farmer’s market that has a ton of playsets. When I say a ton, seriously – they have about 20 different playsets and playhouses for kids to experience and adventure on (I’m guessing in hopes that the families will buy them…sorry, not in our budget!).
For 2 hours Hudson, Anna, Courtlyn and Carson romped on the playsets (Hadleigh slept ;) – and worked up a sweat and an appetite. It was a gorgeous day and a fantastic way to spend the last day of his summer vacation.
Upon arrival home, the fun did not stop though – Hudson had
shnuckered convinced daddy into buying a bag of fresh lemons to make homemade lemonade for a lemonade stand. I, being the responsible Mommy that I am, prepared the said entrepreneurs for the likelihood of no sales. You know, the whole spiel, we live on a cul-de-sac, we don’t have a lot of people walking by, the big people are all at work….
Well wouldn’t ya know that they hadn’t even been outside for more than 2 minutes and a grandpa walked by pushing his granddaughter and offered them a dollar for a glass? Hudson came charging in – he didn’t even have cups out there yet! Needless to say, the rest of the lemonade was consumed by our family as that was their only sale of the day – but they were excited!
