Let me start this blog by saying how grateful I am that my kids have thoughtful grandparents that really know and understand them. Yesterday was my oldest child's 9th birthday. She loves to draw and paint and catch bugs and dig in the dirt for worms. She also loves to make and sell jewelry. One of her favorite things to do is sell lemonade in the driveway and have yard sales. She is really a young entrepreneur. Our gift to her for her birthday was a drafting table with an easel top and drawers. One set of grandparents gave her an art set in a case with water colors, pastels, oil and acrylic paint.
Just when she thought her birthday couldn't get any better.
My parents show up with this CUSTOM LEMONADE STAND! They have been secretly planning, building and painting for the past few weeks. The front has a chalkboard where she can list what she's selling. The poles can be used to hang towels.
The lemonade stand also has storage for all her supplies, and the best thing is that it's light weight and all collapses and stores away without taking up too much space.
My daughter found another use as well. This is too funny!
