I'm a Lucky Mommas

Sorry the picture's not the greatest! I just wanted post about how proud my boys made me last week. Saturday's training was defeating to me so this lit my heart on fire. My boy's got 3 huge bags of lemons given to them at Cub Scouts and they called me on Thursday on my way to work to tell me they wanted to do a lemonade stand and donate all the money they made to my for my fundraising. OK what a sweet gesture. They brought me to tears while driving lol. Sunday morning we cut and squeezed about 5 dozen lemons. The boys and I actually hand squeezed lemons with wooden spoons because we don't have a juicer thing. We ended up making 6 gallons of Fresh squeezed lemonade and almost sold all of it. Our local fire department is just a few blocks up the street stopped by in the HUGE ladder truck on the way back from a fire. They were heading to the firehouse and came to get some lemonade. I don't know who was more excited me or the boys lol. Anyway they were outside all day working their stand and at the end of the day they had earned $108.62 Not bad for a 9,7 and 5 year old! I'm so very proud of the fact they wanted to support me. They have decided that we need to find someone with a lemon tree so they can do a few more for me. I'm seriously the luckiest momma! It's such an honor to send a Donation check to the LLS in my boy's name!!!


  1. Bet those firemen were cute, but not as cute as your boys!

  2. I have a weakness for firemen and one of the reasons I decided to do Nike Women's Marathon is because you are met at the finish line by a firefighter in a tux presenting you with a Tiffany's necklace as your medal. Doesn't get much better than that in my book!
