Amazing, Sweet Lemonade. No Joke.


When life gives you lemons, make lemonade … right?

I had a bunch of lemons left on my kitchen counter after our half-finished cleanse, and I wasn’t sure what to do with them!

I asked out loud, more to myself than my 3 1/2 year old and 18 month old, “What do I do with all those lemons???”

Duh-make lemonade! What else do you do with 9 lemons, two cooped up kids, and yet another long winter day?

Life’s been giving us a bunch of lemons lately. And we’ve tried our best to make lemonade out of them. But somedays  … well, somedays are just hard. So today? We literally made lemonade. And it was sweet. And yummy. If only it was sunny and warm … 🙂

The goofballs were my ready and willing helpers!

Squeezing a lemon is harder than it looks! It took all Joshua’s muscles. And mommy’s too. 🙂


Big brother taught Becca how to do the juice mixer. Big moment for him, letting her give it a try!


Mmmm! It’s good Mama!
