Summertime Lemonade

Keri and Noah:  "MomMom, we're bored.  Can we come over?"
Me: "What makes you think you won't be bored at my house?"
K & N: "I'd rather be bored at your house than mine."
Me: "Pack some clothes and I'll come get you."
Among other things, we made lemonade from the naked lemons in the fridge.  You know, the collection of lemons that have been zested and sit looking pathetic in the fruit bin.
being silly comes naturally on damp, dreary, mid-summer days
exaggerated expressions do not reflect their enjoyment of the lemonade
:)  
watching movies from a fort, climbing trees, giving head-locks, playing with Raider and making more goofy faces helped alleviate a case of summertime boredom.

Memories made forever are priceless. We love our Grandchildren.

I love lemonade but must confess I've never made it from scratch. Now I have no excuse! Beautiful photos as always.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

I love that you have "naked lemons" in your refrigerator! =D
How could anyone say "no" to these cuties? Apparently, some MomMom time was just what they needed! So sweet!

This made me smile because I was just looking at the naked lemons, left over from making a gremolata last weekend!
You are so blessed to have the children close enough to come over like that. I can tell that you appreciate and treasure these times and that is so very heartwarming.

This post reminded me of me calling my Mom back when to say come and get us we're bored me and the kids when they were little. She say ok be there soon.. We run around packing up some clothes and wait patiently for her to come..I didn't have a car at the time.Nice sweet post. Blessings with love Janice

Karen said...

They look pretty content to me. I don't think I'd be bored at your house!

How nice to have a recipe for homemade lemonade. I've made a variety of types of lemonade - strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, but never plain old lemonade. Thanks so much for this recipe!

What a blessing to have grands that you can share good times with. I loved making tents with blankets around the dining room table and homemade lemonade. Your grands are not soon to forget all these wonderful memories you are creating with them.

GOD keep you all safe.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I love to buy lemonade from the stand of the little ones down the street, and this reminded me of how much that means to them. You upped lemons a notch by sharing this adorable blog post. So cute!
