Summertime

Most of my favorite memories of summertime involve lemonade. My best friend Catherine and I would sit for hours by the side of the road praying that people would stop at our lemonade stand. The $2 profit would keep our spirits up for days!

My mother would pour lemonade into paper dixie cups and freeze them. We would eat them by peeling away the paper cup as we ran around the neighborhood causing trouble. Every once in awhile, our excitement would result in a sticky lemonade spill in the freezer...

Lemonade *is* summer to me. Think of all your summer memories, kiddie pools, sidewalk chalk, building forts, blowing bubbles... and get excited for this Sunday's Village Street Carnival!

This Sunday at Village we will be having a social time outside for sidewalk chalk, jump roping, blowing bubbles, frisbee, lemonade, and watching the Condiment Fight Club!

The Condiment Fight Club is a gladiator style tournament, where 2 players battle each other with condiments. The first to slash the opposing player with mayo on the front and the back is the winner, and moves on to the next round. If you want to play, be sure to bring a condiment and wear grubby clothes.

Feel free to bring your pogo stick, hula hoop, or anything summer-y you can think of, and we'll blow off some of the restlessness of spring!

Ahhh, the good old days of lemonade sales... (My main memory connected with that would be losing my two front teeth :)
