When life gives you lemons make lemonade, and sell blueberries.

I had the lemonade stand idea on my list of 101 in 1001. So finally, Summer has decided to bless us with it’s presence, I had my fabric, Steve managed to find time in amidst berry season hecticness to make the awning, I had the three nieces for the day – It was time…
