Fresh Squeezed

When the girls arrived on the Fourth….I ask if they’d like to help make the Lemonade..
Lemonade 13
They both jumped right in and as we were getting out the Lemons, Cassie went right over to my cabinet and took out one of my New Treasures that I had just found. You know, one of those things that you buyNot to Use…but just enjoy looking at…!! I have A Lot of those goodies around my home.

I found this pretty juicer at Anthropologie and snatched it up right away. I’ve NEVER USED one of these. I guess because my  Mom never had one so I never really knew what they were.

Lemonade 9 Since I only had ONE….and Carly was standing there looking as if SHE was left out, not having her very own Lemon Juicer…I headed downstairs to dig and search for another one that I knew existed Somewhere in all my collections of STUFF….and I found it.
Lemonade 5 Whew…saved by the antique Jucier/Pitcher that I’ve had for Years and Never Used…!!!! I even have matching glasses for this one…:) OK…they BOTH were HAPPY now and the Fun began….:)
Lemonade 8 So the Squeezing Fun began and Fresh Lemonade was about to be enjoyed..
Lemonade 4 Lemonade 12
They were Very Picky about removing All the Seeds and scrapped the pulp out to make sure all the flavor was would be added in.

After the Squeezing was done, it was time to Mix with Sugar and cold water and pour our Fresh Juicy Drink into my charming Lemonade Server…:)

And oh how Fast it disappeared….!!!! So fast that I never got pictures of it being enjoyed…. But the most fun of all was having My Girls here with me and seeing them having Fun in the Kitchen…
Lemonade13Something so simple as Squeezing Lemons became treasured memories…and made our 4th of July holiday Fun and Sweet…:) 
When life gives you Lemons….Squeeze them…add Sugar
Poof FairyLife is Sweet…!!!

I see your side bar had one but this one is bigger and fabulous! I won't even think of copying it or using it if you chose to keep it solely for your site.Welcome to blogland,Lori
