Got Lemons?

I have such fond memories of being young and selling lemonade on my neighborhood street. So being we have a huge lemon tree in our yard and it was 90 degrees outside in Los Angeles… I thought, what better time than to pass on the tradition to my cute kid. We took out the amazing kid sized farm stand that our talented friend Jeff Locus helped us design and build last year when we had a strawberry themed birthday party for Harper. After changing the name from “strawberries” to “lemonade” they were ready to sell.

Harper had her Texas cousins in town and working together they passed out the best cold lemonade our lemon tree had to offer. They were so cute working together to fill each cup and pass out to anyone that came by. I couldn’t help but chuckle at their proud faces as they watched people gulp down the lemony drink. Even when there were no customers left…Harper stayed and kept assembling the cups with straws and pouring as if there were more people in line. It warmed my heart to see how much she loved partaking in this old familiar pastime. Here’s to many more hot days ahead.


For anyone wanting to build a fun farm stand for kids…here’s the design and drawing from our talented carpenter and friend, Jeff Locus of Craft Werks Designs.

That is so cute! Harper is right into it. It’s great to have these traditions continue & she along with her cousins should be proud of themselves.

So, so sweet. My kiddos love to do this on the last day of school. Lucky Harper to be able to do it year round! Love the stand you built, too.

Love that lemonade stand – it looks like its meant to be sitting by the side of the road, ready to welcome thirsty travellers!


I always wanted a lemonade stand when I was little but it wasn’t in the cards with our family/lifestyle. I hope my son wants to do this when he’s a bit older. I’m all about it. These pics are too cute. Just caught your show on the Cooking Channel for the first time. Loved it! You have such an awesome personality. :-)

I remember the summer day when my neighbor yelled over to me, “no more lemonade stands?”. Since my kids had their own lemonades stands every year, even he noticed the passing of time and the summer when they reached too old to have one. Enjoy! Lovely tradition and I adore that lemonade stand!

Congratulations on the birth of your second child. Your first child,daughter Harper is cute. I always admired you on Saved by the Bell. You have a nice smile and you still look good. God Bless you and your family. I also heard that your Saved by the Bell co-star Mark-Paul Gosselaar had his forth child a girl on February 17,2015(shortly before his bithday). Congratulations on him having his forth child. She is adorable. I hope Harper is enjoying being a big sister.
