Our neighborhood held a sidewalk sale today, going to the trouble to obtain the permits (who knew you needed a city permit to hold a sidewalk sale??), so we joined in and unloaded a lot of stuff. This was the person responsible for organizing 40 families.
The girls decided they wanted to sell lemonade as well so we set it all up. We did have one Chinese family stop and buy 4 cups (and leave a nice tip) when they learned that both girls could talk to them in Mandarin!
"Would you like some lemonade?" to people's backs as they walked by to standing right in front of them, blocking the sidewalk, making eye contact and asking strongly, "WOULD YOU LIKE SOME LEMONADE? IT'S 5 CENTS!"
We wrapped it up by donating all the remaining unsold toys/goods to a local charity, ordering some pizza and calling it done. Soon after eating a very early supper, Lucy fell asleep on me while Kate and Len walked to the drycleaners.
On another note, Nana was here for the past 2 weeks, helping out with the girls as Lucy recovered from her surgery. She left today and I realized that we took next to no pictures save for a couple one day when it wasn't raining and/or 50 degrees. We managed a short walk along the lakefront before Lucy complained that her face was hurting so we headed home for popsicles and more rest.
And on one more note, Bella turned one year old today! Happy birthday Bella!
