Lemonade! Get your ice cold lemonade! And while you're at it, why not have the in-house artist draw your caricature for you? And best of all, the whole shebang is free! All donations go to Feed My Starving Children (not my starving children personally, as one customer thought!)
While the whole project was spearheaded by Max, the other two helped out however they could. Audrey tried to eat markers and grab red plastic cups (she was obsessed with them!) Lucian was the ice-scooper... and often the lemonade pourer, since his big brother had a bit of trouble staying on task when there was a new conversation partner standing right in front of him! We had to train Max not to chase people down the street when they turned down the offer of lemonade. Oy.
Friday evening was so successful that we set things up again Saturday afternoon. My parents came up to have their caricature drawn, and Max put his all into that one. My dad was wearing a hat, but his caricature had to have a stubbly bald head. Of course. And Grandma's hair had some killer volume!
Attention spans were a little shorter on Saturday; we stayed open for only about an hour before making our own visit to the Art Crawl. All in all, though, I would say it was an awfully successful venture! It was a lot of work, and don't ask me to do it again soon, but I think I might have even had some fun too!
