Grand Isle

At the beginning of May the Guillory family invited us to their beach house in Grand Isle for a grand good time...
It was a little too chilly to get in the water, but we still had a great time flying kites and picnicking on the beach...
The chilly water did not deter my kids...the girls were soaking wet by the time we made it back to the car...










The girls found MANY hermit crabs...
John gives kites at least one thumb up...


Sand castle time...
John was trying to fly the kite into me and Kelly in this one...note that I am HOLDING THE BABY!!!  Geez...some people...
I was the artist behind all this fancy hair braiding, I will have you know...
Once we got back to the camp the girls set up what may have been the most lucrative lemonade stand ever for Lemonade Day...
Who could resist such cute sales people?


I can testify that their product was quite tasty.  If you zoom in on the picture you will see that their poster also advertises meat.  They were planning to sell the steaks John was cooking!  Damon wasn't about to let that happen...
Profit sharing...
I know that Lemonade Day is supposed to help kids learn all these valuable life lessons about working hard, earning money, saving it, and spending it wisely.  But you know what?  When the ice cream truck came rolling by, we figured to heck with all that saving stuff.  Let those girls see how sweet hard work can be!

The little entrepreneurs really enjoyed their sweet rewards...and they paid for them with their own money!
