      Thanks, somebody mentioned a “poké popup” to us but didn’t say where. Did just get details on a lemonade stand today, have added that above.

    Stopped by the lemonade stand and grabbed some nice iced coffee and a slice of lemon-blueberry bread today. Love supporting a local group who is going to volunteer in support of saving the environment, I highly recommend checking it out! I especially appreciated the fully compostable drinkware which is in line with their cause!

      Thanks so much for stopping by! The girls are having so much fun meeting so many neighbors and sharing about their upcoming trip. The baked goods are flying, but they have some left and they’ll have more tomorrow. And a special thanks to Highland Park Corner Store for helping out with the compostable cups when their original source left them high and dry. Many learning opportunities for the girls in this process! ❤️

    I stopped by the lemonade stand as well just as some cookies were coming out of the oven.  I couldn’t even wait to get home to partake, so good!  Perfect with an iced coffee.  The young ladies told me all about their plans to help sea turtles in Costa Rica.  They are so well spoken and inspiring and I admire their work ethic.  I’m glad I stopped by to show them some support and my tummy is too!  Check em’ out WS!
