When life gives ya lemons....

...make lemonade! While we were in Corpus Christi visiting family last week, one of the kids favorite things was making lemonade. Joey's parents have a lemon tree in their backyard and the kids and their cousins had fun picking lemons and creating a refreshing drink on a warm afternoon.
Daddy helped the girls reach the high branches...

I just love this picture

Aubrey was a little unsure of being up so high :)
Cali proud of her lemon

Love the pose Kai :)

Before Joey helped the kids actually make real lemonade, they tried to make their own in old coconut shells. A bit seedy. And sour. But strangely enough, they were drinking it! No water or sugar added. Silly kids.
Then Joey busted out the good stuff
And lemonade making began!
Group shot: Don, Kai, Cali, Aubrey & Ella. Cousins and friends 4 life.
And it tasted really good. It reminded me of Chick Fil A's lemonade, but better! Good job guys.

Growing up I thought lemon trees didn't really exist. How fun to make homemade lemonade right off the tree!

This was indeed a fun day. I love the pics of the girls on daddy's shoulders missed that part of the process. The lemonade was mighty fine and some great mad skilz were demonstrated for sure.

Uhhh that's not what I heard.. I heard when life gives you lemons you are supposed to put them in your bra to make your boobs look bigger.

But your thing looks good too. ;)
