"Lemonade for sale!"

Photobucket
The girls begged me to let them set up a lemonade stand last winter...but I promised them that the middle of a snowstorm wasn't the time to sell ice cold lemonade.

Yesterday, their 'dream came true' (yes, that is an exact quote). And they did quite well for themselves. They earned $5.50 by selling 11 glasses @ 25 cents each (plus a few generous tips).

Into the Dentist's Chair

Photobucket
[This is how I found Lorelai this morning.]

Poor Donald, a few days ago he was sitting in Disneyland, basking in all that Disney goodness and today he is heading in for dental surgery....implants to be exact. No fun.

And next month doesn't get better. I have my dental surgery on the 23rd to remove all those decaying wisdom teeth that are lying under my gums, Lorelai goes in for a cleaning next week, and Alexandra is meeting with a pediatric specialist about the fact that her molars have enamel hypoplasia.

What is going on here?

Home from the vacation and into the dentist's chair.

Elisabeth seems to be the only one who's safe.

Lucky her.

Memorable.



***Clarification: There has been some confusion. This trip has nothing to do with our NY trip. That vacation will take place later this summer.
