Lemonade and Friday Fill ins

Signs of Summer
Homemade Lemonade

Fresh squeezed lemonade is the best and perfect for a hot summer day! My kids love it!
I start by leaving my lemons out at room temperature to make it easier to get juice. Before cutting them in half I have my husband (if available) squish them in his hands for a few minutes, this helps to get the most juice possible from the lemon. Once they are squishy enough I squeeze the lemon juice into hot water and then add honey to sweeten it (the hot water helps dissolve the honey). I then add sugar around the rim and at the end of the straw, then add a few ice cubes to make it cold to drink.

Refreshing and Super Yummy!

Great blog! Love the bags you got for the kids. I agree about the worries that come with parenthood. I have three teens and it never stops even though they are terrific kids. It sounds like you have a fun weekend planned. Hope you get to relax and enjoy!

I get accused of "sighing" too - apparently my sighs speak louder than words :)
