When Life Gives You Lemons...

When life gives you lemons... 
We all know how the quote ends, right. You make lemonade!

Nobody ever sounded cuter saying it though than Alex Scott. And this weekend was the official Alex Scott Lemonade Stand weekend... the anniversary weekend of when Alex held her first lemonade stand at the age of four.  She made two thousand dollars at that first sale back in 2000... all of which she donated to the doctors... "to help other kids, like they helped me." After raising more than $1 million before her passing in 2004, her legacy lives on and has raised millions to help find a cure for childhood cancer.  

On Friday we went to the annual Pitcher of Hope celebration... and it was bitter sweet... kind of like lemonade. Hahaha. Bitter because there was no flashmob :o(  ...and sweet because we have Owen to celebrate with us... and, of course, because I'm still here :o). Owen suited up for the occasion... as Barney would say. And, he got his first tattoos. I, on the other hand, was tempted to wear one of these T-shirts...  but thought they might not fall within the CHOP dress code standards.


Bottoms up!
lots of love & lemonade...

P.S. Did you know that Alex was also an accomplished author... and all the people pictured in her book depict people in her life. And you might find a certain someone that you know.. hint hint.. look for the person with one leg. :o)

P.S. You are looking at Owen's chubby thigh :o)
