Organizing, Garage Sales, and a lemonade stand

On Friday the kids and I went over to my mom's house to help her organize her garage and prepare for a garage sale on Saturday. We had TONS and TONS of stuff to sort through because she is combining her house in Tacoma with her house in Silverton. She is now working in/commuting to Vancouver daily instead of commuting to Tacoma weekly. She is almost completely out of her house in Tacoma. So all that to say...THERE IS TONS OF STUFF. Two of EVERYTHING. We went through bin after bin and got organized and labeled. The kids found all sorts of cool things in the garage to keep them busy for the day while we worked.
The actual garage sale on Saturday was sort of a hoot. It was a beautiful day for the kids to play in the yard and enjoy the sun. Logan and I went on a walk to get lunch and Logan had his first lemonade stand! Ryan was an absolute trooper...he even held Logan's sign for passing traffic. Each car that drove by without stopping would prompt Logan to say, "They didn't see my sign!" It was so funny. He was thrilled to earn $6 or $7 which is quite an accomplishment at 25 cents per cup. Kids make everything more fun...even a garage sale!She was absolutely unhappy about the fact that we made her wear a sun hat! What meanies!

My little explorer...he just wouldn't keep his shoes on!
