I grabbed some money and took the boys over there to partake in the fun. The excitement that welcomed us was priceless. The 4 kids were so giddy and frantically yelled inside to their mom "We have our first customer! We have our first customer!!!" It was awesome.

My boys wanted to stay for a little while, so we sat back and watched as the kids continued their efforts in getting customers.

Car, after car, after car...after car, drove by. Most avoiding eye contact with the kids. And all sporting an awkward, embarassed stink face.
My heart just broke. Each car that passed by sucked a little enthusiasm out of each of those kids.

I finally had a chance today to uphold my Lemonade Stand Promise. These two brothers were sittin' at a card table, in what felt like 125 degree heat, with their big poster and a huge pitcher of lemonade. I pulled up and rolled the window down and chipperly said "I would like some lemonade!" The younger brother smiled, jumped right up and poured my lemonade but the older brother just sat there looking bored. I think he may have been mandated by his parentals to sit there and watch his little brother. I saw this as a challenge and was determined to make him smile! I got out of the car to give the younger brother my money and to retrieve my lemondae (which was really freakin' good by the way). I thanked each of them and told them how much I appreciated getting the lemonade on such a hot day. That didn't get a smile out of older brother. I got back in the car and yelled out the window "Thanks again, and good luck, I hope you sell a lot of lemonade today..." and BOOM he cracked a smile...AND waved goodbye to boot!!
So, moral of the story, don't be a grumpy old stinkface. Stop and get some darn lemonade or else our kids may start selling other stuff instead;
