Lemonade Stand

It was a perfect afternoon for a Lemonade Stand, so Jack and Alex made lemonade (five cents) - and decided that for an extra penny you could have food coloring added to make your drink extra special! Jack was a bit shy with the customers, but Alex was quite the entrepreneur - and they both loved ladeling the drink into cups and then mixing in the food coloring when requested!

ER in Nashville

The Laffitte family is in Nashville, and Jack decided (?!) to make things interesting by precipitating a 2:30 a.m. trip to the ER when he developed croup and couldn't breathe. Here he is, enjoying a popsicle after they got his fever down and gave him steroids and a breathing treatment... Nothing like keeping life interesting and contributing to a memorable vacation! We're glad he's doing better, and hope he'll be well enough for everyone to fly home today!

An afternoon with the kids...

I had a "play date" with Alex and Jack this afternoon, and we had great good fun! All grandparents should be lucky enough to live close to their grandchildren! What a joy!
