Lemonade, Anyone?

Last week, I mentioned that I had come in second place in the Z Recommends/Mr. McGroovy contest. We got our box of rivets in the mail yesterday, and I started researching where to get big boxes. As it turned out, Mr. McGroovy was overwhelmed by the awesome dragon idea, and only half-finished the plans before throwing in the towel. I don’t blame him, it’s a big project! As a result, he made my lemonade stand plans instead! Now the pressure is really on me, as I feel obligated to build the stand and help Ellie sell lemonade for the first time. I’m not sure that I’ll have time to track down boxes before our trip to Michigan next week, but I will definitely be building a stand before the summer is out. After all, it’s freakin’ hot out there! Perfect lemonade selling weather. Ellie may also be having a space shuttle birthday party, so I will probably end up making one of those as well.
Update: I talked to McGuire Appliances over my lunch break, and asked if they had any refrigerator boxes. After I explained to him what they were for, he said he would have them hold them after deliveries on Thursday, and I could come get a bunch then. Very cool guy, and I think Ellie will be excited to try it out!
