No, I haven't forgotten about our summer "live" list! Just because the weather was a bit cooler in June didn't put out our summer flame! So we are checking homemade lemonade off the list!
After I posted that I wanted to make handmade lemonade Erin (the wife of one of my cousins) emailed me their family's favorite lemonade recipe. So when my mom, dad, & Steph were around we tried it & LOVED it.
Hopefully Erin won't mind if I share with all of you! (Thanks Erin!)
