Liv’s Lemonade Stand

Hello There, I finally have a moment to catch up after a busy last few weeks. Liv has been requesting to have a lemonade stand for months but we wanted to wait until it was closer to summer.

He doesn’t have the time to paint like he used to so when he does finish a painting, it’s a big deal.
