Snow Cone Shack Attack

What a success! You wouldn't believe how many people came to Little Dude's Snow Shack! We did spend all morning getting ready for it by passing out fliers and stuff, but never did I think that there would be so many people!

When we counted up the money to see how much he made I couldn't believe it! I just kept thinking "what kind of kid makes $56.25 with selling snow cones for an hour and a half!" Seriously! That is no joke! I can't get over the shock of it myself!

We ran out of flavors on the very last customer. We had to borrow 4 cups or so from the neighbor, and we were almost out of ice, but that was it!




I am tired, sticky, and sun burnt. But mostly I am one proud mother!

Way to go!! Thats over 25 dollars and hour. I think thats great. With the profits you should buy a second machine and make this a weekly event! Thanks for the special invite!

Talk about a little entrepreneur! When he gets a little older, or if you as his parents want to take it to the next level, come check out SnoShack.com, the home of Sno Shack, Inc. We have all the supplies, training, and information about starting and running a successful shaved ice business. Shaved ice really is a gold mine. Good luck!

Wow! You should set him up on 4800 W and make bank. Forget about your regular job.

Wow, great job. I bet that was a lot of fun, and a big accomplishment for him. And what a good mom you are to let him do it. You are amazing!

I cannot believe we have reconnected after all these years! Your kids are adorable (and rich, too, after this little snow cone sale). I can't wait to read through this blog and see what you have been up to. I think I saw your brother on the nightly news (commenting on a tragic death, I think) a few weeks ago. Is that possible?
