You did what?

Vista Verde Ranch, Colorado Luxury Ranch

Last week my daughter spent an afternoon playing with some kids who were visiting our luxury guest ranch with their family (names withheld to protect their entrepreneurial identities). That night, and for days after, she kept talking about wanting to have a lemonade stand and sell drinks to the guests. I just blew it off as random six year old talk until a cup showed up on my desk, filled with $1′s and a note saying “for the staff”. I asked Hannah if she knew what it was, and she said, “Yes, sure, it was from the kids last week selling drinks to the guests”. What? I’m sorry, did I hear that right?

Apparently, these creative kids (again, still keeping those names private, but Erica, I may have to recruit them for marketing projects going forward) decided to set up a drink stand during our happy half hour and sell slushies (aka Snowdas) to the guests. They got snow from outside the Lodge, and had a selection of flavors for guests to choose. And wouldn’t you know it, they raked in the cash. I even hear that they were using the statement, “It’s a fundraiser for the staff” as their clincher to seal the deal. Yep, you heard that right.

So, thank you to you en genius kids. Not only did we love having you here last week, but now we have $46 extra dollars to help everyone with their gas money getting home after we close for the season! I am still laughing every time I think about it. And my daughter is convinced now that we should be selling slushies to the guests all the time. Oh boy…..

    Ok – I know these kids, and it’s entirely possible they’ll figure out the poo idea! Looks like you folks have a fabulous place out there. I’d LOVE to bring my girls – 25, 14, & 13!
