It looks like this summer is shaping up to be a pretty eventful one for the Jessie Smith family of Preston.

The children of Jessie and his wife, Laci, wanted to buy their older brother Seth, 11, a bicycle so they all could ride together.

Paisley, 6, came up with the idea to put together a lemonade stand. She got the support she needed from her mother, then roped her brother, Dominic, 8, into helping and went to Stokes MarketPlace to get permission to hold it in their parking lot.

Paisley Smith, 6, (l) and her brother Dominic, 8, stand in front of their lemonade stand recently. They came up with the idea to raise money to pay for their brother’s bicycle. Seth, 11, suffers from autism and Fragile X Syndrome.

On Saturday, June 2, the siblings sold over 15 gallons of lemonade to earn $400 dollars to buy Seth, who suffers from autism and Fragile X Syndrome, a three-wheeled bike.
