Having just purchased Mrs. Muddle's Holidays,
once I found out it was National Donut Day,
I couldn't really let the day slip by unnoticed, could I?
So I grabbed the water bottles and some milk
(and a gallon of frozen milk to keep it all cold)
and threw 'em in a cooler bag.
Stopped in at the Dollar General to get something a bit more substantial than just donuts
and left the store with a pkg of salami and American cheese
(I do believe this is the first time several of my children had that particular delicacy)
and headed to Paul's Bakery.
The selection there was so dismal, that we had to go to FSM.
Figured we may as well try out the new shop.
After loading up on sugary treats
(two to a bag for each person)
we made a beeline for the park and spread out our picnic sheet.
While we lunched,
we watched the ducks.
The longer we were there, the braver the geese and ducks got.
They just wanted to celebrate with us, that's all...
A couple of planes flew overhead so closely that we could see the propellers spin!
After eating, the kids did a little playing
under their big bub's watchful eyes
then it was home again, home again jiggity jig.
Throw caution to the wind, chuck your to-do list (you'll never get everything finished anyways)
and head out to your nearest (stocked) donut shop
and have a happy National Donut Day!
