Wordless Wednesday: Donut Time

We don't do donuts very often in our house...but recently we read the book Arnie, the doughnut, by Laurie Keller, and the boys loved it. I LOVE this book because there is a ton of humor for adults. 

After reading it I had this vision of taking the boys for a donut - not at Target...but at a REAL bakery. There is only one that I know of nearby here...and their selection by mid-morning was a bit picked over...but there was enough selection for my boys.  All they wanted was sprinkles...just like Arnie.  They each picked a donut and that was their lunch. 
I recommend the book - I recommend letting your kiddos indulge in a donut for lunch - and I recommend doing it in a cute bakery where other customers walk past and say, "awwwwwwwwwww..."

This post is linked to more Wordless and Wordful Wednesday posts at Seven Clown Circus or 5 Minutes for Mom.  Or for some Black and White fun head to The Long Road to China.

And what kid doesn't love a doughnut?! My kids don't get them very often either, but definitely enjoy them when they do.

Popped in from The Long Road to China. I look forward to checking out more of your blog!

I'm so excited about getting this book! (I'm always looking for an excuse to incorporate more donuts in my life!) The pictures are awesome. Your boys are so adorable and they look so content.
