what dreams are made of…

May 24, 2011

This morning, Melinda and I decided to take the kids to Shipley Do-Nuts for the first time.  If you aren’t from the South, you don’t understand what an intregal part this little do-nut shop plays in ones childhood.  Some of my fondest memories from being a kid were waiting for my dad to walk in the door every Saturday morning with my and my brother’s favorite do-nut picks while we watched The Muppets.

It felt only fitting to pass this tradition on to my child…

And now for one of my finer parenting moments…please don’t ask.

    It is pretty much impossible not to ask….what happened?!! =) I’m sure it is a funny story, in retrospect of course! My favorite is the one with them holding hands. What fun!

    I totally feel the same sense of nostalgia about mom & pop donut shops from childhood. Ours were Mighty Fine Donuts and another one called H&K.

    There’s really nothing that compares here in Minneapolis, and it grieves me.

    By the way, the cousin pictures are too much! Adorable babes.
