A Favorite Family Tradition - Donuts With Papa

When I was a little girl, one of my most favorite things to do was go to the local donut shop with my grandpa. I use to tell him that I was going to work at a donut shop when I was older so that I could be his server. I even remember what he would always order...two old fashion cake donuts and a cup of black coffee. I always had a powered sugar covered jelly filled donut and hot chocolate with whipped cream & a maraschino cherry.

I also remember my father taking my sisters and me on "special dates". The four of us would get up early Saturday morning and eat donuts-on-sticks or donut holes and drink orange juice and chocolate milk. The three of us girls always looked forward to those wonderful times with Daddy.

Now that tradition continues with my children and my nieces & nephew. Donut "credit cards" are their favorite things to give Papa.

This morning, the kids and I enjoyed creating more memories with Papa.

Bryleigh wasn't sure what to do with her donut hole...

But once she had a taste...Pop! It was gone!

Hope you enjoyed the photos.

Now go out and create some wonderful memories with your loved ones.
