The Daily Donut Year 2- Mom's Birthday June 13th


HAPPY

BIRTHDAY

MOM!!!



June 13th is the birthday of my Mother, Joyce Nichols. This is how she looked when we told her actual age! WOW! She loves to go to the Texas Roadhouse(http://www.texasroadhouse.com/)  at 107 East Cedar Lane in Fruitland, Md because her favorite clown(don't your Moms have a favorite clown?), Sunshine(http://www.sunshinetheclown.org/) is there making balloon art, cracking jokes, painting faces, and basically spreading mirth and merriment! Good Times!!

Sunshine is an excellent balloon artist! She even has her own little air compressor strapped to her back! WOW!



Nathan got a balloon sword! Unfortunately, it burst in the parking lot. DARN!










Mel and Shel and our own"Sweet Caroline" being "TOO CUTE", as just comes naturally to them!













The kids all got snakes painted on their arms! Gnarly!


Mom's Birthday Cake!! If we had put the correct amount of candles on, the fire alarms and sprinklers would have gone off!



After several attempts, the candles were finally blown out!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM/GRANDMA!



You know I cannot celebrate a birthday without DONUTS! The above lovelies are from Bayville Bakery(302-436-2220) at 37238 Lighthouse Rd just west of Fenwick Island, DE. These yeast raised donuts are BIG and FLUFFY! Honey Glazed, Marble Frosted, Creme Filled, and that Boston Creme must have weighed 5 lbs! Just full of delicious Boston creme!



An Elephant Ear! This light crispy cinnamony treat brings back memories of  Hooks Pastry Shop in the Old Salisbury Mall! Just one of many fresh baked goods available from the chefs at Bayville Bakery! Check them out on Facebook!

EAT HAPPY!

The Daily Donut Year 2- BRF Birthdays and Grandma Barbara's Visit

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKEY-D AND CAROLINE!

At BRF (http://www.bethanyresortfurnishings.com/), we love to celebrate birthdays! Singing, cakes, funny group cards, and DONUTS! What could be more fun, and it just makes the work day HAPPIER! The first week of June we celebrate the births of our go-to party girl, Sweet Caroline( see Donut Day 9) and our designer extrordinaire Mikey-D( see Donut Day7). This year I decided to make donut faces with some grteat donuts I found at(believe it or not) WALMART!



 Caroline's Sweet Donut Face is constructed of three donut types all from the Walmart(http://www.walmart.com/) at 409 N Fruitland Blvd in Fruitland, MD(410-341-4803). The donuts are one of the few things at Walmart that are made in the good old USA, but that will be a subject of another blog so just enjoy! All of the above are fresh, fluffy, yeast raised donuts! The eyes are "pretty in pink" with sweet pink glaze, the delicate nose is a "cool" triangle donut with my favorite "sweet angel" creme inside, and last is the wide long-john smile with pink striped vanilla glaze and also filled with that de-lish-us angel creme! SWEEEEET!



Mikey-D's Monkey Donut Face is an all CHOCOLATE extravaganza! The eyes are honey-glazed chocolate cake donuts, the nose is another triangular(aren't they cool?!) shaped donut topped with chocolate frosting and filled with delicious angel creme, last is the long john smile with chocolate frosting and filled with Boston creme or as Shelby calls it, "pudding."

We had a special guest this week! Grandma Barbara came from Silver Spring to attend the awards ceremonies at Carter, Blaine-o, and Chloe's schools. Wednesday after school let out we all tried to beat the heat at Roaring Point on  the Nanticoke River, I spent many Summers neear here as a kid at Waterview(also on the Nanticoke. Check out these cool pics!

Kayaking on the Nanticoke!
Coming back to shore- did someone bring DONUTS!

Grandma Barbara got to see her Nats' Number One Draft Pick -Bryce Harper, the 6 million dollar man, when his Suns played our local Delmarva Shorebirds!(http://www.delmarva.shorebirds.milb.com/)

Chloe and Shelby would rather ride the Merry-Go-Round!


Maple Bacon Ice Cream Sundae! Now that's what I'm talking about!

EAT HAPPY!

We miss you Mandy!

The Daily Donut Year 2

WEIGHT UPDATE:
  Well, it has been a crazy year. I have eaten many more than 365 donuts(I could never eat just one). I weighed in this morning at 170 lbs, just one pound more that when I started last June 1st. I have not had a haircut in a while, so anyone who has seen me lately may agree that the extra pound of weight is on top of my head.
