First we started out by going to the local donut shop to pick up a dozen donuts for the boys. Of course we stayed for awhile and ate our own sprinkled creations, soaking in all of the child laughter and joy from all of the early risers and their parents. It felt like Disneyland in there, and I remember going to get donuts every Saturday with my Dad and sister, so that my mom could sleep in.
After returning home and hanging out with the boys, sipping coffee and savoring every bite of our new favorite donut shop delights, Avalon and I headed over to our local nail salon. From the moment I mentioned going to the time we arrived at the front door, Avalon was beaming with excitement and couldn't stop talking about it.
The moment we went inside and sat down, she became silent and focused, just taking in every moment of this new adventure she has never experienced before.
When we got home, Loudoun asked why I didn't get a color on my toes. Actually kid, I paid more to have a little white line painted on mine. I guess I acheived the "natural" look.
