The Pink Box

You know what I was thinking about last night? A pink box. Well actually not just a pink box but more importantly the pink box. Do you know what I am talking about? If I had a picture I would show you but I don't. The pink box I am referring to is the pink box that donuts come in. A dozen donuts to be exact. A dozen delicious donuts from my childhood.
One of my favorite childhood memories was waking up on Saturday mornings and coming out into the kitchen and finding out Yay! Mom got donuts! My favorite donuts are chocolate bars, and then cake donuts with rainbow sprinkles. I know a lot of people prefer the glazed and Krispy Cremes to be more precise, but I prefer the generic chocolate bar.
I think it must be a San Diego thing too, because in San Diego its like you can find a donut shop everywhere or on every corner, but not really here in Utah. Last night I thought about going this morning to go get donuts, because I think I know where a donut shop is, but then I was too tired to this morning.

Today we tried to have a relaxing day, although it was only a little bit. Aaron has slept through the night till 6am the last two nights, however I have gone to bed so late that I haven't gotten up with him. Just nursed him and snuck him back into his crib for another hour and a half. Although I still felt wiped. I am glad that all of our craziness has slowed way down. I managed to get some laundry done with K's help this morning and did watch How to Marry a Millionaire with Marilyn Monroe while the kids were napping. I also got most of the leg bands on the cloth diapers adjusted with K's help as well. Have I mentioned lately that I still love my cloth diapers. I was telling K just last week that I am so glad I decided to go with cloth. It is more work and some days I do just grab a disposable when I cant get the diapers washed right that instant. But really Aaron does well with them. In fact with all of our traveling and him using the disposables I noticed that he can get like a dry skin rash on his legs. And he has had like 2 diaper rashes in his almost 9 months of life and that was when he was on antibiotics for his ear infections.
The cloth diapers have been a great investment and soon we won't have to buy diapers but rarely because Grace will be potty trained soon. At least I hope!
She is doing great, we have accidents but really it seems only at home when she is busy playing outside or downstairs.
Today we took a walk to the elementary school after dinner and right after we left to come back home she told us she had to go potty. Well there is not potty except at home so she had to hold it and hold it she did! She did great!
K and I are planning on running a 5k in July for our church. I have always wanted to run a 5k and have never done it. Well this one is sponsored by the church and the money goes to funding the new church building. I am excited, and I think some of my playgroup families will be joining in as well!
I am beat got to go to bed. Wendover and Bridal Shower pics to come this week!

There is nothing better than a pink box of donuts on a weekend morning. :) We'll have to get some when you all come out again.
