Rocket Donuts is this really cool little retro themed doughnut shop in our town. The walls are covered with old Sci-Fi posters. I’ve been planning to ¬†take Apollo there for a photo shoot since he was born.

It’s taken this long because I wanted him to be big enough to eat a doughnut…and by his first birthday any eating brought on screaming and crying…by two he had his g-tube placed and barely ate at all. Now that he is eating a bit more by mouth I decided the time was right- especially with five of my little ones in school.042413_2295 blog

I have come to appreciate adventures spent with just my “big kids” and Apollo. Adalia was at school and Judah was working, so it was a small crew I took.

Apollo selected a doughnut with pink frosting and sprinkles- which he of course just pretty much ended up scraping with his teeth. I don’t think he did any actual eating.rocket doughnuts, large family, apollo xiv, heart warrior, tubefed toddler rocket doughnuts, large family, apollo xiv, heart warrior rocket doughnuts, large family, apollo xiv, heart warrior

 Enoch had no trouble eating his doughnut.

Spring has arrived in our little corner of the world and it fills my heart with *joy*.
