Rocket Donuts, Friends, Sunshine and Placentas

Enjoying donuts, sunshine and friends this summer.

It came to my attention recently that 13-year-old Hezekiah had never been to Rocket Donuts.

What?

How can this be?

He’s been to Oregon. To Alaska. To Boy Scout camp. To the Tillamook Cheese Factory.

But no Rocket Donuts? This, my friends, needed to be remedied. Enjoying donuts, sunshine and friends this summer.

As you probably know, the hardest part of going to a donut shop is choosing the one. perfect. donut.

No need to call CPS, he’s holding my cappuccino.

I forced the poor kid to drink fresh, cold water.

Apollo chose a maple bar. He ate about a third of it (yay) and walked up to the counter (all by himself) to request a bag to take the rest home.

Can you believe it?

After eating it was time for Apollo to make new friends. For some reason, his friend wasn’t very responsive.

After donuts, it was time to head out and play with

This is one of Apollo’s buddies from school. I knew his mom and I were destined to be friends when, in one of our very first conversations, she started talking to me about her sister’s placenta and then said, “Do you want to see a picture?” as she whipped out her phone to show me.

I mean, really, I’m a birth photographer after all. Anyone who offers to show me a picture of her sister’s placenta is obviously going to be on my shortlist for BFFs.

I begged this little guy to let me snap a pic of his about-to-fall-out-tooth.

I’m pretty sure that’s the definition of cute right there.

    So what did Hezekiah think about Rocket Donuts?

    • He loved it, of course! After seeing this Jubilee informed me that she has never been there either…

  2. That Apollo is growing like a weed!! I can’t get over it.Imagine how tall he’ll be by the end of summer!! All his baby features are gone.
    i too ,would like to know if Hezekiah enjoyed himself!!

    • I know…the fact that he is skinny makes him looked older too, I think. No baby roundess on him…

Please share your thoughts!
