Our car came to a slow stop next to the local Dunkin' Donuts. The blinker clicked it's morse code signaling our destination. "Dunkin' Donuts, I L-O-V-E Dunkin' Donuts!", came a beaming voice from behind my seat. I craned my neck around to see my son's smile stretching from one cheek to the next. His cheeks started to blush from smiling so big. His eyes were sparkling and I swear that I saw some drool in the corner of his lips.
We nestled our car between two others and splashed through the puddles on our way to the door. The drive-in is awfully convenient but nothing beats the smell when you open the front door. A mixture of sweet icing and roasting coffee beans embraced us as we carefully walked to the cotton candy colored counter. We scanned the shelves full of sugary goodness and made our choices...lemon merinque donut for me with coffee and raised glazed munchkins for my little guy.
Coffee and Donuts with my little guy...the only thing better would be if my older son could join us too. It's going to be a great day!
