You Sunk My Battleship!

And so the totally 80's Spring Break continues. Like I said before, I hadn't intentionally tried to relive my rad childhood, it just kind of happened. Since we had such a fun-filled couple of days we decided to keep our fun at home. I hadn't really planned anything on this day, but Preston had one big thing he wanted to accomlish. Eat donuts! That kid is crazy about donuts. Especially the kind with sprinkles. So what kind of mom would I be if I didn't oblige his crazy obsessions now and then? A no-fun mom, that's what. And since I wasn't getting dressed to actually go buy donuts, we made them instead.

With sprinkles of course. Oh and I ran out of powderd sugar, so I made up a maple glaze with pancake syrup. I wouldn't recommend it, it was really sweet.
But we needed something for the sprinkles to stick to.
Besides what's a little extra sugar to a little boy with lots of energy?

Connor got to eat the holes (sans sugar) and he really like them.

Really, really liked them.

"Hey mom, we need some more holes over here!"

Later Connor took his nap so Preston and I were able to play a little Battleship.

I kept encouraging him to stand up and shout "You sunk my battleship!"
But he just thought I was weird.
Hey, it's how we always played it. And that's how they did it on the commerical. But then again, I never played it while watching opera either.

Later since it was such a beautiful day we headed to the duck pond park where we saw...

a heron...

some turtles...

oh yeah, and a duck. Actually we saw several but this little fellow caught my eye.

Connor plays a little tune.

Now it's time to go home.
