Welcome to Day 24 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.
Today we are going to continue with the photos from the Donut Trail.
After Kelly’s Donuts, we went to downtown Hamilton. We found the mural dedicated to Robert McCloskey.
Here are other photos of downtown Hamilton. Some of the architecture is interesting so I quickly snapped photos as we drove by the buildings.
Next up was Martin’s Donuts in Trenton.
It was a cute pink building.
Our last stop was Milton’s Donuts in Middletown. It was the closest donut shop to our house.
The boys wanted Buckeyes instead of donuts, so we allowed them to get the Buckeyes.
We had a lot of fun doing the donut trail.
What a wonderful way to enjoy a beautiful fall Saturday.
Mom and I went on a big grocery shopping this weekend so I was able to menu plan for the next two and half weeks. Yeah, me!
