Stan the Donut Man!!

The January's Kids Day Out was held at Stan the Donut Man's bakery. Stan was so gracious to allow our group to tour and give the kids an inside scoop on how donuts are made. It was great!! Seriously, what kid would not love a morning filled with donuts.

Our tour of this Mom & Pop shoppe began in the kitchen with Stan! He explained how the mixers and equipment worked, how to make icing, and then it was time to play with the dough. The kids kneaded, rolled, and finally cut the dough for donuts. He showed us how to make cinnamon rolls, braids, and twist. Stan was fabulous! The kids loved every minute of the morning. I enjoyed hearing the history of the original Donut Man, his father, and about when this particular location opened.

Then it was time to enjoys some sweet treats! As Holden said, "Now I know why they call him Stan the Donut Man!" Can you tell he liked the donuts?!

What a neat outing with the boys! I love finding special local finds and this one is a gem! I am sure we will be making another visit very soon!
