while in spain…

Monday, June 20, 2011


while in spain, caroline and i managed to convince the boys that we needed to make daily trips to the neighborhood grocery store.  why?  because there was a dunkin donuts inside that neighborhood grocery store.
DSC00617 my go-to donut of choice?  a heart-shaped strawberry frosted donut.DSC00618 also, as sugary cereal doesn’t really exist in germany, we took full advantage of the spanish cereal aisles.
(don’t be fooled by the special k and corn flakes; those were not the types of cereal we were buying.)
DSC00622  oh, and here we are on my most favorite of aisles: the ‘baby pink’ aisle.
these treats, below, are not baby pinks, but they resemble them in size.
DSC00625  i’m not sure how to explain what baby pinks (seen below) are, other than to describe them as tiny, little pieces of heaven (to be served with milk, always).  i guess you could start by imagining a strawberry frosted cupcake with four corners – if strawberry frosted cupcakes typically sold for the price of 13 euro cents each.
with prices that low, how could we not load our carts by the handful each time we stopped at the grocery store?
DSC00627        and here is sergi’s face, upon the realization that he’d been driving us to the grocery store each day for the sole purpose of buying donuts and baby pinks:
girls girls
my only regret?  not filling my suitcase with baby pinks before the journey home.  i’d kill for one of those right about now.  i have milk in the fridge and everything…

I love the name "baby pinks" almost more than I want to try them. What were you thinking not packing your suitcase with them????? You could have mailed me a box of them for an engagement present!!
