We set off on Friday for Rochester NY for the annual La Familia 4th of July softball game. We went for the first time last year when the boys had a break from baseball and it was forecasted to rain all weekend here in MA. This year, their cousins started texting way back in May and the boys were insistent that we go again. Once we knew their schedules were clear, we decided to make the 6hr drive.
Saturday morning, after breakfast, we got a call from a cousin that another cousin had bailed on a donut eating contest he signed up for AND if one of the boys would like to participate. D said "Why not!" and she said, "Get here ASAP. Contest starts in 15 minutes!" He had cold feet in the car and kept saying he was stuffed from breakfast. We told him to just participate and no problem if he only ate 1 donut. We got there and were told to eat as many as he could in 5 minutes, the rest he could take home. He had a tray of 24 fried cake donuts and cups of cider to wash it down. He was Antonio for the contest and that's the cousin's boyfriend next to him. Results: D ate 1, cousin's bf ate 4 and winner ate EIGHT!!! We took over 3 dozen donuts home to share with the rest of the family and they were delicious.
