Every once in a while I have one of those mom moments that makes me shake my head and wonder what my life has come too. Recently I have been contemplating the many random things I have had to tell my daughters this past summer. These are things that I never thought I would have to say out loud. I thought I would share some of these random thoughts with you guys. “DO NOT lick your sister.” (As she holds her sister’s head in her hands.) “DO NOT head but your father there!” (I think you guys can guess this one.) “Ladies DO NOT show their buts to the neighbors.” (One of my daughters grew a fascination with flashing.) “Ketchup is NOT a food group.” (After the fourth serving of ketchup on her chicken nuggets.) “Why did you lick the stove if you saw the pot was boiling?” (I still haven’t gotten the answer to this one.) “No that boy does not have boobies.” (Whispered quietly so as not to embarrass ourselves as the really chubby guy is still in ear shot.) “Yes one day you will have boobies.” (After they thought long and hard about the chubby guy with man boobs.) I could go on, but you get the picture. I love my daughters and I think that with time they will only get more interesting.

So the first day of the school year has finally come. I must confess that I am more excited that the girls. The American summer vacation schedule is entirely too long! This was the first school year that Sam and I couldn't be there to take the girls to their first day. I worked nights and Sam is still stuck in Hawaii. I had a significant amount of mom guilt about this, so I went crazy on the school supplies and let the girls get almost whatever they wanted. Then after school i picked them up and to Yogurt Land.(Check out my earlier post on our fav. dessert place). In all honestly the girls could have cared less that i wasn't there because they were happy to see their friends. But, the let me appease my mom guilt through over sugaring them. Then they insisted on taking a picture to send to daddy who is stuck in the airport. (Before you think they are that sweet. . . they really only wanted to show off that they got frozen yogurt). Here are the griddy pictures from my cell phone from our first day.

There is this new is cream place that opened up here. Its called Yogurt Land. Now, we like frozen yogurt just fine, but I was not sure how I would like a place that was only yogurt. Sam and the girls went first. They came home with raving reviews and said I absolutely had to go! So, one festival weekend we decided to go check it out. It was so AWESOME!! (The pictures are kinds gritty because they were on my phone).
There were walls of frozen yogurt machines in every flavor. I picked peanut butter.
There is then all these topping flavors like chocolate chips, strawberry, bananas, and even corn flakes. We all had very unique tastes.
Making it even cooler was that every one was dressed up all cute. During festivals everyone wears their Kimonos. I thought these girls looked really cute.
I must confess. . . it is now our official favorite dessert place on island!
