The answer you've been waiting for

So in case you've ever wondered if you could make Blue maui Snowcones some high school flashback moment....

The answer is:
Not a good idea.

Just trying to save you the time and effort!
I know you were wondering!
(and how funny that a friend actually had blue maui at her house!)

I would however strongly recommend getting a snow cone machine!
I found one on clearance just today,
which of course turned into a "hey let's have snow cone night at the Calahan's,"
text a few friends
and ta da
snow cone night!

...and the snow cone flavoring is much better!
Stick with that...again just sayin'
in case you've wondered!

Tonight (like other nights) I again was reminded
that "you" can have your big city, fancy cars, bright lights,
I will take my small town~ snow cone night ~
which grew into 4 adults and 6 kids in one mini van watching tractors pack silage at the Dairy.
And to our surprise and delight one of the big 'ole tractors pulls up and says "kids want a ride?"

UMM yes, yes they would! (So would mom actually!)
However, I am not so sure he realized that there were 10 people inside one van,
but hey he asked and out piled the many kids!

as the night came to an end, Aubree was planning her "snow cone birthday party" where Cohen volunteered to come work and say "Frrreee Snow CONES!" and Cohen was figuring out how he could ride in one of the choppers tomorrow....
 both agreed it was "the best night ever!"

A clearance snow cone machine
and free tractor rides......
yup this is my life
isn't it great...
these moments are the moments I live for
these moments are the ones that make all the "other" moments worth the effort/heart ache/stress
These moments are
They're our life.

"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want." ~Margaret Young

(Wow now that is difficult but so true....what a process!)
