These raspados also lacked the familiar cone shape JJ remembered.
On the drive home I realized that I had pictures from SS's first piragua in Puerto Rico. I jokingly refer to it as the most expensive piragua ever, since it was the focus amd highlight of our trip last year. I was so sad when we departed P.R the first time, because we were unable to get a freaking piragua. I was determined to introduce SS to that beloved part of my childhood. JJ had already had the pleasure when he was 12 and spent a month on the island.
Since I barely posted from P.R. I did not get to document our first trip without the Ergo. Man that carrier was such a lifesaver. I really missed it in Atlanta when they changed our departure gate and we had to take the train to the opposite side of the terminal. SS did well, but it's so convenient to just place the kid in and have both hands free. It also signified a big change for us, my baby was growing up. That stung a little because I really enjoyed having SS so close to me. It's difficult to think about next month and know the Ergo won't be coming along. P told me that SS really loved her Ergo time as well. He thinks she would gladly get in it if I asked. Nah, SS is a big girl, and it's time to allow her to move on and gain independence.
Now this is how it's done!
SS went for it, the much parent dreaded sugar rush/brain freeze.
Now we have all had raspados in So Cal and shaved ice in Maui. We need to get P a piragua sometime in the future. This post makes me happy because there's shaved ice in our immediate future. And sun, sand, seafood, sunscreen, snorkels, condo with two pools, actually visiting a beach...
