KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
President Obama spent time with his daughters Thursday, taking them bowling at Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe and then heading for shave ice at their regular spot, Island Snow in Kailua.
The president began his day as he usually does, going to the gym at the Marine Corps base, according to pool reports.
It wasn’t really shave ice weather: skies were gray, the winds were occasionally gusty and there had been some rain. But some people knew what was coming when Secret Service agents arrived and Honolulu Police started blocking off Kailua Road. A few minutes later, just before 4 p.m., the presidential motorcade turned up from Kalaheo Road and into the Island Snow parking lot.
“We came for a shave ice because it was a bit wet on the beach, and shook the hand of the President of the United States of America. You don’t get to do that everyday,” said Nigel Watson, visiting from Melbourne, Australia.
“We were actually in the store and what turned out to be Secret Service knocked on the door and let us out, and then they started roping (us) off, and — yeah, it was a bit of a buzz,” said Watson, just a few minutes after the president’s visit.
“It was fun but it was sort of a surprise, and I didn’t know all those vans were going to come up because they didn’t look like police cars,” said seven-year-old Eloise Weary of Virginia.
The president, dressed casually in a navy blue polo shirt and jeans, stepped out of an SUV, waved at the gathering and headed into the shop.
“All of a sudden he came in and shook my hand,” said Taylor Souza, who started working at Island Snow last summer. “When he shook my hand it felt pretty good, like I got to meet the president, and not that many people get to get that option in their life.”
Obama has stopped in at Island Snow every time he’s been in the islands.
“The first couple of times was super crazy and shocking. And now he walks in the door, it’s like ‘I know these guys.’ Shakes hands with everybody and gets right in line,” said Rich Whaley, an employee who’s been in the store for previous presidential shave ice stops.
First Daughters Sasha and Malia walked out with their shave ice cones, along with other members of the family. Then the president walked out with his regular cone, and stepped toward the cordoned off area where about 30 people were waiting to shake his hand.
Watson was able to get a good snapshot of the president and exchange a few words. “I wished him a Happy New Year, and he wished me a Happy New Year in return,” he said.
The president also shook little Eloise’s hand. “And I’m never going to wash my hand again!” she said.
The whole visit took just about eight minutes. Handshakes done, Obama stepped into the SUV and the motorcade headed back to the Kailua compound where the First Family is staying.
Although the visits are becoming routine, they’re not becoming old hat. “He shakes hands with everybody and gets right in line,” said Whaley. “So he’s getting used to the order of everything and we’re getting used to having the president come by. So it’s really cool.”
The president’s shave ice? According to Souza, “Regular cone, no ice cream on the bottom. Melona, lemon lime and cherry.”

The history of the New Year can be traced back almost 4000 years ago to the Babylonians.
The Babylonian New Year Celebration lasted for eleven days.
Each day had its own particular mode of celebration, but it is safe to say that modern New Year's Eve festivities pale in comparison.
Traditionally, it was thought that one could affect the luck they would have throughout the coming year by what they did or ate on the first day of the year. For that reason, it has become common for folks to celebrate the first few minutes of a brand new year in the company of family and friends.
Parties often last into the middle of the night after the ringing in of a new year. It was once believed that the first visitor on New Year's Day would bring either good luck or bad luck the rest of the year.
So to continue the tradition of spending the first minutes of the New Year with families and friends, why not plan to celebrate New Year’s Eve at JB's on 41.
We have great bowling, food and beverage to spare. We'll party til' we drop with Galactic Bowling with laser lights, fog, disco lights, and great music to dance to. The galactic party starts at 10pm. For only $14.99/person for two hours of unlimited bowling and shoe rental you can't go wrong. Plus, we'll also have champagne bottles, hats, and noisemakers available to start the year off right.
You can also upgrade to Suite 41 for your New Years Celebration for only an additional $3/person. (Min. 4 per lane) ($25 deposit required)
Call us today at 414-281-8200 and continue the tradition
And Have a Happy New Year

In the United States, the modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition is commonly, but not universally, traced to a poorly documented 1621 celebration at Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts in 1621. The Plymouth feast and thanksgiving was prompted by a good harvest.
In later years, religious thanksgiving services were declared by civil leaders such as Governor Bradford of Massachusetts who planned a thanksgiving celebration and fast in 1623. The practice of holding an annual harvest festival like this did not become a regular affair in New England until the late 1660s.
During the revolutionary period, political influences affected the issuance of Thanksgiving proclamations. Various proclamations were made by royal governors, John Hancock, George Washington and the Continental Congress each giving thanks to God for events favorable to their causes.
As President of the United States, George Washington proclaimed the first nation-wide thanksgiving celebration in America marking November 26, 1789, "as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God".
It was not until December 26, 1941, that the unified date changed to the fourth Thursday (and not always final) in November—this time by federal legislation. President Franklin Roosevelt after two years earlier offered his own proclamation to move the date earlier, with the reason of giving the country an economic boost, agreed to sign a bill into law with Congress making Thanksgiving a national holiday on the fourth Thursday in November.
Today, if we are fortunate, we celebrate thanksgiving with our families, friends, turkey with all the trimmings and football.
And now, after the football and after the turkey, families can enjoy the fun of galactic bowling at JB’s on 41 starting at 3pm to 930pm on Thanksgiving Day.
So celebrate thanksgiving and give thanks for the greatness of our country and the joy of being with family and friends. Then c’mon out and let us entertain you at JB’s on 41.
To celebrate our grand opening, we are hosting a grand reopening weekend starting Thursday, November 29 through Saturday, December 1, with activities and can’t-miss-prizes and guests ideal for the entire family.
Thursday, November 29 will be hosting a sports spectacular, complete with prizes and specials for NFL and sports fans of all ages throughout the day. Come by and meet the Miller Lite girls, check out the Thursday night football or college basketball games on one of our 15 big screen TVs.
On Friday, November 30, a Grand Opening Celebration will include prizes, Live Band Karaoke, bowling and food discounts, and a special challenge to our guests. We want to have more than 1,000 games bowled by everyone in five-hour period over their 35 lanes. We’re offering a special price of $2 per game Friday night to try to get all of Milwaukee indoors to help set a new building record for games in one night. Galactic Bowling will also kick off at 9:30 am on Friday. And we’ll also keep the sports theme going with the WSSP Buck’s postgame show live featuring Steve “Sparky” Fifer.
Finally, the weekend will wrap up with a Family Fun Day on Saturday, complete with prizes and activities for the entire family. Saturday’s activities will include face painting, prizes, appearance by local fire departments and marines, and of course a special Dad’s Lounge so dad (or mom) doesn’t have to miss the games.
Throughout our grand opening weekend, we will also be touting our Strikes for Tikes promotion. We’ve partnered with Toys for Tots to help raise money to purchase toys for children in need this holiday season.
For each strike scored Thursday through Saturday, we will make a donation towards the purchase of toys. Guests coming out also can bring new toy to receive a discount coupon good throughout the holiday season.
