Ice cream adventures

This week has been a week of sitting around and waiting. Our coordinator brought us back from the beach in the hopes that the kids passports would be issued and we could finish some of the paperwork for travel. Unfortunately, no luck. So we stayed at the Regency in Accra (which is a very nice hotel) where we started to feel trapped in a repeating cycle of events. I'll write more about those later (once the kiddos have food in their bellies and are more patient for Mommy on the computer).

Last night we couldn't take it any more and adventured out to "Frankie's" a restaurant in the Osu section of Accra. After a dinner of delicious pizza -- wish I had taken some photos of Edward and Lydia's faces when they realized that was dinner -- we had real ice cream (the hotel stuff has a funny taste, like Parmalat). Here is the photographic evidence of our fun:







Per special request by Daddy, here is a photo of me and the kiddos, just finished shopping at the Global Mamas store -- fair trade goods made by local women. What a great cause to support, and more Christmas shopping (and a dress and necklace for myself) done in the process!
