Obama Hawaii Vacation 2010: President & Daughters Grab Shave Ice (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:


On Monday, pool reports from Hawaii noted that Obama went bowling and played basketball with his daughters and members of family friends the Whitakers, Nesbitts, Ramos and Titcomb families. Afterward, the presidential entourage stopped at Island Snow, a local shave ice cream parlor that the Obamas have frequented often in the past.

Obama, who earlier this year said that he likes his shave ice "straight, no frills" ordered a cherry, lemon, lime and Melona flavored shave ice from the counter.

The president certainly has a sweet tooth: On a trip to the Gulf this summer, Obama ordered ice cream in Panama City, Florida; before Father's Day 2009, the first family headed to local Washington favorite The Dairy Godmother for treats; and the first family often stops at Alley's General Store in Martha's Vineyard for treats while vacationing there.

Take a look at the president in action below.
