It’s Elijah’s birthday and what was suppose to be a father and son trip turned out to be the Rose’s, Gauvin’s, Hernandez’s and who ever else wants to tag along. Yay! Happy Birthday kid. Let’s do this shit up right.

We went to the Museum of Natural History. Not only was this the coolest place to take a little boy for his birthday, but it was also the coolest place for grown ups to go on any day.

They even had a whole section dedicated to the dopest people that ever lived.


We took a shit ton of photos of dinosaur bones and what ever else caught our eye.


Taking a photo of my hubby.

Seriously, look at the size of the dinosaur compared to us. Kinda glad they’re not around anymore.

Bea’s in training.

So afterwards we headed for the next coolest place to take a kid on their birthday, F.A.O Schwarz.

It was a pretty night for a walk.

I’m a thinker.

And a fighter.

And then we went to one of the raddest places to eat, especially if your a vegetarian, Pukk.

We’ve been here for almost two months now, how are we just finding out about this place?

Awe, I think baby Judah likes Pigg.

We passed baby Judah around for a photo shoot.

Toy Tokyo was next.

I like Pigg.

I like Boe-Bot too.

The boys are waiting outside while the girls get some sesame covered chocolate balls. Yummy!

Back at the subway on our way back home.

Elijah can’t wait to play with his new toys.

And this is where Sue and I almost kicked the shit out of a classic douche bag inside of Cold Stone Creamery. What a fucking asshole he was.

The next day a ninja attacked Elijah.

But he fought back.

Our car got broken into.

Yes you heard that right. On the day Ray and I planned on going home, someone breaks into our car to steal my boyfriend Tom Tom. Now who am I to talk to when I drive? Well I guess things could of been worse. At least they didn’t steal the car. Sad window on the ground.

Well I guess we’ll be heading to the city with all of you.

The champion. Can I get some Rocky music please.

Nothing like vegan dim sum to start the day off.

Kid Robot is expensive but very cool.

It takes two men to change one diaper.

Back at the sub way.

The next day was a very sad day because Ray and I packed our bags and headed back home after two months. Living with Bea and Guav was awesome. There’s not a lot of people I can live that long with but with them it was more like living with family. I miss cooking with Bea and waiting for Guav to come home because he was always the last to get in. Meeting the Roses was a treat. They are definitely my new favorite peeps. I just wish they lived closer because I could use more friends like Sue around. I would totally kick the shit out of anyone with her. I love all of you and thanks for an awesome experience.

Bea got some new appliances to go with her new home.

Awe, I miss her delicious cooking.

It was so sad to see him go but I’m just happy he ended up staying a week longer than he originally intended to. I pleaded for him to stay but then I thought about it and since we’ve moved to Texas we see Kuya Ben more than anyone else these days so I’m not so sad anymore.

I think we had a pretty fun filled time during Kuya Ben’s stay. Bea made some delicious spring rolls and all got hands on training on how to roll. We were rolling with the homies, get it . . . rolling with the homies. Yeah, anyhow . . .

Bea – “Please Kuya Ben don’t go.”

Ray – “Fuck you Kuya Ben.”

Ray’s on his way out the door. Guav and Bea stay behind to clean their beautiful new home.

Peace out Kuya Ben. We’ll see you in Texas soon I’m sure.

Yay! It’s game night. Tonight we play Dallas Monopoly. The last time I played monopoly was a long, long time ago and if you’ve ever played monopoly then you’ll know that you’d better not have any plans afterward because it’s a long ass game. And if you don’t negotiate properties, as you see Bea doing here, then the game will only be even longer.

Kuya Ben stop being such a dick and just trade with Ray.

Guav made everyone use the dice on his iPhone.

He also had to kick like a cheerleader or pay 50 dollars.  He kicked like a cheerleader and even gave us a cheer – “Whose the best, B-E-A, Bea. Yay!” It was more than we bargained for.

First Ray was out, then Bea, and then Guav. Finally it was down to me and Ben. Ben had a good strategy, he just stayed in jail most of the time so he didn’t have to pay while everyone just landed on his property.

The game lasted a really really long time. But in the end I am champion with almost 9 thousand dollars left.

Awe, I wish I brought my wedding dress. For now on ever time Bea and I visit each other we must bring our dress so we could hang out all day in em. That would be awesome.

The weekend went by oh so fast. I guess when your hanging out with Jack there’s just never enough time. Before dropping her ass off at the airport we had one last family meal together.

My friends like to have coffee in the morning.

Ben is cute.

Showing off my new glasses that Bea gave me. One perk of being Bea’s friend is that she has a lot of accessories and she’s very generous.

Ray and Bea

Hummm, should I have pancakes or waffles?

My friends like to smoke after breakfast.

Help, I got a splinter in my foot.

Thanks Bea.

I have no idea what Kuya Ben is doing.

Now we’re off to the airport.

Before you go here’s a business card. Have your people call my people.

Farewell Jack, we wub you.

In New York the possibilities are endless. So when it comes to things to do, it’s best to always have some kind of idea of what it is you want to do. Today we had big plans of having a picnic in Central Park, rowing in boats and of course playing by ear because what’s meant to be will always find a way… All I know is that whatever happens today, it’s gonna be a fucking blast.

Everyone is on there way to the Light Rail. Oh, and you know we had to bring Lil Kola Bud with us too.

In the subway.

Guav – “Stop hurting my Kuya Ben, Ray.”

We made a quick stop at Whole Foods for some picnic food. I got kicked out because I had Kola with me and Bea being the sweet pea that she is came with me so I didn’t have to wait alone. Me being the bitch that I am left her with Kola and went back in to get some food.

It was a gorgeous day today, perfect for a picnic in the park.

Apparently we weren’t the only ones that were out today. The park was full of energy and life.

Kuya Ben really gets in the zone when he eats

I’m happy.

So is Guav.

Kola too.

Snuggle time.

After our picnic we take a stroll through Central Park and walk right into a roller rink right in the middle of the path. It was totally random.

Seriously, there were all kinds of characters skating here today. I love eccentric people.

It was pretty packed at the park today so my family stood on top of a rock so they can check out all the action.

We keep on keep it on down the path and I spot a rainbow dude in a dress and a very big beard talking to 3 guys. WTF?

He even had a dog to match.

I still think Ray and Kola are way cuter.

We also came upon a group of kids and hula hoops. I had to stop and show those brats how it’s done.

Now we’re on our way to the boats. I can’t wait to start rowing. We’ve already decided that it’s gonna be the boys against the girls and they’re going to get their asses handed to them.

The sexy ladies.

Dun da da dun . . . FUCK YEAH!

How pretty is this. Day’s like this make me love life.

I love Ray too.

Ahh Shit! We didn’t make it in time, the last boat took off at 5:00. We’re just too slow. No worries. This is where we just play it by ear . Today we are travelers today and go where the wind takes us.

I think Guav loves Kola.

I think Bea loves Kola too.

Ben and Bea climbed a rock just to take a photo. Dun da da dun, FUCK YEAH!

We left the park and cruised the wild streets of New York. Lots of taxis.

New York has a lot of interesting things to look at.

Doan – “Hey you, stop taking photos of me and my friends. Let’s get him Jack.”

We’re gonna kick your ass!

Lots of high buildings around here.

Awe, I think they love each other.

Time Square is amazing at night.

Elmo hates Kuya Ben.

Of all the places we decide to go we pick Toys R Us.

I don’t know what this is on my head, but it feel magnificent.

Guav – “Hey man, you think you can stop taking photos of me and little dude, Your fucking with my reputation.”

Spider Man hates Jackie.

There’s always someone sleeping on the subway, today it was Ben.

It was getting late so we headed to Hoboken to grab a bite to eat and play Skip-bo, a card game Jack got me into.

Quit checking out my cards you cheater.

I don’t think Guav would function without his iPhone.

And then we all went home. Good Nite.

The book I’m reading right now.
