Spending a Day at the San Gabriel River

Hey there friends.  You know what the tough part of having a birthday on a holiday is?  It has to be better than just a regular birthday.  My daughter's birthday is July 4th, the same as America's birthday, and every year we try to make it just a little more interesting for her.  This year, we decided to take her and the kids to the San Gabriel River.  Just a short drive away from downtown Los Angeles, the San Gabriel River runs though the Los Angeles Forest.  The wife and I both went there as kids and thought that it would be great to go and take the kids to a spot that we visited back in the day.

Babies, Babies Everywhere! Time to Stock up on Awesome Baby Gear!

Rockin' the skulls and the mummy
Hey there.  You know, when the wife and I found out that we were having a little one a few years back, one of the first things we decided to do is look for awesome baby hats and baby beanies.  You need to keep your baby warm and we didn't want to settle on a blah looking hat for our son.  Why mention this?  Well, because a few of our friends recently had babies and I'm hoping that they managed to grab some awesome cool baby hats!  For our son, we manage to find a black and red stripped hat and a black one with a skull on it.  They were definitely out of the norm but the hats were an extension of my wife's and I's personality and if you had great hats like that, it would definitely make your baby look cool!  Just take a look at my boy and I dare you to tell me he doesn't look awesome.  lol

Motivational Monday - Food Fight

Let the food war begin!

Wouldn't it be Great to Live in Hawaii

Hey there. I'm jealous of my cousin.  Through hard work and perseverance, he has managed to land residency in the island state of Hawaii.  Yup, the place that many call paradise.  I've seen some of the pictures that have been posted on his Facebook page and the scenery is just breathtaking.  I'm a sucker for good scenery and from the stories that I have heard, Hawaii is the place to go.  Especially when you hear that the sunsets are to die for.  I still owe my wife a honeymoon (married 7 years now) and I want to take her there to make it up to her.  Who knows, maybe we'll love it so much that we'll start looking to take residence there too.  I'm sure that real estate in Hawaii is prime real estate and be tough to land, but a guy can dream, no?
