a slice of america

alameda county fair
nothing says America like deep fried funnel cakes, RV demolition derby, bad tattoos, and missing teeth.

the giants have pride


despite the cool weather, the daughter and I are throwing down some ice cream this filipino heritage night.


smoke gets in your eyes


me and daughter smoking it up at the ardenwood farm. the smoke was so thick and smelled so bad, it made our clothes reek.

the calm before the storm


the few moments of calm brotherly love before entering a lego theme park. it’s a little misty here in carlsbad bit still warm enough to sweat chasing the boys. if there ever was an approved occasion to put a leash on a boy, this is the place. it’s a nerdgasm for both children and middle-aged adult males.
