Honey, I'm Home

I hitched a ride back to Jersey, the wind was blowing in the right direction and I happened to know some people who could hook me up. This is better known as: I got a ride home with my parents. Here's a photo of my Dad, Captain of his ship, Master of his destiny, Driver of the car.
 There was sooo much traffic, it was the ride that would not end. Thankfully I was to busy farming fish to be worried by such trivial concerns (holla atcha iPad).
 Action shots, whizzaam!

Little known fact: New Jersey is home to oversize lawn chairs (and great deals, I mean come on! How can you not want a tree at buy one get one?!)
 Garden state lives up to it's name! Woohoo Jersey Sweet Corn, may we be reunited one day (ulcerative colitis don't ruin this for me).
I visited a wonderland better known as Sonic for the first time, it was magical.
Hello there pretty, take a ride with me. Is that Oreo I see? I think we'll get along just fine....just fine indeed.
DELICIOUS.
One more shot from the ride home. Truck. Cool! Power lines. Cool!
To everyone who is thinking of the Jersey Shore and Jersey Housewives. Please leave. THIS is New Jersey. Embrace the beauty. Smell that sweet air. I'm home!




The best for last! The absolute greatest reason New Jersey is the best state in the world and Bailey is her name-o. Evidence: Bailey in a sweet embrace with her new monkey toy. This is a portrait of love. Show me a dog cuter than this and I will show you a lie. IT CAN'T BE DONE.

  11. This set of photographs are definitely inspiring. It makes me wanna go up there soon! I wouldn't even mind the traffic, I bet being stuck on the road there is much more pleasant being around those landscapes than all the concrete we're around here in Los Angeles!

  34. Our doggies have the same name!...except mine is spelled Bayley. I have no idea why though. My brother picked the spelling. Your Bailey is very cute. That's an awesome toy that she has.
