An Adventure it is

Had an awesome time in NY. I love the beach. The sand and the ocean. Can never get enough of it. LI is home and always will be. I was a bit sad to leave but excited at the same time. Adventure awaits and I am ready to explore.
We left NY on the 17th headed for GA. Den had a performance to make.
We didn't make it more than 5 min. down the road before oil began sloshing out. Our 5am departure turned into an 11am departure. We were cruising along happily until... the bus decided it didn't want to go anymore. We only made it 3hrs. Stuck on the side of the road in PA.
Finding a place to bring it and getting towed there was not as hard or expensive as it should have been THANKFULLY. Spent the night in a HOT sweaty bus beacause we couldn't run the air. Come to find out in the morning that this is not going to be an easy or quick fix. We need a new engine. GREAT!!! Now I'm really getting sick. Calm down, find a campground for a few days and we will be on our way. Most certainly we will be in GA in pleanty of time for Den's next gig. Well, we did find the most awesome campground run by an awesome couple. Shady Oaks in PA. If your out that way it's a great place to stay.
Turns out we were not getting our bus back for quite awhile. We had no choice but to pack up a tent some clothes and all den's music gear and head to GA. We also had to fit the 2 dogs and cat in the truck. The hamsters have a happy new home in PA. It was NOT a pleasant ride but we did make it.
Can you say HOT?! It was over 100 degrees the first day and hasn't cooled much since we've been here. Fisrt night I got bit by something and woke up with an eye swollen shut for 3 days. Got poured on and flooded the tent twice so far along with an invasion of ants that follow the storm. The flies just won't quit. Sitting in the tent sweltering to hide from the damn flies.Got bit again on the foot last night after all the drama and it's swollen and hurts like hell.
Got a phone call last night, "Can't find Jacque" WHAT? Needless to say I lost my flippin mind. She was at warp tour with some friends and they seperated. She was safely recovered. When I pick her up tomorrow I will count all her fingers and toes, hug her than yell at her and than hug her again. I didn't get to go to warp tour this year but that won't happen again.
This trip has started off rocky and extremly challenging. We are determined to keep pushing through. There has to be a light at the end of this hell. We are all healthy and safe and the kids are having a blast. There are bunnies,turtles,a snake,monitor,skink, and a parrot named Paco that hates me for some reason. Everytime he sees me he climbs down and chases me. I did nothing I tell ya. I'm innocent. The pool has been keeping us cool. Lack of shade has us all pretty tan. It's all good. An adventure it is.

Back to Ga

We plan on leaving New York by this coming wednesday and being in GA by friday. I'm excited, but I'm gonna miss everyone here. My parents got a work camping job at Jelly Stone Park so we only pay for electric. Jelly Stone looks like fun, it's a kids campground, so they have a bunch of cool stuff, I just hope it's not all for the itty bitty little kids. Today my mom and the boys are going clamming, but I have to stay home, because I don't feel good and my dad is staying because he has to work on the bus.

Gaberiel got a store on eCrater too, it's called FunkyJunkyJunk and he plans on selling his little junk thingys on there, some of them are really cool though. He doesn't have anything up yet, but he will soon.

I made my own blog called BeHappyKid. No one else will post there, just me. I just got bored and felt like making a blog, to promote my eCrater store and just to tell people about life on the road. Just because I made my own blog doesn't mean I won't post on this one, because I still will, especially if no one else will.

That's it for now. Bye bye!

Ok bye!

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

4th of july was a couple days ago. It was pretty good. There were literally fireworks going off in every direction, no matter which way you turned there were fireworks. I even heard some going off yesterday. One thing I did really miss was having a big party in the culdesac and doing more fireworks after the big ones at Riverstone. I don't think it's nearly as much fun without friends to wander off with, but either way, the fireworks themselves were great! When we got back mom set off some firecrackers and I thought one flew up and landed in my hair, but instead it was a flipping bug. I have no clue what it was but I pulled it out and jumped off the back of the car screaming at my dad to get it out. I was laughing and crying at the same time and the boys were standing there laughing "Are you crying sissy?"

We've decided we have to get rid of Princess (She's the dog). She's getting kinda pissy. Mom thinks it because she doesn't have the space she used to have to just get away so she's been getting mad and attacking Fido (the other dog) for no reason. I think my mom found a friend on facebook that might take her. but I'm not sure. I hope so. I'm gonna miss her though. We've had her since she was a puppy. I remember chasing her around the backyard when we were litte with bats and my mom would come out telling us we couldn't do it. And we thought it was hilarious. Now that I think about it feel bad though. If I saw Rickey doing that now I would yell at him. I hope she's happy with whoever takes her.

Dad was gonna play a show in the Hamptons, but I think he changed his mind. Now he's gonna play in GA instead because if he were to play in the Hamptons he would be paying them $50 for electricity, but in GA they're paying him. So we're gonna try leaving a week early July 15th. After that he has a wedding show on the 20th I think and I'm going to Warped Tour with some friends on the 26th. I have one band that I absolutely HAVE to see, Pierce The Veil. If you don't know who they are you should definetely check them out, Clicky.

I think that's all the news for now. Dad's working on the pumbing now. We've had gas for a couple weeks. Ok NOW I'm done. Check back soon! Adios!


P.S. I added a new video to youtube

Oh what an eventful day!
This morning right after breakfast the boys started fighting over spots on the couch (no surprise there) and got sent to their bunks for the most of the morning.
Mom and I were gonna go the the bank and walmart today, so we left and went to the bank first. I sat in the car and she went inside, she wasn't even gona 10 minutes when BOOM! (it wasn't really much of a boom) The anti-freeze hose thingy bursts and the car starts smoking. Some guys came over and told us what to do, what we needed and of course how to rig it. Half an our later my dad and grandpa finally showed up and looked and then we went to go get the part. It took us about 3 hours to finally get to walmart.
After we went to walmart I got some ponytail holders and sat on the couch for the rest of the day making bracelets like the ones you'll find here "http://behappykid.webs.com/apps/webstore/" and then I put 'em up for sale.
I made a shop called BeHappyKid and I'll be selling stuff that I make out of boredom and whatnot on there, so you should DEFINITELY go check it out....and maybe buy some stuff? (: It's not really the cheapest, but it's worth it! I promise!
