My Memorable Memorial Day

BB had no plans for Memorial Day.  As you know, I am currently in Miami visiting La Tata, with no transportation except public transit, which actually isn't a bad way to travel and I wish we had it in my rural town Up North in The South, but the days are getting hotter and the walks between bus stops and final destinations seem longer when its hotter, and those of you who know me know Babushka doesn't do hotter, so before this one sentence becomes a paragraph all by itself, let's just stop it here and say BB had no plans for Memorial Day.

But then there was Feibu. 

Actually, then there was an invite via Feibu from the Hispanicize team to join them at Jungle Island- free admission w/BBQ for a blogger and a family member. Hola!

BB pass up a chance to go out, with family, for food, and for free? JU SO FONII!!
The first RSVP was Babushka's. 

In truth this event gave me a chance to have Friends

Hispanicize Miami Group

BB,Eldest Daughter
La Tata, El Dr., La Princesa

and Fun

El Dr. w/his "Crocodile Live"

lovin' the fros and the dia

For a day I didn't have plans, I couldn't have planned it better.

Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

P.S. What fun reconnecting w/Hispanicize dear friends Farah Mesa & Lynn Ponder, getting better acquainted with Manny Ruiz, Jewel Figueras, and Katherine Johnson while also enjoying the sponsorship/hospitality of Jungle Island y  the Blackberry Tablet demo from Team Blackberry. Oh si,  lots of networking amongst the fun. 

P.P.S.  Team Blackberry, when's your next contest for the tablet?  BB ♥ that WiFi Only!!

To those whose Memorial Day was spent remembering loved ones
who had died for our freedoms,
fuerte abrazos, strength, and mil gracias for the sacrifices made.

Groovy Spanglish speaking Grandma of 6 who loves life and all its adventures. Motivational while still keeping it real, Babushka shows how all things looked at with gratitude are good, and how to say to la vida- JU SO FONII!!!


  1. Looks like a great time. I am loving how you & your fam rocked the fros :)

  2. Oh we did have a great time, we did! Y si,we did look good in the fros didn't we? heje

    Seriously though, the company, the food, the place, it was all wonderful- even La Princesa behaved! Proof right there it was a memorable day. ; )

  3. What a great time! It gets lonely up at these parts. Wishing I could enjoy the Miami heat! Abrazos, BB, y gracias for your sweet, sweet words on my blog yesterday. xoxoxo

    1. It was a great time and I'm sorry you missed it. Pero I know you'll make up for all the Cuban Craziness next time at Hispanicize 2012!! Y el calor? Mujer, wishing I could send you some of this heat so you could enjoy it- truly, I would gladly send some your way if I could. ; )

      And speaking of truly- BB doesn't say what she doesn't mean, so... WRITE THAT NOVEL MUJER!!!


    2. Ok si, I meant to say Hispanicize 2013- though we all know we're still feeling/enjoying Hispanicize 2012.
