How is everyone today?
While this might be our last day here in NYC for this trip we still have lots of vacation left to go!!
We will be heading out to JFK this afternoon and then onward to London.
10 Awesome Free Things to do in London
A London Trip to Remember
Of course we are excited about the next leg of our journey, but I'm not one to rush days/hours or minutes, and for the rest of the morning and until we leave, we will be hanging out at home with my grandma and dad.
The highlights from yesterday were of course getting together with Elisa and the girls at a couple of our favorite Williamsburg (Brooklyn) Vegan eateries - Dun Well Donuts and Champs Diner!
After having dessert first...
The gang began to get a bit peckish and since Champs Diner is literally only a block away, since Elisa and the girls had yet to try this famous vegan diner that is frequented by worldwide vegan travelers - it was an easy decision for us to make!
Champs Diner it was...

After catching up and briefly touching on the October plans for Cosette's 18th birthday trip to be celebrated in Las Vegas - also the next time we reunite with Elisa and the girls. It was time to start moving again and begin making our way back "home" to meet up with another cousin (Gregory) and head to the Bronx.
But before that, next up was Elisa and I making a little video. After some funny out takes we have a new video clip that will be shared by Elisa...
When it's posted be sure to take a peek and let us know what you think!
Next up was getting back to grandma's house and then mentally prepared to sit in rush hour traffic on our way to Yankees Stadium with cousin Greg.
But first...some silly pictures:
I was dressed in Yankees gear from head to toe and thus some of the gang wanted to grab pics of us to share with other Yankees fans in the fam.
And off we went...
Then it was game time and ohhhhh what a game it was!!!
Fun and exciting and the best part was that even though one of our pitchers (I won't name any names) gave up a grand slam bring the score from 10-3 up to 10-7 and bringing the energy of the crowd down. But by the top of the 9th the score was 10-8 and when there were 2 outs, we were all on our feet in anticipation of the last out and the win!!!
And the crowd all cheered and Frank Sinatra played - watch the video below:
The game was fairly long and then it was time to head home. We were already in a great mood and in the mood for some more Frank and of can we forget Dean (Martin). Then crooned us, as we sang along on the ride back.
Wired from all the energy, we were all up rather late.
It's about time to for us to get ready and all packed up.
More from London starting tomorrow.. I'll see you from the UK!
Ciao 4 now,
Fun in Brooklyn with the Cousins
Hey there and greetings from Long Island!
It's a wet one here today. I must say that fortunately, when it's not raining, it's truly lovely, so I'll take the rain anytime for the glorious days that we get in between!
And speaking of glorious days, yesterday was one of them - not just weather-wise, but, because the "Travelin' Cousins" managed to slip in an afternoon together while Tanya and gang was here in NYC!
We all met up in Williamsburg at around noon with our first stop being Dunwell Doughnuts, one of our fave vegan places in all of Brooklyn!
No get cousins' get together would be complete without some vegan doughnuts and some catching up at this famed sweet destination!
Realizing after having dessert that we all needed some main course sustenance, we took a quick walk around the corner to Champs Diner, Brooklyn’s favorite all-vegan diner!
This was a first visit for me and my girls, but, of course, my dear cuz has frequented this vegan foodie destination many times.
What a lunch we had!! And we each took some yummy goodness to go, as well!
Here is our delicious meal in pictures!!
Tanya and I also managed to do a short video clip for our Travelin' Cousins Media Kit...
After a fun-filled afternoon, Gianna and I headed to the gym to work off the tons of yummy food we ingested all day!
Of course, we rewarded ourselves with a dee-lish beverage after doing our exercise!
Did you enjoy Tanya's fun pics before and after the Yankee game last night? Lotsa fun!
Off to enjoy the day!
