The picture here is of my two boys (the loves of my life, by the way) at West Coast Customs (WCC) in the LA area. We took a vacation earlier this summer that included a swing through LA. Being the "savage" Mom that I am, I thought it would be fun to visit the place that we, as a family, have been watching on TV for some time now. West Coast Customs is the auto body shop that is site of the MTV show "Pimp My Ride." For those of you who don't know, it is show where Xzibit (a rapper/hip-hopper) and the West Coast Crew take local peeps' rides (translate: cars/trucks etc.) that are badly in need of repare and they fix them up to be "pimpin rides" (translate: really cool cars).
So we drove around for a while "in the hood" and found the site of WCC. Unfortunately, it was a Sunday and the brathas were not working, Xzibit was nowhere to be found. We did however get a few photo ops.
This photo is of Darren next to the sign on the door (which was fortified by bars). It was a brief, fleeting moment on our trip, but I must say was one of the moments when I felt like was really a hip Mom! ( I do acknowledge, by the way that the use of the word 'hip' automatically makes me a dweeb in my kids' eyes/ears).
