Awesome Emily Hubbel, The Playground Experience! :)

    On Saturday May 25 of 2013, Virginia Rainbow came together and helped put together a playground for a beautiful little girl named Emily who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, cancer of the nerves, at the age of one.

   This was an awesome experience! First we dug a hole for the main part of the playground, then brought the playground over to the desired area, We put black guard down for the grass and weeds. Once all that was done and all the parts to the playground were put on, we put down the mulch which was a little dirty but fun! Once all that was completed, it was time to prepare for the cookout! We grilled hot dogs, had baked beans, coleslaw, potato chips and brownies. Once the family showed up and we surprised Emily with the play ground. shortly there after everyone was introduced and then it was time to eat! After lunch we sang happy birthday to Emily who's birthday is in four days and she will be 6 years old, the family even shared her cake with all of us, which was delicious. It was a great experience and I am really glad I could be apart of it. 
   The Family also handed out bracelets for all of us! they say "Emily's Journey" and have her website on them:, It would be awesome if you could take the time and check out this awesome little girls website and pray for her and the Hubbel family often.
Thank you all so much!

So Busy!

Hey guys!

I hope you all are doing well! I must say I have been extremely busy lately; working at the new restaurant my boss opened up and now the summer semester for school has started! I am taking a subject very new to me, Phlebotomy. I have not quite figured out what I want to possibly do for the rest of my life, so I have a mini plan to become a phlebotomist and buy myself some time before I make a big decision and spend a lot of money!

Tonight I took my sister out to Petsmart with me to do a little shopping for all the animals in my house, I needed some more food for my hamster, Maybell. I got crickets for our two Bearded Dragons, Sandie and Zuko; and I also got a little play pin for my hamster and my five hermit crabs to play around in to get some more exercise! Maybell had a lot of fun earlier but she got sleepy so she went back in her cage and is fast asleep right now, but the hermit crabs are having a blast crawling all around and exploring the new area!

This is the new play pin and the green protective mat! The crabs are in the right top corner.
Its about that time for bed before work tomorrow at Franco's in Mechanicsville! Hopefully the restaurant gets busy and I can serve lots of people delicious food!

Talk to you all soon! Have a great day and remember to laugh, it makes you feel better no matter what the situation might be!
