Ellie had her face painted at the annual ASK 5K which benefits pediatric cancer at MCV hospital where Ellie had her surgeries
who doesn't love the ice cream man? Me, that who!! This guy comes in the neighborhood everyday blasting his ice cream music and driving 2 miles an hour. His van slightly grosses me out so we never buy from him... also... don't think he can read the NO SOLICITING sign at the beginning of our neighborhood. I sound like a crotchety old lady but this guy just bugs me.
Ellie and our other friend Jake. He's grown on me so much more than the canine Jake. Jake was the first person I ever knew to have brain cancer. He lives in our neighborhood and that was almost 10 years ago. He is a true inspiration to us and is now a freshman at Virginia Tech. Go Jake!!
