Flying brave at the fashion show


               
 
 
 


 
          The Fly Brave Foundation is an organization that helps kids with Autism by training them to become adults and have jobs. The reason why I'm talking about them because I was a model at the Fly Brave Foundation's fashion show on September 10th at the California Auto Museum. At the show, I was the Barbershop singer with the cane singing the barbershop song, Chordbuster March. Before my segment, I had the privilege to talk to the models of the show and their families, about their interests and what my interests are. It was a very fun experience meeting all the people and singing to them. The models at the fashion show were an A's fan, a butterfly, a cowgirl, a runner, and many other kids with fun outfits and personalities.  Tony Lopez from CBS 13 News was at the fashion show.

 The Fly Brave Foundation wants to help kids with autism build social skills, confidence and friendships.  Mrs. Vanessa Bieker is the founder of the Fly Brave Foundation who has a son that is non verbal that loves to run and is working on qualifying for the Boston marathon.  It was an entertaining experience being a model at the fashion show!!

Sleeping after rockin' in Wexford, Pennsylvania


 
While my family and I were on vacation, we stayed at a brand new hotel called the Hampton Inn in the small town of Wexford, PA, 20 minutes north of Pittsburgh. The hotel is located at 2622 Wexford Bayne Road west of Interstate 79. During our stay, we toured Pittsburgh  and attended the Christian parody band ApologetiX's 25th Anniversary concert.   I was very happy to stay in a nice, new hotel with sweet customer service. At this Hampton Inn location, the amenities are:

·        88 rooms which have a 42 inch TV, mini fridge, a Cuisinart coffee maker, a nice chair and table to work on, free Wi-Fi access, and  their clean Hampton beds.  All 100% non smoking.

·        Free breakfast

·        A Pool and Fitness room

·        Business Center

·        Lobby

·        Meeting rooms

This new hotel opened on April 6th of 2016 to serve guests north of Pittsburgh in the Wexford/Ross Township area. If you're looking at visiting Pittsburgh and want a country setting, this hotel would be a good choice.

A relaxing visit to a beautiful local coffee shop!!







                    This week's blogpost is about a local Coffee shop My mom and I visited called the Cameron Park Coffee and Deli. It's located at 3161 Cameron Park Drive in Suite 106 across the street from the Airpark in the shopping center with Thai House.

           This coffee shop serves:

·         Breakfast- muffins, bagels, and breakfast sandwiches (their Carrot cake muffin won Best of Show at the El Dorado County Fair)

·         Lunch and Dinner-sandwiches, burritos, and salads

·         Drinks- coffee and smoothies

My mom and I recently visited this encouraging and uplifting coffee shop. I thought it was encouraging because they have bible verses that help lift us up like Ephesians 2:4-5,

             Because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, Made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in our transgressions it is by grace that you have been saved.

      They also have some beautiful artwork at the shop from local painter Joe Banaut. Kind and personal, the owner Mrs. Lona Wheeler shared her story about how God provided this coffee shop opportunity. In November 2014, The Cameron Park Coffee and Deli shop opened its doors for customers.

 Their hours are:

·         Monday-Friday  6:00am- 7:30pm

·         Saturday 8:00am -3:00pm

·          Closed on Sunday

It was exciting to visit this coffee shop and to see what they have. I would love to visit this shop again soon and I hope you can visit it also!! 

" Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."                         Matthew 20:28

A cute experience at a local new Vintage Market!!




A few days ago, My mom and I went to the new  Heartland Vintage Market store in Cameron Park on its grand opening day on May 5th. The shop is located at 3460 Robin Lane ( the road between Sizzler and the car wash) in Suite 12 of a local office building. At this new market, they sell Vintage Antique furniture that inspires creativity. Once inspired, they'll encourage you to take art classes for you to create beautiful furniture! I really like the atmosphere of the store with all their furniture, signs, old post cards of all the places in America (which was my favorite thing at this store), and last, but not least, their very kind and personal customer service. I believe this store would entice Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper to shop here.
Heartland Vintage Market is open on:           
Friday from 12 PM - 7 PM                                                                                                                                                                           
 Saturday from 9 AM - 5 PM                                                                                               
 Sunday from  11 AM - 4 PM
If you visit this store, may Your visit be a fun  and delightful!!

We've been there a few times since it first opened and  it has been a positive experience shopping at Sprouts.

My amazing trip to the Sierra mountains!!


               
 
 
 
 
                      One Saturday in March 2017, My family and I finally visited the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains!   The reason why we went was that I wanted to see all the snow the mountains  have received so far this winter.  Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling good because of my sickness.  But I still wanted to see the mountains before the snow melted.  So at 10:00 am on Saturday March 25th, We began our journey to the mountains!!  Before I went to the mountains, My family and I stopped to eat lunch at the Auburn In N Out Burger , which was simple and tasty.  After lunch, we traveled on the gorgeous highway which has spectacular mountain views, beautiful pine trees of different kinds, snow surpassing the roof tops, and rushing rivers and creeks from all the snow.  At 1:30 PM, We finally arrived in Truckee, which is a small railroad town in the mountains. We walked in their cute downtown and stopped by a couple shops.  One was a modern coffee shop called the Coffeebar, which we stopped at to buy tea and coffee for our family to drink.  Then we headed to our next destination,  the Northstar ski resort.  Warm and welcoming, the resort with the entertaining central lodge, challenging ski courses,  deep snow, and amazing views of the valley below, made me want to ski. After we drove through the ski resort, on our way home, the sunny sky darkened and snow started to fall from the sky.  When all was said and done, the trip was fun and relaxing, yet it was not because I was sick, but we were able to see the beautiful mountains!!

                           Thank You for reading about my trip and may the Lord bless you!!
