Today was a good day

Hello everyone! I don't even know if any one bothers to come by this site, so it's kind of like I'm talking to myself. =) It's alright though, it's kind of a cool way to keep our memories down.

Today we decided to connect our Qwest DSL, we previously had Cable America (now Cox) for Cable internet. But we kept having issues with our connection with the cable internet, so we said forget it, just connect the DSL and get it over with. I hesitated in connecting it because I didn't know if it was going to be slower than Cable internet. So far it's just as good. I think I'm just naive about the whole thing since I'm not a techie. It took me half the morning to get it working. =)
We wanted to plan on something to do today since tomorrow is a football day and will most likely be spent indoors. ;-) We wanted to keep it cheap since I'm still unemployed, but hopefully I'll be starting soon, probably back at PacifiCare. I don't mind going back, it feels good that my previous co-workers spoke so highly of me. That was nice of them. Well anyways, enough of my rambling....... I found this web site called Go City Kids, here is the web site : I think I heard of it watching Nickelodeon with Isabella. It's a pretty cool website where you can find things to do in your town with your family or anyone you wish because it lists things for all ages. It's a good tool when you don't know the city that you live in that well because you just moved there or maybe you just never ventured out. =) Well, we ended up going to a place called Amazing Jakes here in Mesa. It's a cool place for kids of all ages to play and eat. It's an all you can eat buffet of Pizza (which happens to be Isabella's favorite food), pasta, salads and desert. Not badly priced either for a buffet. Then you get to play all kinds of arcade games, cosmic bowling (black lights), train ride, carousel, tea cups, bumper cars, go karts and tons of other things to do. Isabella had a blast going on the rides. Here is a picture of her on the carousel with daddy.

The picture isn't that great because I can't use my camera to it's fullest because while we were in Ensenada my camera took a dive to the floor and I didn't even know it until I tried to use it again and I noticed that the LCD screen doesn't work. I need to send it in to Canon to have it fixed. It's not even a year old yet so needless to say I wasn't a happy camper when I found out it was broken. Fortunately the camera still takes pictures, I just can't use the LCD screen.

When we got home today I was looking around the things in my night stand and I found a previous digital camera that we used to use and I found the memory card in it and popped it into my computer and sure enough there were two pictures on there. Here is one of them......

This picture was taken Christmas 2004. This was when Isabella was going through treatment for her Neuroblastoma. She was 19 months old at the time of this picture.

I found some more pictures on another memory card.....

This picture was taken Christmas 2005. What a difference a year makes!!! Isabella is cancer free in this picture. What a beautiful smile!! Her uncle Eric and aunt Carla are in the background.

Isabella making a funny face. 99% of the presents you see behind her are for her!! =) She had a wonderful Christmas thanks to her loving Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. This little girl is definitely loved!

Here is a picture of her uncle Edgar playing with her new Buzz Lightyear and Woody toys. I think he was a little jealous of the gift! hehehe I'm only kidding!

Well, I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I hope you all enjoy this site and I promise to keep it up more than I did with the other one. =)
