Maria's 11th Birthady

Well I have to admit this is kind of old news, but I took pictures to post on my blog so I figured I might as well post about it still. A couple of weeks ago my computer had to go in for repairs, so I was with out a computer for about a week, so that is a good excuse for being behind on my posts right?
Maria turned 11 on the 15Th of this month, and to celebrate her birthday we went to the family fun center in Wilsonville They have a lot of arcade games, mini golf, race cars, bumper boats, and batting cages. The kids had fun. We played a round of mini golf. This was a bit challenging with a 2 year old. He didn't quite grasp the concept and kept picking up everyones ball and relocating it. But we soon found that as long as he had a club and ball in his had he was a happy boy.

The birthday Girl

This picture turned out so cute I thought I would post it too.

So after a round of mini golf in the hot blazing Oregon sun, the girls thought they were about to die! So they all voted to ride the bumper boats. I would have loved to have gone too, but Hayden was to young to ride along, so I sat out and took pictures of all the fun. They had a blast!

Sean was working when we went to the Family Fun Center, so we also went to the Olive Garden as a family for her birthday. We had several gift cards, which covered most of the cost, so that made it even nicer. She had a nice birthday, and it was great to spend a little time together.

I'm cracking up here! Blazing hot Oregon sun? Oh, I know... you mean that two hour hot spell we had back a few days ago? I love that! Seriously I'm with your girls, I can't handle the least bit of heat either, I would have headed for the bumper boats too. I'm glad you had such a fun day with your kids and we hope to see you in a few weeks!

That looks and sounds like a lot of fun. I can hardly believe that your kids are getting so big. Adrianna (sp?) is really growing up, I noticed her the most, although it is very very strange to think of Maria being 11. I'm glad that you made this post, and I hope that you don't have any more computer trouble for a few years...

Fun.. fun... fun! Love the photos, especially the bumper boats. Great way to spend a birthday.

The babies photo is so cute! I can't believe it's been nearly a year since we saw you guys. They are all growing up way too fast.

Looks like you had fun. I know what it is like to play mini golf with little kids. When I was in Co I played with Jolene and She won. Of Course she would hit it the first time then picte the ball up and place it right by the hole to hit it in. Then she would start to cheer. It was really fun.

I can't believe how grown up all your girls look! I know I see them from time to time, but I hadn't noticed how they've changed. It looks like you guys had a great time.
