Logan & Mason's birthday party at Bounce U!

On May 24th we had a combined birthday party for Logan (7) and Mason (5) at a really fun place called Bounce U. It is a huge building with two huge rooms with bounce houses. The party is 2 hours long and you start in one of the bounce rooms. You bounce for 45 minutes in that room and then move on to the next bounce room for another 45 minutes of bouncing. For the last 30 minutes you go into the party room where they serve the cake and ice cream and open presents. This is the best idea for a party for a bunch of boys!! We had 25 boys and 2 girls bouncing! The boys were loving life running crazy in these huge rooms full of bouncy things. The bounce houses contained obstacle courses, basketball, huge slides, climbing walls,...etc. It was so fun, I think the best birthday party ever!
Tons of bouncy fun!!

All the kids ran and played until they were tired and sweaty!
This was the second room we were in....

Now all the kids are relaxing and ready to enjoy some cake and ice cream!
"Happy birthday to you....happy birthday to you... happy birthday dear Logan and Mason, happy birthday to you!"

Logan is now 7 years old!

Logan's 7th Birthday at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom!

Logan was so excited to go to Six Flags for his birthday! He wanted to ride all the scary rides. Unfortunately, the rest of Northern California felt that same way on that day. It was super busy, like Disneyland in July. Although, the weather was absolutely beautiful! No heat, just sunshine and a breeze! Logan is not quite tall enough to ride a lot of rides so that was a bit of a let down. He was not very happy at the animal shows, as you can see here in this picture with Oma at the Dolphin show.
Eventually we split up so Dave could take Logan on rides while Oma and I took Mason, Noah, and Roman to see the cool animals. Mason and Noah loved this walrus. He was so cool! If you clapped at him he'd clap his fins back at you. They loved hanging out with him.
It was so sweet to see how much Noah loved all the beautiful animals. He was enthralled with the fish and sharks. We later saw some giraffes, a tiger, an elephant and we walked around the butterfly experience. That was cool because they would fly right in front of you and maybe even land on you.

Noah and Roman were so good that day! We are so lucky to have such sweet little boys! They had a lot of fun and didn't mind that they couldn't ride a lot of rides.
Noah loved the shows! It was a special day with the kids....we'll go back again soon, except this time on a week day!! Logan said it turned out to be one of the best birthdays ever! (At least in the top 7!)

Bathtime Buddies!

These crazy boys all love bathtime. It means playtime with water, which also means a mess of us and our bathroom. They have so much fun in there, too much fun I'd say. It's always a chore to get them OUT of the bath! Hey, at least they're clean....

Roman's first haircut...

His hair wasn't too long but it was starting to hang in his eyes so I decided to trim it. He looked so much older afterward, it was kind of sad. My little baby is growing up and I don't like it!! He's supposed to stay a baby!! He is such a darling little toddler now. He makes us smile all day!

Kian is such a cutie pie!

My boys have such a fun time playing with Kian. He usually comes over once a week and gets rowdy with all the boys. They love him!

Oma and her grandkids!

The kids all see Oma at least once a week, sometimes more. She spends a lot of her time babysitting, but they love spending time with her. She gives them things that Mom and Dad don't normally let them have, so it's pretty fun.

Grandpa Longoria and his grandkids!

We get together as a family for holidays and birthdays, etc.... I'm so glad the kids get to spend time with their Grandpa Longoria. He is always so proud of his 5 grandsons and his little princess Sophia!

I'm so glad that my sister Stephanie and her family live so close to us. The kids get to play together often and we help each other out with babysitting now and then. The cousins have a blast together!

The Bitter Family Easter 2007

We had such a wonderful Easter this year. We went to church in the morning and then came home and had an Easter egg hunt with the family. Oma, Grandpa Longoria, Aunt Stephanie, Uncle Richard, Sophia, and Kian came over and enjoyed the day with us. We had a fun time and a lovely dinner.
