Memorial Day weekend

Hey everyone. I told you I would be back!
How was your weekend? Ours was AWESOME!
We went to Arroyo City and rented a cabin with a private fishing pier.
Here are some pics of our weekend.
These pics are in no particular order.
Zeus was the first passenger to ride with me to the Cabin. We picked up the kids along the way except for Dom because he stayed overnight with his cousin to practice for her Quince.

Here are Amber and Dom after I picked them up. We were waiting for my sister in law (Erika) to show up so we can all go BACK to the cabin (this is day 2).

The cabin was just off of the water and we could all jump into it. Unfortunately...we didn't have a ladder to GET OUT, so we had to improvise.

We showered outside cause it was quicker. Our cabin may have had a total of 8 beds (3 bunk beds) but there was only 1 bathroom and waiting in line to shower became a pain in the ass.

Devyn and I on the pier enjoying the day.
Dominique and I also on the pier. He's getting to be taller than I am and he won't let me forget it.

My mother in law (Faith) enjoying the weekend too.

My nephew Aiden playing on his float in the water.

My sister in law Erika.

My niece Amber, chillin on one of the chairs on the deck.

Dom, playing with the oars on a floatie. He's silly sometimes.

Devyn, using our improvised ladder to get out of the water. We had to use the kayak as our ladder and even that was a small task.
Miah and I playing in the water with the rest of the family. Little did we know...we'd be playing for a while until we figured out how to get out.
My brother in law sitting on the second level of the pier.

Angel and I also on the second level of the pier. This pic was taken at night.
Angel making our feast for the evening.

The next morning I woke up early and decided to fish alone while everyone was asleep. I caught a catfish and couldn't get it off of the hook. Zeus was no help at all. I had to go and wake up Angel and we fished for a while before we had to pack up and leave.
All in all, we had a great time with family doing the things we love!
I have a million more pics but those will be put away for memories for the kids.
I hope everyone had/has a wonderful holiday weekend.
Be safe!

Excuse me, Do I know YOU?

Go ahead.
Cuss at me for being away. What can I say? I've been pretty busy. I won't go into too many details now but I will give you a super quick recap....complete with pics!
Here We Go....
We all know Devyn played football and I believe he did a damn good job playing for his first time. (It also helps that he looks so cute in his uniform).

Miah and Devyn both played Basketball and they kicked ass. I'm not just saying that cause I'm their momma!! (ok, we all know I'm biased)

YES!! I had to buy the most expensive package!


Then, they moved on to Softball/Baseball!

Taking Miah to her game.

Daddy is there for his little girl!

Devyn is there to support his sister before his own game in the next field.

Where's Dom?
Right here:

He happened to catch up with his long lost cousin.
I don't have any pics of Dom playing sports because he doesn't classify himself as an "athlete". He's a "musician" or "rocker" or "artist" or something....
AND...I still love him.

He has just gotten a fresh haircut and he's not to happy about it. I'm glad the day and age of throwing fits has been looooong over!

My dog Chupa passed away around Easter. He was hit by a police car late at night and the cop didn't even stop. I was asleep and Angel was up when it happened. He buried poor Chupa and told me about it in the morning. I was devastated. I miss him. He was the best dog ever!

Now we have this new puppy. His name is Zeus. Why did put a pic of him up here like this instead of one that is with him posing like a good little dog?
Because, this is how he is everytime I see him.

Angel and I are still going strong.
We went to shoot pool and of course, I won't mention who won *cough*me*cough* but we had a great time.

So, that's it for now folks. I'm trying to figure out how to put a countdown timer on here because I'm counting down the time until I go on vacation to see my brother this summer in NY.
It's gonna be fun. Never been fishing in NY and guess who's super excited about that and is trying to use this as an excuse to buy new rods and reels?
Yeah, you know who.
P.S. Guess who wrote in his blog...unprompted....
