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!

That is the cutest little puppy!

That would kind of suck to not be able to get out of the water lol.

He is super cute, Thanks! He's still a handful.

We had a hell of a time getting out. It was pretty fun though!

Looks like you had a great weekend-I'm totally jealous. My family and I need to do these kinds of things more.
I love the catfish stuck on a hook story.
