Goin' Non-Stop Saturday

My day started early Saturday and went non-stop all day. I got up early to go to my little brother's soccer game which I thought started at 8:30. I found out when I got there that it was changed to 12:30 which stunk since I didn't have to get up so early and since I drove all the way out there. And I felt bad for Zach because when I called and found out about the soccer game from him he asked if he could come hang out with me for a little while and I said yes. When he called his dad to ask if he could come with me he got in trouble for waking him up and it just sounded like poor Zach was having a rough morning. I tried to cheer him up and promised I would be at his game later on. After I got home I took care of Baily and worked on Robert's costume... cutting the material out and sewing and all that jazz. After Robert got up and ready we left with Baily and Bryan to go get some of the finishing costume touches. Usually Saturday is my only day to have my family to myself since Bryan and Tyler go home on Friday night and I don't have Mya. But we had a family reunion so the week was weird. Anyway we took Bryan along so Robert's mom could work on the food she had to bring to the reunion. We went to this thrift store that a lot of friends told me about and we found some cool stuff. Bryan got his costume which we tried to talk him out of... it was some weird super hero costume, but he was insistent about this one. It was only a buck so we got it for him. I also found a wizard hat for Robert that I'm so proud of and witch shoes for Baily. Our grand total? Under $4! Wahoo! After we left there we went and got lunch at Subway (had some good coupons for there) and headed to Zach's soccer game. It was so freakin' hot! Hello!?! It's almost November for cryin' out loud. I was mad at the heat but it was good to see my little siblings. Zach seemed to have shaken whatever was bothering him before off and even though they lost again he seemed in good spirits. And Mackenzie had fun playing with Baily and Bryan. After we left the game we went for a quick trip to Wally World and I finally got everything I need for the costumes. We rushed home, I got Baily dressed and got everything packed up while Robert dropped off his mom at the park and got gas and then he came and got us and we went to the Dominguez family park for the Dominguez family reunion. It was still hot but not as miserable as before. The reunion was a lot of fun. We had good food, played fun games as it finally started cooling off, visited, Baily had fun at the park with her Tio Armando of course and Robert and his cousins had fun playing a game of softball. After a while though and with Baily having no nap for the day I was ready to go home and be with just me and my family. I love my nephew but I was totally Bryaned out. He can be pretty mentally exhausting. So me, Robert and Baily went home and we decided to just eat a frozen pizza and watch a movie and chill. We got about a quarter of the way through the movie when all of Robert's family showed back up at the house so we had to wait a while before they all left. Bryan wanted to stay at the house but I made sure he went home. He had been here since last Sunday... I think he needs at least one night at his own house once in a while. After they left we got Baily to sleep and finished watching the movie and we were out. It was an exhausting day! Here's the pics from the reunion.
