What a busy Saturday. We started off our day with getting kids some breakfast and watching some Disney Jr.
I got my coffee made sure my son had everything ready for his football game. Took my daughter to her Dance class. My best friend and her daughter Haylee came to watch.
Then they headed to Starbucks and we headed home to get changed for football game. Sara & Haylee met up with us. My daughter Savannah had to show them her new big girl bed before we could leave 😊
Then we piled in my car for Brandon dropped off at field to practice. We headed to Mc Donald’s to get an early lunch before game.
Once we arrived back parking was limited but we found a spot. We soon realized we left lots of stuff at home and in their car. I had my hat and sunglasses sunblock and waters for us.
But we had nothing to provide shade everyone else had tarps and umbrellas we had no towels which now I know we need to sit I. The bleachers literally burned all of our butts we have matching bright red marked bottoms now.
We left our water/ fan bottles at home Haylee forgot her sunglasses we felt like we were in survival mode. A sweet mom from Brandon’s team offered ya shade under their tarp but their was not room for four of us.
So we said thank you but declined.She had a umbrella she brought over to us which probably saved us from heat stroke. The triple digit temps were intense out there today.
Those boys I so proud of all the gear and they played like champs and we’re amazing. Unfortunately our team lost. We lost our quarterback early on we had about 35 minute or longer halt in game it was scary police, fire truck and ambulance all came we had no idea what was wrong with him until he got on stretcher and found out it’s a broken arm.
Good news is it wasn’t anything too serious. But he’s out the whole season now and today was our first game of the season. My three year old was amazingly good for the three of us with the heat and dramatic day.
I was pouring cold water on her head and back to keep her cool. When the game ended I have to admit me and our group cheered so loud even though we lost.
I went to the car and couldn’t let anyone in I had forgot to put sunshade up and we didn’t have towels on the seats and my car is black with black leather interior it was unbearably hot.
I got A/C going sent my bestie to get Brandon the girls stayed with me it was finally cooling off a little. We all got in and raced over to Starbucks I got everyone venti ice waters my kids also got Frappuccino’s and I got and iced green tea lemonade.
We hurried to our house for in swimsuits well all of us accept my little one went in with nothing and we enjoyed our refreshing swimming pool for hours. Had snacks and hydrated.
Around 5:30 or 6:00pm we got out and rinsed off. My bestie Sara and her daughter Haylee had to head home they live about an hour away from us.
I took the kids to get dinner my daughter passed out on the way there.So we made it quick and easy fast food even though I wanted to get my son a steak after such a grueling day.
We got home had our food I was pigging out felt like I could still eat more but instead I hydrated more.
I went to bed before 9pm. My daughter got me up to join me in my bed around 1:30am it’s now 3am I need to get back to sleep.
I’m so proud of my son Brandon and his team they really were great no complainers with heat etc. I think it was harder in parents and siblings watching in stands.
Proud of my daughter for making it through such a big day. Thankful for the greatest best friend ever to endure such temperatures abs drive an hour each way to spend the entire day with us.
🤞hoping to get back to sleep and get three to four hours more sleep 😴
