Pool Time, Doggie Doors and Sweat Bands!

We had a great weekend in Texas. On Friday we went for a follow up appt with Gibson's doctor who said that he is doing great and progressing wonderfully because of his therapies. We were really excited that she is seeing that he is making great strides like we have seen.
After his appt we had lunch at weinerschnitzel... our favorite hot dog place... with Gerod's sister and brother-in-law and the kids. It was fun to catch up and we had a good lunch too. Then it was off to Midland for the remainder of the weekend. We had a blast playing in the pool and Gibson had so much fun sliding down the slide. This kid definitely has NO FEAR... he slide down the slide all by himself numerous times, and it is about a 6ft tall slide. We were all quite amazed. Sometimes he didn't feel like climbing all the way to the top and would just climb over the side and slide about a foot till he got in the water. He is definitely becoming a "water baby" just like I was when I was his age.
Showing off his cute trunks!
His faces when he would get in the water constantly cracked us all up. He made this same expression almost every time he dropped off the slide.
Here is Jaxon in his new goggles that Gigi got him... she got some for Gibson too, but he took them off after about a minute.
Gibson was getting kind of heavy so we put him in the duck inner tube and he held on and swam around the pool for a while all by himself. Again, this kid has no fear, I don't know many kids who would do this on their own.
Gibson and his cousin Jaxon had a ton of fun on this horse. One of Gibson's favorite animals right now is horses, and he played on this thing forever as well as played with some toy horses inside the house. I think these things could have kept him entertained for hours on end.
One of the funniest parts of the weekend was when Gibson discovered the doggie door... he went out of it to the backyard, would go back into the house and come back out the doggie door again and again. It was hilarious... I had to get pictures of the whole process.

A picture of the two Daddies (Gerod and my Dad) manning the grill on Saturday night for our BBQ and pool day. My Dad was hot so he put on this oh-so-manly pink sweat band. This is CLASSIC Garth right here! *Love you Daddy*
We cant wait to get back to Texas to see family again, and get back in that pool. Weekends like this make Gerod and I want a pool of our own. Maybe sometime soon we can get a bigger house that includes a pool so we can have the kind of family fun that we had this weekend!
