Roller skating party

A few weeks back my nieces had a birthday party...and it happen to be at a roller skating ring! I haven't been roller skating since the mid 90's but was really excited to tie up those skates again and do the Hokey-Pokey!!!

Turns out, Grey loves "roller skating" as well. And why wouldn't's combining his two favorite things, music and dancing all into one!

Here we are getting down at Woodland roller skating Rink (this happens to be the very same place I had skating parties when i was in middle school....crazy)

and there's Leigh getting her "skate on"

 and this is how the snack bar looks today...exactly the same as it did when i was in 5th grade. awesome!

By the end of the party we had to drag grey off the rink, he loved it and only stopped "skating" to partake in some birthday cake. So lets just say you might see the Gibbs family at the next open skate in the near future!

oh and here's a little video of the evening.

Greyson Turns 4!!!

4 years old...what?!?!

Well we went for it... we did a Chucky Cheese birthday party. I'm not sure if any of you have been to Chucky Cheese on a saturday afternoon, but it's madness, pure madness. This is what we wanted to avoid. So...we scheduled Grey's party for 9:30 AM on a Sunday morning. perfect, no one goes to Chucky Cheese on a Sunday morning. We nailed it, it was great!

Yeah, Grey LOVES Chucky...and cake!

Lately Grey's been obsessed with music and dancing, at the party he showed off some of his moves!

check it out.

love to all,

Andy, Leigh, and Grey

Halloween...a few months late

I have a feeling every year we're gonna have to "up-the-ante" with Grey's costume. How can we incorporate his wheelchair into the coolest costume ever!!! We'll this year we went with a classic... a cowboy and his horse. I give Leigh all the credit on this one. I may have cut a few pieces of cardboard here and there, but she was the mastermind behind it all. and I think it turned out awesome!

Halloween was cold this year, and we just beat the rain. but Grey had a great time with some of his other cowgirl cousins! 

Oh and we did that other Halloween stuff too, like carving pumpkins...

Happy Halloween/New Years!

love, the Gibbs'

Greys brick

Kids love playgrounds. Grey loves playgrounds. Playgrounds aren't made for wheelchairs...most of the time. Oh yeah, they have a single ramp that goes to a single platform, that has a single wheel to fun. But we make the best of it and get creative.

However, this past fall a new playground was built that is super adaptive, and in fact its got greys name in it! Back in the fall Grandma and Grandpa bought a brick, (that was part of a fundraiser for the playground)  that has Greysons name on it, and when it was finally done we had to go look for our brick.

we found it.

As you can see the park has more than "a single ramp to a single platform" it's pretty rad!

theres the classic stuff too.

looking forward to gong back in the spring!!

starting small

I feel out of practice...where do i even begin. Maybe I'll ease back into it... post a few things from the fall, and gradually get back into the new year. Yeah, ok, well go with that.

We posted about Grey's new patio a while back, we all love it, and spend a lot of time out there.  Here he is with cousin Evan playing hoops.

and here they are riding in Grey's "Barbie" Jeep.

Ok, that wasn't so hard. Yeah, we can do this more often.


more posts to come!
