Perfection. The only way to describe the last few days. I am soooo glad that Grant was not able to get his Chemo on Wednesday last week.

After we got home, I immediatly moved into Plan B action. I spent most of the day Thursday planning Grant's 3rd birthday party. It was a baseball theme so of course I got everything Astros I could find to decorate the house. David picked up Astro's T-shirts for our extended family members to wear and Claire came home with David's parents. That afternoon I was standing in the kitchen and Grant came WALKING  up to me with his arms out and the world's biggest smile on his face! It was not pretty, but it was a walk!!!

On Friday we took Grant to the Kingwood Country Club pool. No one was there and we were outside, so we felt okay about being there. He LOVED beling there. He spent some time floating in the water, but most of it just hanging out under the cabanna - just smiling.

Saturday was his BIG day. We went to the parade in the morning and the pool in the afternoon. He was walking better on Saturday and started to swing the bat at balls that David was pitching to him. He was his old self and just so happy. His cousins and Aunt and Uncle drove in from Dallas and the party started around 5:00. Did I mention that I rented a dunk tank?? We had a dunk tank in the driveway and everyone took turns throwing balls at a target and so enjoyed watching David fall into the water. Then all the kids (not Grant) took turns getting dunked. It was a huge hit. We ate hot dogs, hamburgers, peanuts and popcorn, follwed by cake and presents. After Grant opened up his "Better Batter Baseball" present and took a few swings at his new toy, we all loaded up in three cars and drove to the Kingwood High School parking lot to watch the Kingwood firework show. It was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend.

This morning we said bye to all our family and got the house back in order. We are looking forward to a few calm and relaxng days before we check into the hospital on Wednesday for a week.

Thanks again to everyone to helped make Grant's 3rd birthday so special. I will get some pictures loaded up on here and on facebook tomorrow. I am off to take a nap!
