Slip & Slide, Pool Party, and a dog named Jet

We went to Oklahoma this weekend for a birthday/pool party my sister and her boyfriend were throwing. It might be safe to say that Hudson would have ranked Saturday as a best day ever. :) Being able to spend an entire day outside and with water...what more can a boy ask for?
Hudson, Nana and I started out Saturday playing with a Slip and Slide that they had gotten for him. One word: SUCCESS!

After a really good nap, we headed to the pool party. Paw-Paw and Nana bought Hudson a special pool that we kept in the shade at the party. He LOVED it...we even got to bring it home with us so he can play with it in our back yard.
It even has a slide...

Our attempt at a family pic.
Hudson L.O.V.E.D. this little game that he roped his Uncle Geoff and Aunt Shani into playing. Geoff would drop him into the water and Shani would catch him while treading water...bless their hearts (and arms and legs)!!!!
Here is Hudson being the life of the party. Notice everyone is looking at him...he was eating it up and putting on quite a show!
Before we left on Sunday we stopped by Great Aunt Fern's house. Let me start by saying that the only dog that Hudson is ever around is Noni's dog, Coco (who is a white maltese). So, when we walk into Aunt Fern's house and he sees a black poodle he starts saying Coco. We think that he must think that all dogs are Coco. It was hilarious...we kept saying, "Hudson that is Jet." He would just look at Jet and say, "Coco?" Too cute!!

Petting softly. (Poor Jet...doesn't she look defeated?)
Jet finally realized she might like Hudson and decided to just walk all over him. Needless to say, this thrilled him to no end!
We had such a fun weekend...can't wait until our next visit!! :)

I'm so glad you had such a fun trip! That sounds like the perfect day for Tanner, too- playing OUTSIDE in the WATER! Hudson looked like he was in heaven- and loving all the attention! And, I love the slip-n-slide! SO FUN! Hopefully Tanner is feeling better so we can see you guys this week! Love ya!

Looks like such a fun time! I love Hudson's intense look going down the slide in his pool- it looks like a fun one! I think Griffin has that same shirt he is wearing at Aunt Fern's- I love it!!! Hope to see you two soon!
