After kicking, he did some laps with the swim bars. He was so proud after one that he jumped out, ran over to me, pulled my hands apart, gave me a high five, then ran back over and jumped back in. Here is some video of him smiling and swimming with a little help:
After that lap he jumped out, ran over, hugged me, and said "I love you, Dad" in his best cool voice, then ran back again. I think he had a great time.
On the way home we had a thrilling recap of his love for tater tots as we passed Sonic.
G: I really love tater tots. They ARE my favorite thing ever. I wish there was a whole city of tater tots. I would eat it all up. I would eat the whole world. The buildings and everything.
J: The people would have nowhere to live then? They would scream and run, yelling no, don't eat our houses giant Gideon! But you would be like, "Nom Nom Nom!"
G: I would just eat the houses and things too.
J: what about the people? Would you turn them into tater tots too?
G: yeah, I would eat everyone except Mommy and Daddy. Sylvie and I would eat them. And we would eat Mommy and Daddy too actually.
J: oh no! Then we would have to fight you. We would make giant ketchup guns to shoot you!
G: well, my guns would have cheese and mustard in them to shoot you with!!!
At this point I just have him a high five for awesomeness.
