Celebrating Gabe










Gabe's parents generously offered to host a dinner on Saturday in honor of Gabe for passing his boards.  We went to Hillstone (Houston's) and celebrated with spinach dip, bbq ribs, whoopie pies (seen here), candy blood, and Operation (thanks to Nate and Kristal).  It's always fun to see how proud everyone is of Gabe and his accomplishments.  We had the best time and I think we all feel a sense of relief for Gabe having this test successfully behind him.  A special thank you to Dick and Ginger for the celebration and congratulations again to Gabe!
