Just got back from our first vacation together. Some rough patches between me and Dude but nothing irreconcilable - we learned a few things we have to work on.
On the other hand - twice during the week we met up with old friends of ours/mine that knew about Dude but had never met him. They asked a lot of the right questions and things went very well! I think that seeing how all three of us are when we are together really helped.
Planning our next vacation for September (camping this time - which I think will actually be easier). And the last of my friends that still has to meet Dude is planning on visiting in October.
I think the roller coaster ride will continue as we encounter new hurdles but we are working on it and moving forward. I love these boys.
