Last weekend, RP, PN, LB and I packed up and headed to the cottage with RP's parents for a Mothers Day getaway. We had our usual relaxed time with lots of good food and interesting conversations. There was some family chores which everyone pitched in to accomplish and the weekend was great.
At one time we were introducing ourselves to someone during an outing and RP's mom said I was her "sort of adopted son". It was very quick and I think I was the only one at the table who picked up on it but I thought it was an interesting and heart warming sign of how far things have come.
