So a couple of weeks ago Clue and I flew out to California for a quick weekend trip home. Several of my brothers and sisters were in town so it was a good time to go and meet the family.
In spite of having 14 people under my parents’ roof at once, we had a great time. It was one-part chaos, one-part great food, two-parts good fun. Clue continues to do well as he dives deeper and deeper into my world. My parents picked us up from the airport and I could see right away that they would get along. Not that I had any worries – I knew they would love Clue and he would love them. But it’s always unnerving when you meet the family and the parents and although you couldn’t tell, Clue was a bit nervous.
So the weekend included dinner with the family on Friday night, walking the Farmers Market downtown Saturday morning (a family favorite), a jaunt to Santa Cruz to play on the beach and throw the brass ring on the famous Boardwalk Carousel, church and more food with cousins, aunts and uncles on Sunday.
It felt great to have him there with my family. It was a short trip, but by the time the weekend came to a close, Clue felt completely at home.
Needless to say, things are going well!
