Sunday is family dinner day and it's always at Mom's house. This Sunday was extra special because I brought Ethan with me. One word: awesome.

A lot went on and I could spell it all out for you but I'm tired and so, you will get a bullet list. You're welcome.
  • Arrival and introductions. Hugs all around. He is shy.
  • Tour of the house. He is in awe of all the stuff that April and Rebecca have.
  • He is in awe that April and Rebecca don't have to keep their rooms immaculately clean.
  • He is given a task; learns how we earn our keep at Mom's house.
  • Mom has to explain that she's joking and he can eat regardless.
