The Parents

This holiday was special because it wasn't just a beach getaway with Roboman. We invited my parents to join us for this trip, and we're glad they seemed to have enjoyed themselves.

It was a time for bonding, and opening of my heart to understand more about them, my husband, and myself. This invitation was Roboman's idea. I wish I thought of it first, but I have to honestly say that it was him who did. He is a real dear!

It was very heartening to see how my parents showed concern for us, and how Roboman did for them. In my observations, I was also amused by how my parents, after all these years of marriage (I think 32?), still shared a certain childlike hold on each other. My dad is the protective, giving and knowledgeable husband, while my mum is the wide-eyed, curious and adoring wife.

Of course we couldn't do everything together. My mother does not like blazing sunshine, and so they opted to take a trip out to the mountains, enjoying the cool air and greenery there, while we stayed for doses of sun, sand and sea.

We met for dinners and a mid-afternoon tea. I was the only one that kept getting hungry! It must have been the air from the seas...

I actually love family holidays. ;)
And even better when you get your own time/space! Best of both worlds.
