It had been a whopping five years since me and my family have been able to take a family vacation together, let alone get thirteen of us together under one roof easily! Circumstances have changed now; some of us are parents, some married, and everyone but the children are situated in life with parenthood, careers and busy schedules etc. To break this funk, my parents thought it would be nice to get us all on a plane together and set off to experience some sun, relaxation and fun in Aruba. It was an extremely generous Christmas present, but something much appreciated and much needed for each one of us, so we all patiently waited for April to roll around!
