    I think you will love every minute of it! I think my only concern would be not having a zero entry pool. I have 00000 kid experience but we have seen lots of little ones enjoying splashing around in the really shallow area and they look like they love it. On the last trip we saw a toddler in a full body rash guard suit for sun protection, you may want to look that up too.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    If you think of it in terms such as - "TAKING THE FAMILY TO ARUBA FOR 7 DAYS, WILL IT BE TOO MUCH?" It is a killer. Change the mind set and it will work out. Think of it as: Treating the family to luxury camping. Damn, only 7 days. Oh well it'll be fun.

    Be well

    My first granddaughter was 2 months old the first time she went....we had a baby float for her with alittle roof.....I can remember watching her fall asleep to the motion of the waves.....Our second granddaughter was 9 months old her first time.....yes we would take both at the same time ...they have come with us every year now at 9 & 7 they look forward to Aruba as much as we do.....it is a different kind of fun for us ....now its watching them swim and snorkel, play in the sand ,go for our morning & evening walks ...last year we saw turtles hatch which was amazing for all of us .....that's what they talked about at school when they went back.....I say enjoy it while you can the memories your making right now will last forever........Diane

    First....I think 3 days babysitting should be a perfect compromise
    second....you will have a blast and be so glad afterwards
    third....my 20 year old niece wants to come in november and I am already having palpitations worrying about it.....I would rather have someone I can hold on to instead of worrying she will sneak out at night to go party......YIKES !!!!!!
    ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME

    From Wiki:

    Rash guards are most often worn in surfing when the weather is too warm for a wetsuit, and to prevent wax-based chafing from sliding on and off of the surf board, on either the torso, or the legs. A surfboard's wax holds sand from the beach that could rub against a surfer's torso while paddling out to the break, or legs while sitting atop one's board. Rash guards also offer some protection from the sun (measured by its Ultraviolet Protection Factor) and slight protection against jelly fish stings and are sometimes worn under wetsuits to prevent chafing. A rash guard helps to prevent irritation caused by rapid impact with surface water and waves as well.

    I took my daughter to Aruba at 6 months, 12 month, 18 months etc. Even if the ride getting there was a bit tough --- having those memories of her on the beach as a little one will last forever and make it all worth it.

    She is 3 1/2 years now and is so excited for her 6th? trip to Aruba in 2 weeks -- she cant stop talking about it to her friends.
