I was 14 when I visited Aruba for the first time. My parents took me when I was growing up, and when Kurt and I started dating, he was invited to join in the fun. Now we're new parents, and we are very excited to bring a third generation of my family to this happy island.
Before our son Mason was born, we used to spent a day at the spa, or snorkeling or visiting the island on horseback. Now we are doing the same as my parents did, focusing more on family. My parents love these trips because they earn "time grandparents' (and we took for a couples massage, much needed)! Before you go home each year, we make sure to spend a whole day on the beach from morning until sunset. There was a tradition of my parents, and now it's our family tradition of happy too.
