Welcome to our 2013 Thanksgiving trip! This trip was partially funded by my dad. He and my mom decided that for Christmas they would pay the loging portion of our trip! YEA, best parents and gift EVER! They also did this for my sister and BIL. So the whole family would be on vacation together. (Yes my parents also came). So here we go (the surgery part comes near the end so hold on).

Day 1: Thursday, Nov. 28
We arrived at Caribbean Beach around 11:45AM after staying in Brunswick, GA over night. We did not do online check in this time as we were 3 rooms tied together and we didn’t want to mess that up. Check in was slow and our room was not ready. That was okay. We went to park the car at Aruba (we were told what building). We then headed to Old Port Royale for a light snack while waiting on our room and the rest of the family to arrive. We purchased a few things we needed (sunglasses and swim trunks for Aidan) while there also. We stopped by the play ground on the way back to Aruba to kill time. Around 1:30PM our room was not ready but the rest of the family had arrived in Orlando. They were staying off site for the night and checking in at CBR the next day. We decided to head to Beaches N Cream for a late lunch. The Beach Club is just beautiful during Christmas (all the resorts are). Here are the kids with the tree in the CBR Custom House (check in area).
