When my mother was approaching her 65th Birthday, she wanted her entire family to be part of the celebration, so she and my father magnanimously offered to take us all on a trip. The topic was discussed a year before the grand occasion because my parents knew it would take at least that amount of time for some level of consensus to be reached. There are 6 children, 5 of whom are married, with children. At the time, there were 11 grandchildren ranging in age from 18 to 1-month old. Everyone had a different work and school schedules, with unmatched vacation periods and varying opinions about the “best” type of family vacation.
