DIL has a very rich uncle and he is treating her side of the family (adults only) to a weeks vacation on Turtle Island. He rented the whole island for just the family.  They leave Porltand tonight to go there.  I am keeping an eye on Emmy and Austin while they are gone, but they are easy.  Here's the link to the island. I'm sure they will have a great time and the weather is gorgeous.

I know which plane you mean but I can't think of what it is called either but it would certainly have lots of stretching room.

That's too bad that your dh's rich uncle wouldn't be more generous but some people aren't no matter how much they have.

Yes they will be pampered all week that's for sure.  Yes the uncle is married and they have 6 kids.  He's a really nice man and doesn't act like a rich snob.  His wife is the same way.

I'm sure that I wouldn't be able to move after 14 hours packed in a suitcase.  I'm sure they were probably pretty comfortable.  The jet they were flying on was one that had stairs and a second story.  I forget what it is.

Yes he is generous.  I think he has more money than he can possibly spend now.   DH has a rich uncle although not nearly as rich as DIL's uncle and he is real tight wad.

Yes that might be an uncomfortable flight for 14 hours in a suitcase.  LOL  Sometimes I wonder if the seating is not just as bad though.

That is a very generous uncle she has to do that for them.  Just because he's rich doesn't mean he has to be that nice.

Yes it looks just beautiful and warm.  DS said it was 72 yesterday there.  It's nice that they have the whole island to the family only and a couple of close friends.

Hmmm, I could have tossed all their clothes and hid in the suitcase.  Not sure how I would do on a 14 hour flight packed in a suitcase though.  lol

Well I wasn't invited and don't have $25,000 to spend on a vacation anyway.

Oh my that is heaven on earth.  What a beautiful place!  They have the whole island for their group which is so awesome and so luxurious.  I watched the video and dreamed of being there this morning with our temps at 20F here.

I'm sure they will have a wonderful time!  You should have jumped in their suitcase.
