Having 12 children finally paid off for my parents. This year we all pitched in and sent them to Mexico! It was their first time out of the country (no, Canada doesn't count) for about 40 years, so of course they needed some tour guides. We obliged--and brought some extra hooligans along just for good measure. We had a blast swimming, fishing, snorkeling, relaxing, and eating WAY too many tacos. I don't know if it would be worth having 12 kids, but they sure enjoyed themselves. And so did we.
