"It was Christmas of 1998, and my husband and I had a surprise in store. Christmas had always been my mother-in-law's favorite time of year, and our usual tradition was to vacation somewhere together for the holiday. Since my husband and I became WorldMark owners the first year of our marriage, naturally we often vacation at a WorldMark resort. This time, the destination was WorldMark Big Bear in California.

We packed up our belongings, the presents and the tree, and headed off. The mountain scenery was breathtaking and became more beautiful at every turn. Once we got to the resort, we cooked up a delicious Christmas dinner and then took our usual walk around the resort. The weather was brisk, while the scent of fresh pine trees and lit fireplaces filled the air. As the steam rose off of the warm Jacuzzi as we passed by, it was hard to resist the invitation to get in, but it was definitely going to have to wait this time.

Back in the room, gathered around the fireplace, we exchanged gifts. We saved ours for last. Since my husband and I have been married for four years, we always knew that his parents wanted to buy a large vehicle when they became grandparents. So our gift to them was a card that said, ‘It’s time to start looking' They immediately got the message that we were expecting our first child and they were finally going to be grandparents! They were so excited; they jumped up from their seats, laughing and screaming with joy. Needless to say, a trip was the perfect way to celebrate!

Since her birth, Samantha has always loved our tradition of vacationing and celebrating special occasions at a WorldMark resort. Some of her favorites have been at WorldMark Pinetop to celebrate her 13th birthday during our family reunion; at our usual summer favorite, WorldMark Indio, for her 16th birthday; and Maui and WorldMark Pismo Beach for our 20th anniversary and our parents' 50th. Samantha is turning eighteen soon and heading off to college. We can't think of a better way our family would like to celebrate together than by heading off to another WorldMark resort for a vacation — maybe surprising our daughter this time!”
