Gorgeous banner made by Arushi at thedarkarts. :)

It is the first Potter/ Weasley family holiday, and as imagined it will probably include its fair share of arguing. A pinch of disaster, a cup of calamity, a slither of explosive tempers and a slice of trouble. 

But of course, it will ultimately be a glorious time for all to reflect on the "joys" of having a family, and how much they love them all really. Ish. :-)
