Do you let your kids' Grandparents do this?

So every year instead of Christmas presents my husbands parents take the whole family on a little vacation for about 3 days (typically a water park).  I have 5 kids and his sister has 2.  This year they want to take all the kids without the parents to a big water park.  So that would be 7 kids under the age of 13, and my kids can't swim that well, for 3 days.  Honestly, other than a friends sleep over my kids haven't been away from us.  I am uncomfortable with this.  Do you think it is unreasonable if I tell them no?  Opinions please...

I would let them go. I'm sure the grandparents won't let them drown. And gives you a break a few days.

IMO that's too many kiddos for them to watch at a place like that....I'd say no.

I wouldn't let them go because that is a lot of kids for two grandparents.

No just cause mine are all under 10. If they where 10 or older sure.

I would let them go. All of my children's grandparents love them and would protect them just as much as my husband and me.
