around? My BFF whom I've know for 10+ yrs is constantly involved in our family outings/trips/vacations. Little background: She's from Cape Cod and moved here in MD years ago so all of her family is still in the Cape and to make matters worse they don't speak or atleast not very often. We are her sudo family - she's like a sister to me and hubby and our kids call her aunt Laina and even my mum and sisters consider her one of the family. When we do go on trips whether it's weekend ski trips, beach trips, Disney vacations or trips locally she's with us. Dinners every Sunday she there for and even trips to the mall. Don't get me wrong we love her to bits but we would like to do somethings as a family without her. We are planning our annual Disney vaca for next April and I told her up front that if she wanted to join us for a few days it would be alright and she agreed. See next year we'll spend 2 full weeks in Disney...
Don't pull out of the trip. Just be honest with her. Even if she gets upset, you can't back out of everything your family looks forward to, simply to keep the peace between you and your friend. Their happiness should come before hers. Just tell her that you and hubby want some time alone with the family...and stick to your original plan of her only being there a few days. She may get upset, but if she's a true friend, she'll respect your feelings and get over it...especially if she's that involved with everything else you do. Good Luck.
