How often do you visit your family?

My mom and sis live 10min away so I see them whenever

We visit SO's family, brothers, sister, grand parents and cousins, once every 4 months, they live an hour away. I would go more but I have school and being there throws off everything, especially my sleep because it's hard to go to sleep at other people's houses.

  • now that we live 4hrs away, and school is in, we have to wait for a school-break, or long weekend. my parents aren't able to drive anywhere anymore, so if i don't go see them, i can't see them..because goodness knows, my two sisters (who live in the same town as my parents) aren't driving them to me!

  • All of my Sisters live far away, I see one of them a couple times a year. My parents are both deceased, and no grandparents. On Hubby's side his family lives 2000+ miles away and we see them maybe once a yr. I plan to take our boys to see them in the Summer.

  • Our moms live in town and we see them at least a couple of times a month. they come to dinner and school functions, holidays.

    2/3 of DH's sisters live over 3000 miles away. We see them every couple of years. It sucks but it is so expensive for us to take everyone there and they rarely can afford to come here.

    I take the kids to see my great uncle in California once a year. He's 90 and amazing. He still has the energy to take my kids to the pool and endure us at dinner for a week. He was my favorite relative growing up and now he is one of the last that i have left.

  • All of our family is at least 900 miles away. We visit with my parents every 5 months or so (they migrate so we see them when they travel) and we see everybody else once a year.
