I need opinions! We have 4 kids (ages 8, 6, 5, 4) and we love traveling, but it's tough and expensive with all 4 kids! So usually we just do day trips or overnight trips around our state to make it easier until they are older (and we hopefully have more money!). When they were babies and toddlers, we would take 2 with us and leave 2 with my mom when we'd travel farther away. I was OK with it then because I knew they wouldn't remember anyway. But now that they are getting a bit older, I feel bad leaving 2 behind. Reason I'm asking - We were thinking of taking a 3 day trip to a beach resort in Puerto Rico, but with a family of 6 we'd have to get 2 hotel rooms and airline tickets would cost more of course. I know that whoever we leave would have a blast with my mom because every time they go it's like a vacation at her house and they don't want to return, but I still feel bad that we would be having fun without the whole family there together....that they would be missing out and would be mad at us or something. Of course there will be other times in the future where whoever was left this time would get to go...we like to travel as much as possible. What is your honest opinion? Would it be horrible if we went with only 2 kids or is it not a big deal?
