so now that BM has (hopefully) given up the fight about the kids coming back for 4th of july she says she can't drive them to Colorado and that DH will have to fly into Casper WY... no freakin way!! his ticket just to fly up there would be at least 320$, that's the cheapest I've found.. and he is going to get a round trip ticket for when he takes them home and comes back..and the cheapest I've found those are like over 500$ PLUS buying two round trip tickets for the kids.. she's out of her MIND!
she says it's just too much of a hassle to meet him Colorado because she's on probabtion and has to get permission to leave WY.. seriously?! DH pays for her gas so all she has to do is get ONE day off work and get permission which was really isn't that big of a deal , she did it last year.. not to mention every flight has stops.. it would take DH 6 hrs just to get there then have to turn right around and fly back with two kids.. 12 +hours of flying..
UGH this woman.. she does NOT think!

just added up an estimate of several sites and it'd be about 2,000 for plane tickets.. I guess she thinks we're made of money.

Do they have a legal/written custody agreement? It might (I say should because I think everything should be written out, but that may just be my jaded personal opinion based on our situation ) have in there where they are required to trade and she may not have a lot of ground to stand on. If not, have you looked into the cost of renting a car for him to drive and pick the kids up? It may be a LOT cheaper, though logistically more difficult. I know my family does that a lot, even if the drive is up to 4 or 5 hours, because you can save a lot that way. That said, it does sound like she is being unreasonable, unfair, and impossible to work with. A type of BM I know all too well

What a mess! I hope it can all be worked out! Sounds like she is trying to be difficult because he wouldn't cave in with her 4th of July nonsense.

ugh I hope you can work something out with her. Does she not have to pay half the travel expenses?

There is no custody agreement(my god I wish there was one), He drove to meet her in 2010 in Colorado(we live in TX and she lives in WY) and it was a two day trip and between his gas, her gas and the cost of hotel room the cost is almost the same, plus he drives 5 hrs to and from work every two weeks, so he hates road trips..

He's been trying to talk to the kids since he got home from work last tuesday and she won't answer the phone .. but she had plenty of time to text him about the traveling and CS .. which he sent Friday and hasn't heard anything from her since and everytime he calls now her phone is off... as much as I don't want Ethan to have a cell phone at 8 yrs old.. we're just gonna have to get him a one so DH can actually talk to the kids.
If we didn't answer the phone for days she'd flip out!
I guess I just need to stop expecting common sense and reason from her because she's proven she is just too immature for it.

Oh no, I didn't mean driving the whole way, just flying into Colorado, like originally planned, and then renting a car and driving the rest of the way.

No, it's easier to just have her meet him in denver so he can turn back around and fly back with them in the same day, he only has two weeks off so he doesn't wanna spend much time traveling.

Oh I totally understand that I just meant, if she is refusing, there isn't much you can do about it I hate when one parent won't play fair with the other. It's about the kids and what's best for them, not about us.

exactly, she just has no common sense.
Sorry she is stupid and is on probation, but that's not DH's fault and he shouldn't have to pay extra and be burdened because of her choices..
He still hasn't been able to get ahold of her but hopefully she realizes that idea was just dumb and agrees to Denver

Yeah, it's only 4 hours from Denver to Casper. I've driven it many times, lol.

I understand not wanting to do the drive, but it isn't too bad of a distance way.
