I am about to take the kids on a 5 hr road trip to spend 4 nights near my parents. They have a yappy dog, a small ranch home (1200 sqft) and we really don't have a very good relationship. Is it really weird to get a hotel for me and the kids? We are planning on spending lots of time playing in my folks back yard and going to some fall festivities together but I really would love some time away from them in the evening and a more child friendly sleeping zone.
Should I just suck it up cuz it's free to stay with them or take my hubby's hotel points and get a hotel room?
I'd definately prefer the hotel, but I'd probably end up sucking it up and staying with family. Whenever we go up to see Brian's family or over to see my family, we always stay with them since we don't see them that often and they'd be hurt if we didn't stay there.

Many Many Thanks to GraysMama (Chelsea) for my AMAZING Siggy!!!
Depends on the family members. There are some that I wouldn't mind staying with and would probably prefer it because it would give us extra spending cash which means more fun things to do. However, there are others that I would not stay with at all and a hotel would be vital.
In your case, I'd probably get a hotel.

well im at my folks house. decided it made more sense. although i had to remove a shot gun from the room the 3 big kids are in, my clothes smell like moth balls and my dads bad joke caused me to puke from biting a 1-yr old cupcake.
but the kids r having fun, and the bonus is we have money to do the pumpkin patch rides on sunday.
