I took my kids to see my mom for two days. She lives about 3 hours away. Usually, when I schedule a visit with her, she calls and cancels at the last minute because "something has come up." She did not cancel so we went and had a nice visit. My kids really enjoyed seeing their grandma. OTOH - my dad lives 15+ hours away. Neither me nor DH are in a position to take more than a day or two off work right now due to finances (don't work, don't get paid). I have told my dad on many occasions that we cannot afford to take enough time off to drive over there but would love for him to come here. In my last phone conversation with my dad he said his coming over this summer was out of the question as my sisters and their kids need him right now :( I guess I should expect that. I am trying to focus on the positive. At least mom is trying.
