The kids and I and some of my siblings are going to go out of town today to visit 2 of my aunts. It is only about a 20-30 minute drive, but we will be crossing state lines from Missouri into Illinois. It should be fun. There will be between 15 and 17 of us there. Do you often go out of town to visit family? How far do you normally have to drive to see them?

I drive to see my hubbys family. Most of my family now lives 1300 miles or further away. Some of my in laws live about a 1/2 hour out. My mother in law is about a 2 hour drive away.

That does sound like a lot of fun. I guess we go see family at least every two months. We're about two hours away from the closest members of our family. Most of them are a good three hours away. We go see my sister, brother-in-law, and my grandparents most often when we take time off to go see family.

I have no family, neither in town or out of town. Well that's not totally true, I do have some uncles in other states, and of course aunts and cousins. But one of the uncles I've never met in my life, my mother never even spoke to him. Another uncle I only met him twice, and my mother hardly spoke to him at all in my life either. Hubby had a lot of family about an hour away from us. Still in NY state though. We used to go down and visit them, but haven't done so in years. He's had a pretty big falling out with the majority of his family. About 4 years ago he had a cousin do pretty much the exact same thing his father just did, so we haven't spoken to that entire side of the family since then. Now we're not even speaking to his parents. We're basically orphans now, lol.

My parents live about 45 minutes away, and most of my other family is about the same or maybe a little longer. I see my parents a couple times a month, and everyone else usually for holidays, birthdays, or anything else that the family gets together for.
