My MIL has specialists she sees in Toronto (35 minute bus ride) so when she's in town for a doc appointment we go see her. Otherwise she lives 5 hours north and we don't own a car and the train up isn't cheap. It's kinda tough.. we are happy to have her in town, but it usually means something is wrong enough that she needs to see the specilist. My FIL lives waaaaay on the other side of Ontario so getting there isn't cheap either. an hour and so flight with a 4 hour drive back to my DH's hometown. It would be nice to see them a little more, but the funds and time aren't there.

We see FIL only at holidays. He is a work-a-holic. We used to see MIL about once or twice a month when she was babysitting for my hockey nights. Then we went months w/o seeing her. She has started watching the kids during the day while I'm at work so I'll be seeing her 3x/week now...at least until she decides she doesn't want to do it anymore. We'll see!

We see my in-laws pretty often. They live about 25 minutes from us, so it's no big deal. They have a pool,

My inlaws live just a few miles from us and we get together with them usually a couple of times a month.

That is fantastic that you get along so well with your MIL.

My brother has a pool and we've yet to be invited this year. I tried to invite myself over last w/end and they were too busy.
