Plenty of time in the near future I'm sure once they are older.
Our last night away was April 2011 (anniversary). In a couple of months we have a wedding in the country so we are staying the night without the kids. We might even do something for our next anniversary 2013.
ATM I'm saving for a family holiday 2015 to Fiji or Noosa for our 10 year, I want the kids with us!

The time their at school aside, never. I live a long long way from any of my family and dps family are in the area but all work crazy stupid hours every week so unless it's an emergency we don't ask for them to watch the kids. I do have a couple of friends nearby but I kinda feel guilty asking them to babysit iykwim.

I grew up next door to my grandparents and loved having sleepovers at their place. My sister and I were spoilt rotten by them. We live on the other side of the country from grandparents and I feel sad for my kids that they'll never get to experience that (only because I know how much I loved it).
As for our time away fromthe kids, we get more now the kids are older, but only once every few months for a night out after the younger 2 are asleep. I personally think it's only a problem if one parent wants time away as a couple and it doesn't happen. I know a few older women who are divorced who comment that their husband wanted more couple time but didn't get it. We've found it harder to get couple time in the evenings as dd1 goes to sleep later and then we're tired and go to bed. So long as whatever you do works for both of you.

He goes to his dads every friday til 6pm and then every second weekend. If i had my way it would be hardly ever, I am lost without him... its like i'm without my right arm.

At this stage df and I get no time alone together without at least katelyn. A "date night" for us is jasper being baby sat and we take katelyn out with us to dinner.
DF gets almost unlimited time without the kids though. And it's starting to truly **** me off. Though he's not been out since our last disagreement regarding him going out and as far as I'm concerned HE can't go out leaving me home with the kids at night to get dinner and get them to bed etc until I'M able to leave him with both kids. Because he thinks because I'm a mum it's somehow easier for me. :-/

We knew that once having kids it would not be just us anymore and are absolutely fine with it. We have our time when the kids are in bed. We love having our kids with us, they aren't a burden. They have completed our lives. We didn't have kids so they could be babysat all the time! You will have more understanding when you become a parent, your life changes, your priorities change!

About 1-2 a month my parents will have him, probably only overnight every 3-4months but as he gets older and wants to spend the night with them then it may increase or decrease!
Usually its a social gathering/event we are going to rather than spend time just together. We go out alone for dinner on our wedding anniversary and sometime around our birthdays for a joint birthday celebration.
I grew up with both sets of grandparents close and loved spending time with them and staying with them. I am glad my child (soon to be 'ren') have that opportunity.
