OP I can understand how your family and in laws feel. My mother hates the fact she only sees the kids 4-6hrs on the weekend so she added a weekday visit after work so 6.30-8pm ish. Granted it's not ideal for me as I work and the kids need their bedtime but she really does adore the kids. So we have a deal. She comes and does bath/books/bedtime stories whilst I get the evening to catch up on housework.
When my dad visits I do the groceries or cooking for the week.
Make the visits work for you.
On an aside. I visit my grandparents every week after bath when the kids are in pjs. We go over for an hour or so. They would be devastated if we didn't visit weekly.
