I usually try to do cheap holidays especially whilst the girls are young so spending $2000 tops for everything.
In a few weeks though we are off on a cruise which I consider pretty good price. $5500 for 3 adults and 4 kids (taking mum for a babysitter) for 9 days. We are also staying at a farmstay place for 5 days prior to the cruise too.

It depends on the type of holiday. We invested in a second hand campervan and we go away outside of school holidays (cheaper). We went on a holiday last year and the only money we spent was on our van site and food. The kids had so much fun and we got to see a part of Aus we hadn't seen before.

We are going on two holidays next year one just to Fraser Island for a week at the start of the year then halfway through the year we are going down to the snow we were going to fly but we have a fully set up 4wd so now thinking of driving down and stopping by Sydney to see a few attractions there. And the year after we are taking 4weeks off and driving the tele track up to the cape. Pretty excited to start a few adventures.

As little as possible.
We plan on going away in the September/October school holidays. We have a van and plan on staying some time in a caravan park, and free camp some of the time as well. I'm hoping to get away with only spending $500 for the 2 weeks. That's park fees, fuel and food. We'll find free or very cheap activities to do so we can save there as well.

We don't have any kiddies (yet) and we are big on holidays, I'm a travel consultant so I'm easily tempted! The USA is our favourite destination. Last year we went for 12 days and spent around $12-$14k (can't remember which). Two years before that we spent closer to $20k, but that was for 3 weeks. Other holidays to Bali, Thailand etc are around $7k.
Other trips through work are a lot cheaper as they are mainly sponsered by airlines/tour companies/tourism organisations, so when we are offered these 'famils', they are very well priced - I went to the UK for 10 days for around $2500 inc spending money
I like my little luxuries - while we were in NYC, we stayed at The Plaza - it cost $1200 per night, but I don't regret it at all. We get limo transfers. We eat at Michelin star restaurants. We figure we may as well go crazy with these things while we can still afford them
