If you have to solo parent for a weekend (or weekends in general) do you stick around? Or do you go visit family, etc?

I have to solo parent for a full weekend at least once a month when my husband is on call. Sometimes we stick close to home, but then I get annoyed that he's not around to help me! Occasionally we'll drive to my parents (1.5 hours away) for those weekends so I have company and an extra hand with the kids.

We have one of those weekends coming up and I'm debating what to do.

What do you do when you have to solo parent all weekend?
