Honestly, I think if you planned it for a time when your step children weren’t scheduled to be with you it would be fine. I have a step mother and I’m never bothered when they go on holidays without me (then again, I’m 26 and don’t live at home). I think the fact that you’re visiting your family adds to this – I like my step mother’s family, they’re lovely and have always been so welcoming of us, but I don’t know how comfortable I’d be staying with them. If you were visiting your DH’s family, I think it would be different and would probably say to take the step kids along.

bridetobeonjune3 :  seems like a great time to do it, and maybe just plan a family vacation and tell them about it before you tell them about this trip, so they know they’re being included in family things. 

 No reason for your daughter and you and your dh not to see her grandparents. Enjoy your trip!

Visiting your family without them would be fine. Going to Disney World without them would not be.

bridetobeonjune3 :  I think it’s fine to visit your family without them. When I was growing up my Mom didn’t always bring my brother to visit my Step-Dads family, and vice verse with my Step-Dad and Step-sister (I lived exclusively with my dad so I went wherever they went). There were never any hard feelings by my brother or step-sister and If I didn’t live exclusively with my Mom I wouldn’t have been upset if they didn’t bring me. If it’s just to visit family there is nothing wrong with it.
