    Since you are going for 6-7 days, perhaps you can consider letting both your mother in law and your mom taking the responsibility 50/50. So, your mother in law can have them for the first 3 days, then your parents can have them for the next 3 days. This way you can be a little more comfortable about going and your kids can have fun with both set of grandparents! At the same time, your mother in law may not be offended since you will make it clear to her that you trust her as much as you trust your own mom.

    Good luck!

    Leave them with the mother in law. She seems the "doting" type, so you wouldn't have to worry about them being taken care of. Show her you trust her, it will pay off for you down the road. ...And don't forget to thank her for helping out so you could spend time with your husband.
