This is a weird one I know, but it works for us.
First of all, I am still family with my ex's family... we go there for dinner and to visit any time we want to. We see them for all of the holidays and if we don't come they get upset.... they include my (new) husband and our daughter and my step daughters in their family too.
My husband's ex wife has recently (about a year and a half) started begin much more friendly toward us (she was in a bad situation with her new husband and has since left him and is much better off) . She is going to be bringing the girls to see us more often and said she'd like to spend more holidays together.
Now, to top all of this off..... Labor day weekend, the ex wife brought the girls to visit and we all went to my ex in-law's for a picnic..... they welcomed her and told her to come back anytime....
We actually like it this way, we all get along and it's great for the kids.
So...does anyone else have this kind of relationship with ex's or are we the only 'weird' ones? lol
