16 hours away from my parents. Would moving to half that distance be worth it?

We are trying to decide if we should make a move from western Colorado to the Front Range of Colorado to be closer to my parents and brothers in Nebraska. My husband has 2 brothers thereand I get along great with their wives. I think our kids (9 and 15) would adjust. I had to travel alot this past year since my parents are almost 80 and are dealing with health issues and I can't afford to fly from where we are.
Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. Family can sure complicate things but that's ok. We decided to make the move since my husband was offered a job in Lakewood. I'm a mountain girl so we will be looking in the foothills. I tell my parents it's their fault that I moved to Colorado because, as a kid, that is where we vacationed every summer :-) Our son is a skier and we hike, fish, camp, and cross-country ski alot as well. Take care.

We live about the same distance from family. It's an awkward distance because it's difficult to do the drive in one day, but it's costly and time consuming to spread it over two. We would definitely see each other more if we only lived 7 or 8 hours away.

I expect that we will move eventually, but in our case, I think we'll just move back to the same city where our family lives now.
