Even if mum is pushing it, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to make sure the kids get some one on one time with their dad. I don’t think it has to be a massive expensive activity but even just a quiet 10min walk or something would be good bonding. There may be stuff they want to talk to him about that would be hard in a group setting, and even if they don’t, one day they might:)
If they want one one one time with their dad let them. You go and have some one on one with your kids. I honestly wouldn't worry about it but always follow up with a family activity that includes everyone
Maybe they're wondering if you and your kids are going to be doing something even more fun that they'll miss out on if they go with their dad?
I like the idea of having two planned activities (so a bike ride, and fishing) and one family activity and swapping them. So dad and kids go bike riding while you and yours go fishing. Then when they get back from their ride, you guys go for a ride while they fish. Then meet up for a combined activity. Everyone gets both family time and one on one time
