The mother purposely schedules activities that happen every weekend and the father isn’t ever able to take the children to see their grandparents or take the kids away for the weekend
Most court will not allow one parent to schedule activities on the other parent's time. You may want to go back to court to have the children w/out extracurricular activities scheduled on your time.
Ms. Mitler's response is what I would have stated. Get yourself back to the courthouse to file a motion for clarification, or a motion for orders, to make clear that your time should be freed up to allow for more of what you want to do with your children. That being said, if the children have regularly and routinely played sports on the weekend for a significant period of time, it is not fair to them to change that routine. Hire an attorney to assist you if you do wind up filing a motion.

This is not an uncommon problem, If you can't come to a compromise you should go back to court. The longer you wait this will become a pattern of behavior. The longer you wait the less liekly the Court will be to stop this behavior.
