This move has subjected to kids to either:
a) have to be in the car for 3 hours every weekend to and from activities + the time IN the activities
b) we all have to uproot ourselves from my home and spend the weekend at my parents which are close to the activities (my ex doesn't seem to have a problem with this and is pushing for this). Uprooting ourselves every other weekend does not only not provide a stable home environment for my kids while they're with me, but we're all living like nomads every other weekend.

The kids also expressed their interest to STOP their activities, which is when i started speaking up, but it's not working.

That's for their current activities. However she "warned me" that she will enrol them in "new" activities which will even further affect weekends, and i told her that she doesn't have my consent for that. So even if she books something new, i know that i don't have to take them due to the fact that i bolded and underlined my non-consent.

The question is whether or not I legally have to take them to their current (status quo?) activities despite their wishes when they're with me, or i have the legal right to make decisions for them when they're with me?
So your moving turning things upside down it seems.

You are simply paying the price of putting your desire to live closer to fiance and work before your children's best interests?

I don't know how you would get much pity from a judge. Your are merely trying to cloud over the reality that it was your decision to move.

You made your bed and now you have to lie in it.
