    "Don't come pick us up" is more common in the United States. I do not know about the UK or other places.


    "Don't come to pick us up." The second one sounds wrong to the ear. You would think it would be like food. (Go to the store and pick up some bread). However, it's not. Just use the first one for this sentence. It's so common that to change it makes people think it is wrong. Three people answered and we all immediately said the first one.

    The first one.
