Worried about our upcoming trip

Dh and i are goin to Vegas in 2 weeks with his company. We'll be gone from the 4th through the 8th. We have to be at the airport at like 5am which is an hour+ away, on the 4th so the kids are staying with their gparents the night before we leave also. So that makes 5 nights away from my babies :( Im dreading being away from them (specially the youngest) and i feel like a real shit head of a mom leavin my kids for that long. This is something we may never have the opportunity to do again and i do want to go, but i still feel awful about it. The company is paying airfare, hotel, 1 meal/day, a trip to the Hoover Dam, a cocktail party, plus the convention and a bus pass to get to and from the covention center. An opportunity like that may not ever come around again. Plus the convention has to do with dhs job. I just cant shake feeling like a shit! Am i a shit honestly??

Btw:
-kids are sd9 (will be between my mil and my mom m night through f after school then her mom gets her for the wknd), ds8 and ds6 (theyl be stayin at mils overnight and my moms after school along with sd), and ds4 who will be staying with my mom the majority of the whole time.
-dh wont go without me
-we've never been on a real vaca before (not even a honeymoon)
-The most ive ever been away from my kids is a night here and there for a sleepover at gps and ods spent 2 nights at my moms once but i still saw him during that time!

You are not a shit, honestly!

You are lucky to have family to keep the kids. We have to pay a babysitter if we want to go anywhere overnight.

Go and have fun. You deserve it!

 Thanks! Seriously though, they would NEVER do this if it didnt have to do with DH's work. The trip wouldnt even be an option if they couldnt stay with family.

 Another big thing is that my DS4 is ridiculously glued to my ass!! He's Momma's baby all the way. He's not a big fan of my mom either and thats who he will be with for the majority of the time.

My daughter is 5, just turned 5. I left her for 2 weeks with my parents when I took a vacation to France and Italy. It was my grad gift from my sister. I was nervous on the plane and then I got busy an it was fine! I had a blast and DD had a blast being spoiled! I skyped her everyday and all was good.
