May I go away for a family vacation/shabbos during shloshim for my mom

Question:

May I go away for a family vacation/shabbos during the shloshim for my mom.We usually go away only in the summer as the kids are off and wont be able to do it again until next summer.Also this is during the year of my father’s passings we haven’t done anything in the last 7 months.

Answer:

This would be permitted, as long as it isn’t going on a trip with a crowd, such as a few families together. However one family that is going on a vacation would be permitted, especially if it is needed.
