Letting the kids miss a day of school for vacation?

So Friday we leave for vacation, it's not a very long trip but we do need to be on the road at an early-ish hour. I'm going to let them stay out of school and I know some people would call this terrible. I don't care, lol. They rarely miss school so this one day isn't going to be a big deal. And it's Bub's birthday Friday so it's a bit of a treat for him.

Have you ever let your kids stay out of school for a vacation? When you were a kiddo did your parents ever let you miss school for vacation?
