LOL I will be sure to do that! The trip isnt until last weekend in August!
Oh and to add to it my SIL (best friend) told our MIL sister what was going on. Our MIL sister understands how this woman works and can understand how she is with us and the guys...well apparently her sister told her MIL something about htis vacation along the lines that they shouldn't be going but I'm not sure what the outcome of that conversation is and wont find out until tonight when my SIL talks to her about it LOL.....atleast someone stood up for us!

Sounds like this women is all about control and that your husband ( bless his heart ) has been under her control all these years, so You Take Control For Him , You call her and tell her that there must be some kind of misunderstanding and that you Booked the vacation for you and your friends and it is a get away for the younger crowd, tell her that you would be more than happy to plan a trip with her next time around. And don't take no for an answer . If she thinks that you are rude, tell her " sorry that you feel that way but this is the way it is. Give it right back to her, and write down what is said so it never gets into a she said thing....
I don;t think men are mama's boys , that are often just very non confronters , or have over powering mothers and sometimes they are just very respectful to their mothers.
I wish I had a MIL that I enjoyed being around! Me and her always butted heads from the beginning of the realtionship! And you are totally right she has to be in control of their lives still one way or another! Its worse for my SIL though because she has to see her often when she invites herself to their house all the time not asking her if she minds or not! But some how it gets turned around on her or me that we are the bad guys in the situation if we say anything! The guys always turn it around on us....one of these days she is going to get a huge slap in the face from both of us (not literally LOL)
