5 FUN ways to spend Mother's Day!

Mother's Day is coming up and if your guy is anything like mine, he needs very obvious clues on what I would like to happen on any special day. He is a great husband, and great dad but ask him to plan anything and he looks like a deer caught in headlights. So, show this post to your guy, add in some of your own ideas and get ready for the best Mother's Day yet! You deserve it!

ways to spend Mother's day

1. Wake up with the kids and get busy
In the kitchen that is! Spend the morning with the kids making breakfast in bed for mom. They will love helping out in the kitchen with Dad and delivering that tray to mom will be so much fun! Breakfast in bed is so cliche, but oh so amazing! Add in some bonus points and have the kids make a card and put a flower on the tray! 

2. Find a tour of your town and surprise her 
This is something no one would be expecting, but such a fun way to spend the day. Tucson has some ghost tours and though it is not something I would ever plan to do, I would love to go on one! Maybe your town has a walking tour, or a horse carriage tour? Nothing right in your town? Take a drive and explore a nearby city. 

3. Pack a lunch and head to the park
No, not a playground park but an actual park where you can take a nature hike or check out some of the scenery around you while you snack on a picnic. Cross two things off and gift her an amazing picnic basket to use. Kids LOVE picnics, so it will be a fun day. Whatever you do, make sure you plan the entire thing! 

4. Take in the Sunset
Pack special drinks for the kids and the adults, find a spot and enjoy the sunset! Maybe it's just your backyard, with the fire pit going, or a mountain lookout near you. Wherever you decide, it will be the start of a nice tradition and something she will never forget! 

5. Plan a date night after the kid's go to bed
Listen I know it's a Sunday night, which is a weird night for a date, but you made her a mom so chances are she wants to be around you. Put the kids down, get a sitter and head for a late dinner or even a night cap. That way she is with her little loves all day and her big love the night of Mother's Day; perfection! 

We all want a day where we don't have to think of activities or spend the day in the kitchen. So, happy planning and most importantly 

Happy Mother's Day!
