Outings & Trips

Mother’s Day Brunch or Dinner
Mother’s Day brunches are very popular. Find restaurants in your area that offer a Mother’s Day brunch. Make reservations well in advance. Another thoughtful option is to take Mom out for a nice dinner in honor of Mother’s Day.
Schedule a Day-Trip
Drive to a unique and creative destination with the whole family. That might be to a beach or hiking area, or a nearby city. Alternatively, Dad could plan ways to add a touch of romance to the getaway, for example, showing the kids where he proposed to Mom.
