Happy Mother’s Day Weekend

Wishing all the mamas out there a very special Mother’s Day!

And an additional “shout out” to everyone who is helping to raise my kiddos. It truly takes a village, and I certainly couldn’t do it without mine!

As a mom, I feel like I’m almost always the one behind the camera. But I LOVE this picture my husband captured of me and the kids watching an Anna Maria Island sunset!

Mother’s Day Deals


Mother’s Day is officially less than one week away. If this catches anyone else off guard, you’re not alone. I thought it was the next weekend too. Regardless, it’s coming soon and it’s time to make plans. Or at least start dropping a lot of hints about what you’ve got in mind.

This will be my ninth Mother’s Day (with kids. Obviously, I’ve been celebrating my mom for a lot longer than that!) Over the years I’ve realized that I tend to have dreams in my head, but I rely on my husband to be a mind reader. It took me a few years to learn that I really need to be specific about my plans.

While the idea of sleeping in and being completely worthless on Mother’s Day is certainly appealing, in reality it never works for me. For starters, Mother’s Day is on a Sunday. Although we typically hit our late church service, the idea of sleeping in on a Sunday doesn’t really work. Once we’ve gotten up and gone to church, I love to DO something. Some of my favorite Mother’s Days have been the ones where we do a quick little day trip as a family.

Here are a few places I’ve found that are offering special deals for Mother’s Day. I’m sure there are a TON of others (these were just ones that popped up in my email this past weekend.)

  • Moms get in free at the Biltmore (details here.)
  • Moms get half price admission at Georgia Aquariums (details here.)
  • Moms get in free at Milwaukee Zoo (details here.)
  • Moms get in free at Zoo Atlanta (details here.)
  • Moms get in free at the Creation Museum (details here.)

Again, this is just a small sampling of places that offer free or discounted admission. Check in your area, or in an area that would be a reasonable day trip! What a fun way for you to make memories as a family on Mother’s Day. Also, don’t forget about all the places where Mom can eat free!

How do you want to spend your Mother’s Day?
