We started having picnics on Mother’s Day when our children were really little. We would head over to the campus of the college where my husband teaches. The campus is always deserted around that time, and it’s only a few minutes from our house. We’d enjoy a stroll around the campus and then settle in for our picnic while the kids played.
Now they’re bigger–six and nine–so we go a little further afield. We go to a local state park, have our picnic, and then go for a two-mile hike. Still quiet and relaxing.
I’d love to win this giveaway. I do a little personal writing from time to time. I’d love to do more. I could really use some tips and ideas!
On Mother’s Day, my sister and I gave our mom a poetry book we had made based on the garden- she illustrated it and I wrote the poems, for flowers and a couple animals. It was fun and our mom loved it!
We also… went to the ballet (!!), ate frozen yogurt, watched a movie and went to church of course. It was a perfect day!
My family gave me a great Mother’s Day. They made me feel special and my husband tried to take the daily “burden” for me. I felt loved and am blessed to have a wonderful husband and children who love me.
On Mother’s Day my children made me chocolate chip waffles with homemade whip cream.
My Mother passed 6 years ago, my youngest daughter she is 16 saved up money and though her school bought me a potted plant….only on the Friday before Mothers Day …forgot it at school. She was so upset almost to the point of tears, I hugged her and thanked her for the plant. But she did not understand my thanks…I told her she gave me a wonderful gift she thought of me.
I went out to eat Chinese with my husband and children.
My kids blessed me by making me many homemade drawings and gifts.
We went out for breakfast as a family and the Farmer’s Market. My husband and kids also put up with standing in a long line at the food fair I really wanted to go to. It was a hot, beautiful day.
I adopted my SON as a single woman… It’s been a tough road but has been worth the sacrifices. On Mother’s Day he woke me up all excited.. You see he is five He had made a “Mother’s Day picnic breakfast — cereal and toast and juice Then he sang “Happy Mother’s Day” to the Happy Birthday Tune — my heart officially melted…
