With Mother’s Day fast approaching (May 12, 2013) it is time to start thinking about what you can do to make Mom feel special. Yes, breakfast in bed is a time honored tradition (that usually comes with the work of cleaning up the kitchen for Mom), and there is always a Mother’s Day brunch, lunch, or dinner… But how about doing something extra special and different? How about taking Mom to Cape Cod for a relaxing spa weekend? On Saturday Mom can get pampered while Dad takes the kids off to explore Cape Cod. The family can reconvene for dinner on Saturday, and a nice breakfast or brunch on Sunday followed by some family exploring of the Cape.
Sounds like great fun for the whole family and what a way to make Mom feel special…
