If you decide you want a quiet Mother’s day with just your children, eat a healthy breakfast and take the kids to a park for the day. Pack a nice lunch and grab a few kites for the kids and find the lagoon so the little ones can feed the ducks. Give Mom a treat and let her relax and enjoy the day why dad helps the kids fly the kites and bring popcorn along for the ducks. This is another occasion for your family to have a camera on hand. These are good memories and the pictures alone will make good memories of how the family has changed throughout the years.
