Local Mother’s Day Specials

This weekend is a special time for moms and their children to spend time together.  Whether your kids are young or old, it does not matter.  Whether you go out for a nice Mother’s Day Brunch, cook  at home or order take out, it does not matter.  What does matter is the time you spend together celebrating the love you have for each other!

Some of us mom’s may enjoy a day fishing, hiking or going to a local park.  I prefer to just be with my family, so a day grilling out,  fishing and planting flowers is how we plan to spend Sunday. Some may want a day out of the house exploring our local attractions, so we have put together a list of Oklahoma City attractions that are offering specials for moms this weekend.
