Make sure to bring a map or GPS so you don’t get lost, and plan your route ahead of time to avoid heavy traffic. If you come across any interesting spots or attractions along the way, be sure to stop and check them out.

Spend some quality time with your mom by doing a DIY project together. Whether it’s painting a picture, creating a scrapbook, or making a homemade gift, the time you spend together will be priceless. Consider your mom’s interests and hobbies, and choose a project that will allow you to spend quality time together while tapping into her creativity.
