Mother’s Day is coming up! If you have not already gotten her a special gift, consider taking a look at the Sun & Ski Sports 2021 Mother’s Day Gift Guide for ideas. After you get the gift, what’s next? Are you planning on heading out to a crowded restaurant to celebrate? Or staying in? Let us break away from the every day, and do something different by adding a bit of adventure to celebrate Mother’s Day. Let’s take a look at 5 fun activities to celebrate Mother’s Day!
An Early Morning Walk
One way to celebrate Mother’s Day is to start the morning off right. Depending on your mom, she may or may not be a morning person. But especially if she is one, this would be a perfect start to her morning. Join her for an early morning stroll and hear the birds chirp as the dew slides off the grass. Or see the wildlife munching away as they retreat back into the forest when the sun comes up. It won’t only get the blood pumping, but the morning air will pave the way for a day celebrating her! Besides walking, you could also join her for a morning tai chi or yoga session. Afterward, grab a bite to eat or go the extra mile and make breakfast.
Take a Trip to the Water
After an early morning of walking or yoga, now is the time to spend some time and relax. With that, maybe a trip to the beach or lake is in order. So, grab the kids, towels, umbrella, a book, some snacks, and of course, some sunscreen, and head off to the water. Sitting down and listening to the waters lap at the shoreline with the cawing of the seagulls along with soaking up some rays is something every mom needs. Let her sit down and relax with the book, or maybe getting a beach volleyball game going for some competitive fun.
A Midday Picnic
With some time under the sun’s rays, or after a hard-fought game of sand volleyball, you may want to have lunch. By preparing a picnic ahead of time, it’ll be ready whenever you are. No matter where you go whether it be at the beach, lake, or park, you’ll need an insulated cooler like a YETI Hopper® M30 Soft Cooler or a Yeti Tundra® 45 Limited Edition Cooler (perfect for mom) to help keep your food nice and cold. Pack some sandwiches and drinks for a simple picnic meal or spice it up with some salads and rotisserie chicken. Bring your mom’s favorite bottle of wine and pair it with a charcuterie board and a YETI Wine Tumbler 2-Pack.
An Evening Bike Ride
Since you’ve been relaxing throughout the day with mom, next it’s time to build up an appetite for dinner! Now is the perfect time to go on a bike ride for the entire family. Be sure to grab the all-important helmets and cruise around the neighborhood or park! Talk about the day you had as you feel the breeze rush around you. Maybe race the kids to a location or just simply ride at a leisurely pace. Surely, it has been a great day. If mom doesn’t have a bike yet, maybe this would be a perfect time to get one. If you are not sure what bike to get, read our blog article on choosing the right bike. Or, stop by your local Sun & Ski Sports and talk to one of our expert bike techs to see what kind of bike is right for her.
Fire Up the Grill
The sun is setting on a great Mother’s Day. You’ve probably built up an appetite from all the activities you had throughout the day. Fire up the grill to end a wonderful day celebrating mom and spending quality time with the family. Imagine watching the sunset with mom and the kids as your grill up some steaks, burgers, veggie kabobs, or whatever else you want to throw on there. Sounds like a perfect day to us!
Moms play an important part in our lives. And while we should make her feel special every day, Mother’s Day is the day to make her feel extra special. What better way to make it extra special than with family? Because the best adventures we can have, are the ones we have together. Happy Mother’s Day from us at Sun & Ski Sports.
