Celebrate Mother’s Day with a Family Day Out – Nestle Family Giveaway

Mother's Day

What do you normally do on Mother’s Day? Do you stay home and relax? Go out to eat?

This will be my 5th year celebrating Mother’s Day for myself; before that it was all about my mami. Of course, that means that I share the celebrations with my mom now. Usually, this means I do a little relaxing at home with my family and then visit my mother for the other half of the day. I think once we all went out to eat together. But, we’ve never really done a family day out for Mother’s Day. I think maybe next year I will plan a beach trip so we can all enjoy the wonderful May weather and both my mom and I can relax by the ocean.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, Nestle Family is currently holding a national giveaway on their site and also offering a giveaway for ModernMami.com readers.

We go to church in the morning and then head to my mom's house for a pool party. The guys do most of the cooking and cleaning up so we can relax.

Mother's Day sometimes I'll visit my Mom, but usually she just wants to relax that day.

Sometimes my husband will buy me a small bottle of my favorite perfume, but usually it's just the kids making me a really crappy breakfast (with love though! LOL), and some homemade cards 🙂

Usually my husband and kids let me sleep in and they make me a nice breakfast and perhaps clean up the house. I always get some excited kids giving me beautiful handmade gifts which is just awesome and then we go to church. The afternoon is lazy and spent doing something fun as a family.

My sister and I call our mom in Korea the Saturday night before, so that it's after noon in Korea. We also send out flowers to our paternal grandmother and at least a card to our “grandmother” in KY. My best friend also receives a card, and she has given us cards for being the Godmothers to her children.

My kids wake me up with breakfast in bed (usually made with the help of either Dad or McD's), then they give me presents and cards and tell me how much they love me. After that they all disperse and I spend the rest of the day doing anything I want. My hubby takes care of everything and I have to do nothing. It's fantastic!!! We usually go out for dinner since I don't cook on Mom's Day!!

we normally celebrate mother day by doing whatever mom wants. This year, she wanted us all at the cottage, so we drove almost 2 hours to make sure we were with her on mother day.

Mother's Day is usually pretty low key in this family. With so many mothers involved, it usually consists of cards, flowers and maybe a family meal.

Thank you for the giveaway. We normally start by my waking up to handmade cards and then have dinner at my favorite place in town. This year was different…I was out of state during mother's day and spent it with my family in California as well as calls from my kids. When I got off the plane last night, my husband and kids took me to dinner! I also came home to a oversized mother's day card and a handmade picture.
