“Motherhood is one of the funniest things to laugh about. Kids keep us on our toes, make us say stupid things, and even make us do crazy things.” Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday May 9th, so I thought I would share some local Mother’s Day Events happening in the Greater Lafayette Area! Celebrate with Mom all weekend long, and don’t forget the flowers!
Let’s give our moms another fond memory this Mother’s Day! Here are some fun ideas to make memories with Mom locally.
