We did a quick survey to find out what some moms want for Mother's Day.
The answers were quite cute and some of them were funny: time with the
kids, time without the kids, a kiss, a phone call, peace and quiet,
brunch with the family, zip lining, paddling the Beaver River and a
visit to Scandinave Spa were all close to the top of the list. One thing
for sure...no mommy should be cooking on Sunday.
