garden gateIt should come as no surprise to you that here at TCMC, we love celebrating the mothers! We are a team of mothers who love and care for all kinds of moms with an understanding that we ALL deserve to feel celebrated every day!

Whether you love being in charge of all of the plans for your special day, or you just want to forward this along to someone else so you can finally not make a decision for once, we have some ideas for you! While some of these are planned events for Mother’s Day on Sunday, many of these are ideas you can use to celebrate moms all year round! Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be just one day!

Family Day | MIA | 2400 Third Avenue South, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55404

Every month the Minneapolis Institute of Art invites families, kids, and the young at heart to explore the museum with special activities, and this month it falls on Mother’s Day. The museum is filled with hands-on art activities, storytelling, artist demonstrations, gallery hunts, self-guided tours and more — all inspired by MIA’s incredible collection.

Time:10AM-5 PM

Mother’s Day Trolley Rides | Como-Harriet Trolley Line | 2330 West 42nd Street, Minneapolis, MN 55410

Step back in time and experience the way we once traveled to work, school, and play on the Como-Harriet Trolley Line. On Mother’s Day, moms ride for free! While you are here, check out the beautiful Lake Harriet, enjoy a stroll through the gardens, take a bike ride around the lake, grab food and drink in the Linden Hills neighborhood, and so much more!

Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden | Theodore Wirth Regional Park | 1 Theodore Wirth Pkwy, Minneapolis, MN 55405

As long as the weather cooperates, I always request a visit to Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary on Mother’s Day. This 16-acre native plant reserve is the oldest public wildflower garden in the United States. Mother’s Day is usually the time when the first spring wildflowers are just awakening and it is one of the loveliest ways to spend a Sunday afternoon. The mulched and boardwalk pathways total less than a mile in length as they wind through the woods and wetlands of Theodore Wirth Park. The beauty of this garden is how it changes and grows as the season progresses so you can make your first visit in May and then come back in June to find out what is new.

The Garden season is from April 15th to October 15th and weekends only between Oct. 15 and Oct. 31. The Garden gates are open from Tuesday – Sunday 7:30 AM until 6 PM; Thursdays – 7:30 AM to 6 PM; closed Mondays. The Visitors Shelter opens at 10 AM and there are great little spots to have a picnic before or after your visit.

Pack a picnic or grab your favorite carryout and treat mom to her favorite local draft at one of these great Breweries in the Cities. Or check out Utepils Brewery after your visit to Eloise Butler Garden. With their amazing backyard overlooking the creek, you’ll never want to leave.

Take a stroll through your favorite garden center, like Tonkadale in Minnetonka, and start adding color to this year’s garden!

See what’s fresh and in season at one of many local farmer’s markets already open for the season. A farmer’s market in spring is always buzzing with excitement!
