Best Places to Take Mom on Mother’s Day in Amarillo – Mary Lyn’s Top Five.
Mom, what do you want for Mother’s Day? Her her answer? You know. “Don’t buy me anything, I have everything I need.” Then comes the family meeting to figure out what she really wants. Think about Mother’s Day gifts from Mother’s Day past-ugh. Lottery tickets? NASCAR t-shirts? Vacuum cleaner? Really? Let’s get a game plan people.
First, get Mom out of the house….so you can CLEAN it.
#1. Best Place To Take Mom On Mother’s Day – Ambassador Hotel
The Ambassador Hotel has a fantastic Mother’s Day package that includes, elegant standard guest room on floors 1 – 8, mom’s gift bag full of gourmet goodies, discount coupons for special fun at area restaurants and stores, and a beautiful fresh flower bouquet.
And if she can’t make it Mother’s Day weekend, she’ll have a “staycation” card she can play when she wants to run away from home for a weekend. Then, give her a day-off.
#2. Best Place To Take Mom On Mother’s Day – Bella Luna Day Spa -Body Elegance
Bella Luna Day Spa – Body Elegance is an amazing place to ‘get away’ from the stresses of life and relax. With many too many services to list, I recommend the combination body message and facial and get them for as much time as you think your Mom would enjoy. They’ll put together an experience that Mom will really appreciate and enjoy.
#3. Best Place To Take Mom On Mother’s Day – Picnic at Thompson Park
Pack a picnic. My suggestions-chicken salad, lemon squares, almond iced tea. There’s plenty of shade with the canopy of trees that Thompson Park offers-I like the patch of grass just behind Wonderland Park. Or, just find the park closest to the house. P.S. After the meal, clean up while Mom takes a power nap under the trees.
#4. Best Place To Take Mom On Mother’s Day – Joe Taco’s
I love Joe Taco’s. Feels like a Santa Fe weekend every time I sit out on the patio. With great service, live music, fun people and an amazing menu; you can’t go wrong taking mom here for her special day. Their green sauce is fantastic and Mom will appreciate the portions-so she can order dessert without the guilt.
#5. Best Place To Take Mom On Mother’s Day – Amarillo Botanical Gardens
Amarillo Botanical Gardens is an amazing place to take mom. While touring through the garden, you can actually forget that you are still right in Amarillo. They have indoor and outdoor landscapes that will totally surprise her. And a membership would be a fantastic add on gift. It’s an oasis in the middle of Amarillo and a great getaway when she feels like taking a walk in the garden.
I miss my Mom, she’s been gone 4 years now, but I remember one Mother’s Day . We barged into our parents bedroom, one knock on the door and then jumped on the bed with our homemade cards and breakfast on a tv tray filled with burnt muffins and cold coffee. She sipped the coffee, ate the muffin(one bite) and read the cards. She sat back in her bed, stretched out her arms and gathered us all up and gave us one big giant hug and sighed: ”I love you all and everyday is Mother’s day for me”. It made me feel good, It made me feel loved. Make her feel as special as she makes you feel, everyday.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.
