It’s Wednesday.
And Sunday is Mother’s Day. The day you get together with not just your Mom, but the family. Always fun, always interesting.
If you and yo momma are looking for some cool things to do, not just on Sunday, but for the remainder of this entire week… then look no further. Posted below are all the cool things to do around town that are free… or pretty close to being free. Because, well, a mother’s love is truly priceless!
