Lake Country Family Fun Waukesha Frame Park

Mother’s Day Weekend Guide

More and More Businesses are opening and farmers markets are starting, with safety mitigation of course!

Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all the mothers out there!! It’s been a much different year this year. We have so much more responsibility if we have children that were attending school outside the home. Even more so if we are essential workers, single moms, or now having to juggle working from home plus distance learning our children…

…we’ve also been able to snuggle our kiddos more, catch more giggles, watch them grow and learn, watch their brains figure out new concepts, watch them free play, go on new adventures at parks and trails when open, find new favorite board games and movie picks…❤️

SO, there is SO much to do this weekend to celebrate you and the moms in your life. How will you spend your day on Sunday? Maybe like this funny meme… Will you go out to social distance with your extended family? Take Out Brunch it? Make a meal at home? Or do you carve in some alone time and enjoy the day sans-family? However you choose to celebrate is your choice, and we support that, spending the day exactly how you want! *We do strongly recommend that you join our Celebrating Moms Project and enter to win some fun local prizes!

If only we could pick the weather as it will be a bit chillier than last weekend with a chance of rain on Sunday. 

Because the weather will dictate our weekend plans and likely yours, here’s some ideas for enjoying the sunshine:

  • On Friday night, attend a local virtual concert such as Catelyn Picco’s Stand Strong concert. Blast the music to enjoy on your deck or patio!
  • Nearly all the WI State Parks are open again as of last week! Please clean up after yourself so we can all enjoy our beautiful resources. 🌳❤️
  • Hike at a local Waukesha County Park.
  • Some local farmers markets are opening on Saturday. See which ones HERE.
  • Kona Ice is heading to local neighborhoods. Get the details HERE.
  • Schedule a tee time. See which golf courses are open HERE.
  • Organize your garage. If we are at home, might as well get all the organizing done to make life easier.
  • Take a car ride through this drive-thru zoo OR drive thru light display. The light display ends on Sunday, May 10!
      • Gas is still super cheap, so take the kids on a short drive around to a destination. Please be mindful of using the restroom.
      • Tip: Have everyone go to the bathroom just before you leave the house so no one has to go while you are out AND/OR buy a portable toilet and bring sanitizer. We picked one up on Sunday, curbside, from Sherpers in Oconomowoc. 
  • Plant a native tree/shrub or perennial flower.
      • Fleet Farm’s Garden Center is open and offering curbside pickup.
      • We have gardening tips here.
      • *Fleet Farm is a supporting of Lake Country Family Fun.

And for inside fun, try these ideas:

  • Pick up the best cookie kit in Delafield and let the kids’ creativity grow!
  • Take a meal off from cooking and order takeout curbside.
  • Attend a drive-thru food drive on Saturday, May 9 from 9:00 – 12:00 p.m at St. Matthew’s Church (818 W. Wisconsin Street Oconomowoc).
    • Accepting non-perishable goods

{All things May and Social Distancing friendly in Waukesha County} 

Despite the uncertainty of the world right now, we at Lake Country Family Fun have been watching all the good happen. We found 10 creative ideas for community in the past few weeks.  On two Fridays ago, April 24, we partnered and delivered Chick-fil-A meals to staff at ProHealth Care in Waukesha, Pewaukee, and Oconomowoc. Plus, have you seen Lake Country Giving? What a wonderful service from an anonymous community member! Many of you poured your hearts out in support of Snips and Giggles on our Facebook Page, and we could not be more moved! Let us know what else you saw positive and heartwarming ❤️

Lastly, even with the positive, I say, breathe. I have said it multiple times now in weekend guides, social media posts and our e-newsletters, and I will continue to say it, because it’s something I remind myself daily. When I feel the overwhelm creeping in, when I feel the uncertainty settling in, when I feel unsure of the next move…I stop and breathe. Please breathe with me (from your house or at least 6 feet away 😉 )

So, we want to see all your physical distancing weekend fun! Turn these lemons into lemonade🍋 Be sure to tag @lakecountryfamilyfun in your weekend fun, your activities, your survival strategies, and we’ll be sure to share in our Facebook or IG stories. Thank you to those who tagged us last weekend!  🤗🥰

      • When it gets cold, or the government mandates that we all become socially distant (it’s actually physically distant – not socially distant), people tend to hibernate in their homes, and hibernation can lead to isolation. Please reach out! Please build a group of moms you can call in a pinch. And never hesitate to send an email or private message or comment below to us at Lake Country Family Fun💗
          • Start here: our MOMS GROUPS AND PLAY GROUPS GUIDE to the Waukesha County area for mom groups is a list compiled of 30+ community, church, and library play groups. Look over the list HERE, and know that many of the groups are continuing to meet virtually.
          • Do you have a village of moms/friends/family that you can count on? We posed this question to our Facebook page recently and love the answers coming through from both people seeking a village and those that are so grateful for their village. It’s our goal for everyone to feel connected and a part of a village that fits their lifestyle. 
          • Our Lake Country Family Fun Community Facebook Group is more active than ever. Please drop in any questions, ideas, comments,  or support. Have an idea for a blog post that would resonate with parents in the greater Waukesha County area? We are taking in contributors!
