Did Mother’s Day sneak up on you? If you want to do something special with Mom, forgot to make reservations and have a limited to zero budget, never fear, we’ve got you covered.
Here are three things you can do that will help make both of your days special. Or maybe these suggestions will help you come up with your own ideas. Happy Mother’s Day!
1. Go for a hike. There are a lot of hiking trails in the Treasure Valley. You can try the Boise Foothills if the weather cooperates — Tablerock has trails on the front and back side or if you’re ready for a long hike, try Lucky Peak. If steep is you and your mom’s game, Cervidae Peak is the trail for you. You can find even more at the Ridge to Rivers website: ridgetorivers.org. Or you can take a stroll around the town or down the block. Revisit old and cherished memories.

2. Go for a drive. There are a number of fun sights to go see in the Treasure Valley, including the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial in Boise, or the Native American pictographs at Map Rock — that’s a leisurely ride on Idaho 45 south from Nampa High School, turn right on Map Rock Road.
3. Check out JoAnn’s Iris Garden in Eagle. There weren’t very many iris in bloom a week ago, but with the sun and a little rain, they should be pretty spectacular in this football-sized field of flowers.
