Mother’s Day in Vancouver: Ten events just for moms (and a few for the kids)

Yes it’s lovely to spend Mother’s Day with the family, but you know what’s even better? Yes, you guessed it, spending it without the kids (can you say “me time”?). We’ve gathered up some great outings you can take with friends, your own mom or by yourself. Think a workout, wine tasting, big laughs for moms, flower arranging or sketching. NB: There are a few that can be done with kids if you so choose.
