Hard as it is to believe, May is here, and Mother's day is this weekend. It snuck up fast, and if you haven't gotten your mom anything, you are running out of time. There is a ton you can get her or things you can take her to, but spending time with her is the best way to spend Mother's Day. While not everyone will be able to spend the weekend with their mom, plenty is going on this weekend to keep you busy or to take your mom to if you can spend time with her. Here are some of the events taking place this Mother's Day weekend in the Magic Valley.

If you are struggling with gift ideas for your mom this year, look no further than the second annual New Roots Vendor craft show. Craft shows are a great way to find local hand-made products that you can't find anywhere else, while also supporting local businesses. Take your mom and spend time with her shopping, or browse yourself for the perfect gift to give her. The show is from 9 AM until 4 PM on Saturday and will be at the Gooding Fairgrounds.

Don't forget this Sunday is Mother's Day. The main priority you should have this weekend is to spend time with your mom, call her, or remember her. Moms are what make the world work and keep all of us from killing each other. Make sure to appreciate yours on Sunday in a fitting way. Many of us get busy and don't take time to tell our mom we love them enough, so do so on Sunday.
