Decorate a cake, take a walk in a garden, paddle a canoe, run a 5K, or count the butterflies...moms come in all different shapes, sizes, and styles, so it should be no surprise that there are so many ways to celebrate mom this weekend. Many attractions around the state including Beardsley Zoo  and Quassy Amusement Park  are offering free admission with the purchase of a child’s ticket. If a special meal out (and maybe a mimosa) is what you're after, sure you check out our picks for Mother’s Day breakfasts and brunches for Connecticut families.
