It's Mother's Day! Some of you may have spent it cooking out, playing at the park with your kiddos, or dining at your favorite restaurant.
Others spent it at Luthy Botanical Garden in Peoria, taking a container-garden class. Folks learned the ropes of gardening from an instructor and were able to pick their favorite plants, vegetables and herbs for their container garden.
"Mother's Day some times it's hard to figure out what to do with moms, dads, or whatever and the restaurants are full. That's a really cool thing to do with mom but this is something special to do with mom, it's another good option," stated Bob Streitmatter, the garden manager.
Staff said it's the first year they've offered the class. They added it's been a popular class with a large waiting list. If you are looking for something fun to do with your kids, they offer things throughout the year.
