Step 1: Consider like interests Plan a weekend where both of you will enjoy the day's activities. Mix up the weekend with different plans -- a little sightseeing, shopping, and eating.
TIP: If you share an interest, whether it's hiking, golf, or knitting -- make sure to include that activity in your weekend planning.
Step 2: Vacation with a theme Vacation with a theme. Choose a spa getaway or a wine-tasting adventure.
Step 3: Stay home If you don't want to travel, you can still plan a special weekend together. Eat at restaurants you have always wanted to try or visit nearby towns you never seem to have time to explore.
Step 4: Visit family Visit family. Go stay with another relative you haven't seen for a while. If you have a sibling who lives out of town, take mom to visit there.
Step 5: Schedule down time Schedule down time to talk and reminisce. You may discover things about your mom you never knew.
