Llama Llama, Love Your Mama

 

Mother’s Day is THIS SUNDAY! You still have a few days to go buy something nice for Mom or get an order in on Amazon. DO IT. Don’t wait. Moms deserve it.

 

Looking for a gift? What would any mom want more than to spend some quality time with her kiddos at a REALLY FUN PARTY in a couple of weeks?!

 

Bring your mama to hang with The Social Llama at Ranger Creek on May 26th. We’ll be taking over the brewery from 5 to 9pm with my FOOOOORE-th birthday Golf Getdown.

 

RSVP here! Share with your mom.

 

And if you’re a mom reading this — HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! Thanks for being you.
