We've been very busy here at the Journal offices getting ready for a special Mother's Day tribute to our local businesses and families. I have been extremely lucky to find that local retailers were happy to help out and outfit some folks. It's been a good opportunity for me to meet some business owners I would not have normally had the chance to. And I have had the chance to work with a couple of great moms and some pretty super kids.  

The Oak Park Conservatory has been an enormous help in allowing our brainstorm to become reality. And I'm really looking forward to highlighting some of the fantastic things they are doing over there as a part of this special printed section in the paper. 

Meg our esteemed manager of OakPark.com was able to put together a short video for you highlighting some of the experiences we had while "on location" at the Oak Park Conservatory this past week. It was a fun Saturday, especially since George was feeling very chatty.  

Don't forget it's Easter this weekend. Geppetto's Toy Box is selling real Easter Grass kits and has some great basket stuffers under $5. It is only because of my limited time that I wasn't able to get out and really highlight all of the fun things they have going on there. I have been there 3 times in the last month to get some birthday presents and should have taken photos each time I got in there. 

Check back shortly after this week for a great highlight of their shop and some of the fantastic things they have for outdoor activities.
