North Texas breathes a life of its own in May. It is patio season and all over town people are enjoying dining al fresco - with cool breezes, Venetian views in Las Colinas, and small town vibes in downtown.

I once read that “Motherhood is powered by love, fueled by coffee, and sustained by wine.” This quote got me to chuckling, but I don’t think it’s entirely true. We moms run on so many other awesome things that we might not always get, but we love so dearly like mani-pedis, chocolate, movies, and late-night Netflix binge when everyone else is asleep. So to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, we’ve put together a fun itinerary, featuring some of the things mentioned above, for moms to make the most of the holiday in Irving.

Ho-Ho-Holiday Happenings in Irving

Saturday, November 21, 2020 3:00 PM by Karen Cooperstein

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Irving. Trees are getting decorated early this year, twinkling lights are making their way up and Santa is popping in here and there to see who has been naughty or nice. Make the most of this holiday season and get in the spirit with some of the fun activities coming to town.

 

One of my favorite summertime activities is to visit our local museums and art galleries. Experiencing culture, fine arts, and history in a peaceful and thought-provoking setting satisfies my need for adventure. Unfortunately, this year has brought us social distancing and limited indoor activities instead. If you're like me during these times, you're choosing patios over dining rooms and outdoor workouts over indoor gyms.

So what are we to do when we want to see local art in Irving while remaining outdoors? Luckily, Irving is chock-full of incredible outdoor sculptures and art installations to get us through until we can fully enjoy the likes of the Irving Arts Center halls and Irving Archives exhibits; both of which are actually offering virtual tours so be sure to check those out.
