22 Hudson Valley Parent n May 2017 H ey, moms! This is the month we celebrate everything that you do for your children and families. Of course, your family's budget may not allow for what you really want: to hop on an airplane and spend a week being pampered at some exotic locale, but we had another idea that we'd like to share with your sons and daughters. They may not be able to send you on that dream trip, but they can get you out of town by visiting one of these Hudson Valley venues to help make you feel like you are a world away.
