PEORIA HEIGHTS, Ill. -- Some families enjoyed this Mother's Day by taking in outdoor activities.

Forest Park Nature Center hosted a Mother's Day Hike

Families got a chance to enjoy the park and the hiking trail.

"We've never taken a family hike and I thought it would be something different and unusual and I'm also trying to get my kids outside more," said mother Cindy Schairer-Kessler.

Each mother attending the park received a small gift after the hike for mother's day.
