EDWARDS, Ill -- Two newborn bison calves were out celebrating Mother's day with hundreds of human moms.

Wildlife Prarie Park hosted a Mother's Day brunch with a full menu and banquet hall.

Molly Waller works at the local spa, Senara.

Of the two full-time jobs, she says being a mom is both more difficult and more rewarding.

"It's really special and it's a really wonderful community and just a day of getting out and honoring your mom," Waller says. "It doesn't have to be anything over-the-top. I think just the little things of enjoying a meal and especially getting outside on a day like the at Wildlife Prairie Park."

Families took a stroll around the park after brunch to work off the Mother's Day meal.

Some even stopped by to check out the new bison families.
