Your kids tell you that Mother’s Day is all about you, but they lie. If that were true, you would spend the afternoon going wild with a pitcher of sangria and a cellphone set to airplane mode. Instead, you’re wrangling a 2-year-old into a car seat so you can go commemorate your special day. That’s OK. On Father’s Day, you can ship Dad off for family fun and plant yourself on a barstool. Celebrate being a mom by being a mom — and make it fun for all parties, right? The Dallas Zoo (650 S. R.L. Thornton Freeway) gives you a different kind of wild experience for Mother’s Day during the Paw Prints Art Show from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Sunday. Stroll through tents filled with fine art, sculpture, photography, jewelry, ceramics and more while you share time with your own little monkeys. When you’re full up on art, scope out everything from elephants to koala bears — and treat yourself to a camel ride. You deserve it. Admission to the zoo is $12 to $15 and the art show is included in admission. Visit dallaszoo.com.
