I don't know about you, but I find it so difficult getting my kids outside to burn off energy during the late Fall and Winter months! It's dark by 5pm! I mean, I could strap some flashlights to their heads and send them running off outside but that seems like a recipe for disaster! What's a mom to do with a house full of stir crazy kids?! Check out the classes at The Little Gym, that's what! I am so happy with the classes my kids are taking at the Little Gym in Orem, not only are they burning off that surplus of energy but they are also cultivating life skills!
You know The Salt Project loves Ogden, but we especially love things made in Ogden. Luckily, there is a company ALLLL about it.
I've had this hike on my to-hike list for at least two years. Trying to find a time when my kids and I had pretty much all day to spend hiking and playing since Diamond Fork Canyon is about an hour away from where we live. Summer came and this year went and my boys started school. Then Utah started putting on quite a show with fall colors, so I took advantage of a Friday when my boys were off and we set out in the morning along with three other moms from our Hike it Baby family.
Tonight my husband and I took our kiddos, ages 1 and 3 to Illuminate at The Gateway in downtown Salt Lake. Illuminate is a light art and technology festival, the first of its kind here in Utah and I have to say I hope it’s around for many years to come. It’s a festival that appeals to both young and old and helps you really appreciate the city in a whole different light.
It's that time of year, holiday events are kicking off left and right! (Contains Affiliate Links.)
We know, it's been super quiet for a few weeks. I think it's the quiet before the calm. Stephanie is about to have baby number 5 (or maybe he/she is already here?!) and we are recovering from sickness, because dang Halloween.
Then I just realized it's like, November 8TH! We've been hiking almost every week and now what am I going to do in Winter?! I'm hoping since my kids are a tiny bit older (3 &5) that we can get some winter hikes done. So here's one of our winter staples.
We go to the library. WAY more than we do any other time of the year.
The American West Heritage Center is located in beautiful Cache County. It is a wonderful place where you can learn about and experience the diverse cultures that shaped the valley between 1820 and 1920.
Friends, if you've never heard of the "Cat Park", it's your lucky day! Steenblik Park, aka the "Cat Park" is a favorite playground of Salt Lake City locals who live in the Rose Park neighborhood.
We went to the Halloween Carnivore Carnival at the Eccles Dinosaur Park and had such a great time! It was really fun to get to visit the park at night, as this is the only time of the year that you can. The whole place was lit up with nearly 5,000 strands of colored lights and Halloween decorations and the whole atmosphere was fantastic!
