Vineyard's Sports Park and Splash Pad

Lisel is here to tell us all about the newest park and splash pad in Vineyard Utah! Summer is winding down, but there are still plenty of hot days ahead! We went to check out the new Vineyard splash pad and it was awesome! It is the largest splash pad in Utah County on 18 acres of land. On this land there is also bike trails, pickle ball and tennis courts, a soccer field, basketball hoops, a pavilion, zip lines, and a ropes course style playground. ​Our favorite part about this splash pad was the slide! Olive, my toddler, went

Big Springs Hollow Hike

Alex is here to tell us about one of her favorite year round hikes with kids! Read on to see how she loves to hike during each season. Big Springs Hollow trail is a wonderful treasure that my good friend, Joey introduced me to a couple of years ago. It's a fantastic trail for little kids, even toddlers with a little hand holding, because there's no drop-off and the trail is mostly flat. While the whole trail is 4-5 miles, we typically hike to the meadow, which is a little over 1 mile. (See more below.) For the last few

The Little Gym | Orem

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

Palisade Park Splash Pad | Orem City's First Splash Pad is now open!

The first splash pad in Orem is now open! The official ribbon-cutting ceremony was Tuesday. We have been frequenting splash pads this summer, especially with how hot it has been, and this is one of our favorites so far! There are shade structures, rock seats, and and several nozzles that spray and shut off on a repeating program. My 18-month old loved running through the shallow rivers! The splash pad is located in Palisade park- right next to a playground, covered pavilion, and snack shack. According to a city spokesman, the design of the splash pad reflects the surrounding area

Murdock Canal Trail Tour | Adventurin' | Lindon

The Weather is good, school is out and I know we are all looking for fun things to fill our days with! I personally love being outside, especially with my kids! During the summer we all feel better and treat each other better if we go outside, it must be all that vitamin D we are getting! Some of our favorite pastimes are hiking, biking, picnics and parks! Well, I have the perfect suggestion that encompasses all of those things and more! Bonus, its free! In Utah Valley the Murdock Canal Trail runs for 17 miles from Lehi to Orem

The Chocolate | A Dessert Cafe | Grubbin'

I can't resist a good bakery, which is why I wanted to take my kids to the Chocolate Dessert Cafe in Orem. (Check out their West Jordan location too.) I'd visited this place once about five years ago, when a friend of mine invited my family and me to a birthday party for her daughter there. The birthday party was awesome, filled with cupcake decorating for the kids and yummy treats. Since that party, I've been wanting to return to try out some of the other delectable goods offered there. I treated my girls to a little outing a few
