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
My kids are really into books. Except for when they aren't. My little Orion (2.5) will let you know if he doesn't like a book, by ripping it to pieces. Honestly, he knows better. It's kind of infuriating. Books are one of my favorite things in the world. I read a lot, I always have. My kids know they don't touch "Mama's Books." So when BookRoo reached out to tell us about their book memberships, I knew my kids (even thought they are young) would be pretty dang excited. We've recently moved and are remodeling the upstairs, so we live
As a professional museum educator and art historian, I love participating in art programs for children. Utah has a handful of top notch museums, not least of which is the Brigham Young University’s Museum of Art (MOA). My toddler, Ezra, and I attended one of the MOA’s most popular family programs this summer called Van Gogh to Play Dough. Van Gogh to Play Dough is an art program for little ones ages 2-4 years and their caregivers. It includes an interactive tour of one of the museum’s exhibitions followed by hands-on art making in the museum’s art studio. To begin
Zeek's has been on my "list" of places to visit for about a year now. We were in Provo last week around lunch time, and they just happened to be right around the corner from where we were in down town Provo, so we went for some grub. Alex and his wife bought this little shop about a year and a half ago. It's named Zeek's after his brother. The building has so much charm! It was a horse stable back in 1910, and then it later became a restaurant. It's changed from Mexican to burgers, and is now Zeek's
We really wanted to go down to Utah county and pick berries, but that’s a long drive for us for just berries, so I looked up a few other fun things to do around Provo and decided to make a day of it. One of the coolest places I saw was The Soap Factory. They started out as a small shop where you could make custom, all-natural soaps and have since expanded to include lotion, salt or sugar scrubs, fizzy bath balls, lip balm, gourmet chocolates, trail mix… basically tons of bath and gift items. The inner hippie in me
I recently heard about Provo's FREE Pioneer Village and knew that it would be one of those great 'learning-without-even-realizing-it, while having so much fun' kind of moments for my kids. Thus, while we were down in Utah County last week we made a quick stop to check out the little log village. (We discovered they have limited hours, so make sure to plan ahead of time!) We were welcomed at the front gates by a couple of volunteers all decked out in authentic pioneer garb. They looked amazing, especially the guy playing the part of the blacksmith. One of the

We're coming to Provo! Looking for suggestions on things to do there with the littles. We were able to go to the Bean Museum (Free) a few weeks ago, Waffle Love (Delish!) and a short hike. It also happened to be President's day and absolutely freezing. Luckily, Waffle Love was there to make us warm again. Tell us all you know. We want to know Provo better.
