Butterfly Biosphere | Thanksgiving Point

The Butterfly Biosphere is the newest venue at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi. It’s 40,000 square feet which houses thousands of butterflies from around the world. In addition to butterflies you can find different species of other creepy crawly friends. My kiddos loved the photo opportunity just past the main entrance which allows you to pose like a bug inside a giant jar.​ The Butterfly biosphere features a Conservatory, a Costa Rica Climber play area and a Discovery Zone. Upon entering the biosphere you’ll find yourself in the Discovery Zone, this area has educational exhibits and is an insectarium where you

4 Reasons We Loved Visting The Tulip Festival | Thanksgiving Point

Every spring it seems like all anyone can talk about is Thanksgiving Point’s Tulip festival. Our neighbors take their grandkids every year and always come back with raving reviews. So when we were invited to go on behalf of the Salt Project this year, we said yes immediately! First thing you need to know about the Tulip Festival is that it is HUGE. We’re talking 280,000 tulips! And, fun fact, they’re all imported directly from Holland! It really is a sight to behold! I won’t spoil the whole event for you, because you really need to just go see it

Luminaria | Thanksgiving Point

I have this thing for Christmas lights. I know many of us do, but I love them with all my heart. Nothing makes me happier that seeing colors on the dark and cold nights of winter. Usually, I'm a get-them-up-the-day-after-Thanksgiving girl. But between being pregnant and moving/'s suddenly on the back burner. We didn't get them up the day after like usual, but we are slowly getting some of our Christmas stuff out to be more festive. I also wanted to start out December right with my little family. We were planning on going to the Ogden Opening with the

Museum of Natural Curiosity | Thanksgiving Point

This is hands down, my kids favorite museum. You can see why below. The hands on, super kid friendly, run crazy and wild museum is really perfect for all ages. And you better believe I get in on the action too. I need one of those elastic jungle gyms in my house! I don't think I have ever laughed so hard. (Check out The Salt Project's past posts.) We went to check out their new exhibit Geometry Playground. We enjoyed working and playing with shapes and seeing how they work together and the kids loved the playground. After exploring inside

Scottish Festival | Thanksgiving Point

My maiden name is Bruce. My kids all have Scottish names. I'm obsessed with bagpipes and kilts. I'm related to King Robert the Bruce. And yet, I'd never been to the Scottish Festival! I heard they were coming and we made a last minute trip to Lehi to check it out! See, Bruce! How cute! Irish deerhound. Baby Ginger in a kilt. Dying! The line for The Scottish Pie Shop was LONG! But we waited because we knew it would be good! And they had Haggis. And we wanted Haggis! It was our first time, so we all passed it

Tulip Festival | Thanksgiving Point | Lehi

This was our family's first time visiting the gardens at Thanksgiving Point. We really had no idea what it would be like or what to expect, so I'll be sharing those things with any of you new comers today. When you arrive you will receive a map of the grounds. Tip #1 read the map. We didn't. And it turns out we missed a lot of cool stuff. So, it looks like we will be headed back again (children cheering in the background)! It was also windy, I lost my hat a few times, I'm pretty sure it's always windy

5 Things we Loved about Breakfast with Santa at Thanksgiving Point

1. The Magical Atmosphere Before we even walked we were able to meet a couple of Santa’s reindeers, “in REAL life” (as my daughter said with big eyes). The magic continued as we walked inside. The lights were turned down low which allowed twinkle lights to shine. Christmas music was softly playing in the background. The magic was most definitely there. My kids were totally impressed by the table decor. Coloring pages and crayons. It was hard to make them leave their coloring to get food. 2. Great Food Breakfast with Santa is set up buffet style. You can only

Thanksgiving Point's Eat Like a Pilgrim

Thanksgiving Point hosted my family for their annual Eat Like a Pilgrim event. I feel like there are a million Christmas themed events but there really aren’t that many events that celebrate Thanksgiving. It was so nice to take a step back from all the Christmas prep and celebrate the spirit of the first Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Point’s Eat Like a Pilgrim event is an actual re-enactment of the first Thanksgiving that took place in 1621 at Plymouth Colony. This re-enactment is the only Thanksgiving re-enactment outside of New England! When we first walked in, we were impressed by the decor
