Tips for the Perfect Backyard Birthday Bash

Hey y'all! We just hosted a backyard birthday bash for our sweet 4 year old Berdee and thought it would be fun to share a few tips. After 13 years of throwing kid birthday parties, I've found that they have a few common factors. TIP #1 It doesn't have to be fancy. I only spent $12 on decor for this party (thank you dollar store). While decorations are important, they don't have to break the bank. We hung balloons on the strings of lights in our yard and added a couple strings of fringe here and there and called it

Fly High Trampoline Park | Ogden

We were lucky enough to partner up with Fly High Trampoline Park in Ogden this past weekend! I decided at a very last moment to have my husband's birthday party there. I'll admit, he seemed a little ... embarrassed (?) silly (?) that I booked him a birthday party complete with matching plates, balloons, and friends. But hello! It's a Birthday Party! He got over the silly feeling once he saw how AWESOME this place was! Everybody in the Birthday Party gets trampoline socks and a colored wristband and 1.5 hours of jumping time. Plus we got to have our

Great Room Escape | Layton

Every year on their birthdays we give our kids the option to have a big party with their friends or to get a nice gift from us. Almost every year they choose a party and I love it! This year my son was turning 11, which means he is in those awkward tween years where he isn’t quite old enough to just hang out or go out on his own with friends and yet he’s also too old to want to rent out a bounce house and have the neighborhood over for cake and ice cream. ​So we thought through

Epic Light Battle

My 12 year old wanted an Epic Light Battle for his birthday. I have to say, this was the easiest and most epic birthday party I have ever pulled off! I created the invite with the free Studio App. It has graphics, you just add words. I texted the invite to all his friends. Done! Locke was blown away by the cake. It was seriously a work of art. Every detail! Utah's local best kept secret The Little Cake Shop made this incredible BB8 Starwars cake! All I had to do was go pick it up and eat it. It

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

Coupon | Kangaroo Zoo | Field Trippin'

We’ve been loving all this warm summer weather! I mean, we went to a playdate at the park in February! It was amazing and beautiful and just what we all needed. But Utah can be cruel like that. It can give us nice sunny skies and beautiful days earlier than we expected but then, just a couple weeks later, the forecast predicts rain all week. That rain always gets us down just as we were getting our hopes up that we’d be able to spend our days outside! When those rainy days come, we always take a trip to one
