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

Natural History Museum of Utah | Vikings Beyond the Legend

I recently was able to visit the new Viking Beyond the Legend exhibit at the Natural History Museum of Utah with my kids. This is an impressive exhibit and full of fascinating history about the people living in Scandinavia between AD 750-1100. This exhibit is immersive and vast, featuring over 400 artifacts! There really is so much beautiful history and information provided through this exhibit that I would recommend everyone experience it for themselves! Here are my top 5 reasons you and your kids should visit, Vikings Beyond the Legend. 1. Over a dozen interactive displays that immerse you into

Utah Territorial Statehouse : Utah's First Capital

Did you know that Utah's first State Capital was in Fillmore Utah? We were passing through Fillmore and saw a sign for the Statehouse so we decided to stop and check it out. I'm so glad we did! The museum is only $1 for kids $2 for adults. We were on a time crunch so we rushed through it in about 10 minutes, but the attendant said that most people take about an hour to get through the self guided tour. The hall of photographs of local founders was my favorite. So much history in one place. Then each room

2$ Tuesdays at Jungle Jim’s Playland

When I first learned about 2$ Tuesdays at Jungle Jim, set aside from being in awe, I was SAD that no one had told me about this before! I have 3 year old twins and a 4 year old. When my husband is working late, evenings can be pretty brutal. However, Jungle Jim’s has saved my sanity on crazy Tuesday nights. Also, adults with children get in FOR FREE. Jungle Jim’s is located in Midvale, super close to the Fort Union Exit off of 215. It has indoor carnival rides, an arcade, and an area to throw birthday parties. It’s

Utah Libraries : A Bad Weather Changer

Your kiddos got you dreading those long cold and wet days cooped up inside? Your local library is the answer! I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I only recently discovered all of the amazing, FREE activities that the library has to offer because as a mama to two little boys, it has been a winter blues game changer. Since it’s close to our home, the Taylorsville Library has quickly become one of our favorite hang out spots. Located at 4870 South 2700 West it is situated next to the Taylorsville Recreation Center (my 3 year old, Liam, literally mentions

Loveland Living Planet Aquarium Family Night

My sidekick (son) and I are trying to do as many things in the Salt Lake area as possible. I am prone to cabin fever and I refuse to succumb to it yet again! There are so many things going on and I want to experience all of them. I had never been to the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium before yesterday, and am happy to report some awesome things going on there. On a regular day the aquarium is open from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Regular admission is $17.95 per adult, $14.95 from ages 13-17, and a child is

Storybrook Play Cafe | Grubbin' & Field Trippin'

We are always on the hunt for a playdate location that is equally child and parent friendly. We were excited when we found out about the Storybrook Play Cafe. It is the first of its kind in Salt Lake. The play cafe offers a safe and clean space designed especially for children 6 months to 6 years old to play while parents catch up, work, or relax on comfy couches tucked all around the play areas. (Be sure to find the Discount at the end!) My husband and I brought our two boys, ages 3 months and 21 months, to

K1 Racing | Date Night

Date night continues! See the first part of our date HERE. I have seen a few racing photos on instagram and was so excited to find out that K1 Speed was here in Salt Lake City (Sandy to be exact). So we added it to our Utah Bucket List and were just waiting for the time to go check it out. This is the perfect double date activity, or group date, the more people the better. You can race each other which is super fun, or if your group was really big, you can watch others in your group race

Dartside in The Layton Hills Mall

I asked my 6 year old what he wanted to do for his birthday party. He didn't even think for two seconds before screaming DartSide! This place was on my kids summer bucket list and fall bucket list. DartSide was so gracious to make a little six year old boys dream come true by hosting us for the ultimate crazy fun birthday party! The new DartSide is NEW and IMPROVED located inside the Layton Hills Mall. It has a party area and tons of seating for smaller groups. There is DartCity for the littles to play in while the older
