Mountain Man Rendezvous at Fort Buenaventura | Easter Weekend

It's one of our most favorite things of the year! We've been going to The Mountain Man Rendezvous for a few years now and I tell you, it's a must. Stephanie and I are still ridiculously infatuated with the Mountain Man Rendezvous. So much that Stephanie dressed her cute family the appropriate clothing. There are bunch of reasons why we love this event. Candy Cannon. I believe that most of the items you see at the Rendezvous have to be handmade. I'm such a sucker for anything handmade. It seems you can almost buy anything, like a bucket for a

Utah Children's Theatre | Magic Show | Salt Lake City

Utah Children’s theater was kind enough to host us for their Magic Show. I’m a big fan of places that allow my kids to experience new things. Theater is always a hard one for kids to experience because, let’s be honest, kids are can be disruptive. Utah Children’s theater is such a great solution. I love how they allowed and encouraged the kids to react to the performance. And they even have treats! Treats and drinks are $2 each. Andrew Nadon, the mentalist who performs the show, was great at keeping the kids entertained and laughing. The stage setup is

Utah Children's Theatre | Snow White

My niece recently turned 9 and when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday she told me she wanted to see a play. So I looked into local productions and just happened to find that the Utah Children's Theatre was running Snow White, which happens to be one of her favorite stories. I was so excited to find out that they had enough tickets left to host all the girls in our family for a fun girl's night out with the aunts, cousins, and of course, Grandma. It was such a fun show, they ran one of the

UMFA Free Family Third Saturday

Give your kids a little dose of culture and take them to the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) for their Free Third Saturday event! The UMFA is a real, legit art museum. It’s very quiet and the art shouldn’t be touched. My kids had never been in this sort of environment before. At first I was little nervous. Surely they were going to break something. But we talked about museum etiquette before entering and they did a great job practicing it throughout. It was a new way to teach our kids about manners and respect. And I really loved

Gilgal Sculpture Garden | Adventurin'

Remember how Melinda featured Gilgal Sculpture Garden on Studio5? Brittney is here to tell you a little more, from her adventure. Sometimes the hustle and bustle of a city can be overwhelming. The energy of Salt Lake City is always great but sometimes a quiet little oasis is just what the doctor ordered. If you’re in need of a quiet and calm retreat, let me suggest Gilgal Sculpture Garden. Gilgal Garden is quietly tucked between two houses right in the middle of town. It’s just off 7th East and 500 S in Salt Lake. I had my GPS guide me

Utah Children's Theatre's Haunted Theatre Spooktacular

The ghosts of productions past are coming back to put on a fun and spooky variety show. The Prima Donna, the Opera Star, the Prima Ballerina and an Old Hollywood Starlet are here to "relive" their glory days on the stage. With the help of the living manager, Mr. Arthur Avalon, these misfit ghost create a variety show that will delight children and adults of all ages. This show is so fun for kids, they have the entire theatre decorated for Halloween and everyone from the ushers to the actors are in awesome costumes that help to set the mood

Utah Children's Theatre Camp | Salt Lake City

​ Elle was able to attend drama camp at The Utah Children’s Theatre last week. (Be sure to check our our previous post here.) She is both shy and in love with performing, so this was the perfect opportunity for her. She is always bouncing about singing and dancing around the house, but has the hardest time being in front of people. The actors and actresses at The Theater were so patient and worked to build a friendship with the kids over the course of the week so that by the end performance she was able to look out at

Giveaway | Dartside | Birthday Party | Layton
