The Rush Funplex | 12 Utah Staycations

Man. It is HOT outside! This Staycation felt a little different because we did quite a bit inside, but we aren't complaining! Plus, it RAINED again?! This summer sure has been weird. The Rush Funplex is the BIGGEST indoor playground in Utah! You literally could spend HOURS here. We were there for 3 hours and barely scratched the surface! We started out with some good old fashioned bowling. We don't bowl very often and the kid LOVED it. We missed it, but there is galactic bowling at the very opposite end. Especially the little ones. There is something super fun

The George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Wildlife Education Center at Farmington Bay | 12 Utah Staycations

How many of you have been to The George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Wildlife Education Center at Farmington Bay? It's a mouthful, but one of our favorite places to visit, especially in the winter months. Thanks to Davis County for teaming up with the Salt Project so we can show off this sweet place! Since we were heading out to Antelope Island, we knew we needed to stop by the newly remodeled center! We actually visited years ago here, before the new building. We love the new center though. There's a few buildings + AC (!!!) and a learning

The George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Wildlife Education Center at Farmington Bay

This nature center is a favorite. Spring and fall are the best and the trails are all stroller friendly. But they are not paved so make sure you have a good stroller. There are several bridges and walkways through the marsh land. Owl pellets everywhere. We love the new buildings! Especially with the grass on the roof. They have binoculars available to use in the building. You can see a lot of birds from inside but you can see more out on the trails so we recommend taking your own. We have these ones. Super inexpensive but still work great

Fairview Museum of History

Many of you suggested visiting the Museum when we asked what to do. I’m so glad you told us about the Museum. This was probably one of the most eclectic museums I’ve been too. Much of it was historic, pioneer themed, and then some of it was local artists and sculptures. There were so many weird/interesting newspaper articles and photos all over. The kids favorite part was the old telephones. There was even a super old switchboard, telephone booth, and a bunch of fun spin phones. We loved the mix at the Museum, it’s definitely a fun stop if you

Storm Bowling Ball Tour

A few weeks ago we headed to Brigham City to do some exploring, more importantly, we went to Storm Bowling Factory. My friend works there and told me they did tours. You know we love random tours. We booked an appointment with Zach and headed to Brigham. When you walk in you are immediately impressed with the amounts of ALL the bowling balls on display. They even have some vintage bowling ball displays. (Don’t let the kids play with them…we learned that the wrong way.) We couldn’t actually take pictures of the actual process of the bowling ball being made

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

The Little Gym | Orem

I don't know about you, but I find it so difficult getting my kids outside to burn off energy during the late Fall and Winter months! It's dark by 5pm! I mean, I could strap some flashlights to their heads and send them running off outside but that seems like a recipe for disaster! What's a mom to do with a house full of stir crazy kids?! Check out the classes at The Little Gym, that's what! I am so happy with the classes my kids are taking at the Little Gym in Orem, not only are they burning off

True North Axe Throwing | Lehi

Clay and Rich (cousins) opened True North Axe Throwing just a few short weeks ago. We are so glad they did. If you are ever looking for a group activity, gathering, reunion, birthday party, date night, guys night out or even a ladies night out - this is the place to be! Within the hour time slot you sign up for, you are given a quick axe throwing lesson and time to practice before you start a round robin tournament. We even had time at the end to practice the fireman’s axe (which I hit the mark on my first
