The Leonardo | Field Trippin'

The Leonardo is a favorite in our family, so the kids were thrilled when to be hosted for an evening of Spooky Science last week. Unfortunately we only had 40 minutes to explore because I didn't check their hours before we went. I just saw that there were Spooky Science Experiments at 3:30 and 4:30 on Thursday and assumed that they were open all night, but they close at 5 on weekdays. I was super bummed but it wasn't worth another drive to SLC to come on another night. We decided to make the most of it and ran around

The Soap Factory | Field Trippin'

We really wanted to go down to Utah county and pick berries, but that’s a long drive for us for just berries, so I looked up a few other fun things to do around Provo and decided to make a day of it. One of the coolest places I saw was The Soap Factory. They started out as a small shop where you could make custom, all-natural soaps and have since expanded to include lotion, salt or sugar scrubs, fizzy bath balls, lip balm, gourmet chocolates, trail mix… basically tons of bath and gift items. The inner hippie in me

St. George Children's Museum Part 1 | Southern Utah | Field Trippin'

Steph here! We were here for hours! Good thing we ate first or we would have had to leave and then come back. The museum is two stories. The upstairs is like a small city with a post office, airport, bank and grocery store to name a few. Downstairs has a frozen exhibit, music area, and wheelchairs for the kids to play on and try their hand at b-ball on wheels. After the museum, we played at the Splash Pad which is located right next door! Be sure to check out some of Stephanie's other Museum trips in St. George

St. George Children's Museum | Part 2 | Southern Utah | Field Trippin'

Aiko would like to welcome you to the St. George Children's Museum! I took a bunch of notes about the building but lost them along the way. I do remember it used to be the college building, then an administration building and then vacant for a few years. Now, it's been remodeled for our kids! Every room had a different theme and even the hallways were decked out. Aiko loves to shop for food. Seriously, each room had something so unique. The castle room was pretty crazy. The drawbridge and the dragon. Of course, there was a castle and dress-up

South Davis Recreation Center | Bountiful | Adventurin'

With the start of summer we made a trip down to the South Davis Rec Center to let the kids swim and play in their outdoor splash area. Every time we go to the Bountiful park they see that fun pirate ship play area and ask to go, so we finally obliged and took them to explore. Swimming They loved it! The water around the ship was shallow enough that the toddlers could run around and feel like they were swimming. (I did put ‘floaties’ on my little ones, just in case they ventured too far or slipped, but for
