Salt Lake City Mural Hunt by Scooter | 18 Mural in Salt Lake City |Rendezvous Box | 12 Utah Staycations

So many thanks to Rendezvous for setting up this epic date! We rode around for a couple hours hitting up all sorts of murals in Salt Lake City.

Snowshoeing Mill D North Fork Big Cottonwood Canyon

Rhiannon Here! Although we hiked loads in 2017, 2018 was not nearly as exciting- we had too many of our routines thrown out of whack. So with school out during Winter Break I thought I’d try to make up for lost time and I took my kids up Big Cottonwood Canyon to snow shoe a trail that we have frequently done without the snow, Mill D North. It’s across the road from Donut Falls (see our guest post here.) Round Trip would be anywhere from 4 miles to about 8 miles, it depends on where you are going- Dog Lake

Barnes & Noble Story Time

Did you know that all Barnes & Noble locations offer a free story time every Saturday morning at 11 am? We visited the Murray location to check out their story time today and it was the perfect way to spend our morning! At 11 am a Barnes & Noble employee began reading the story “His Royal Dogness” to the small group of kiddos that were gathered near the cute stage area found in the children’s book section. After the story, they had some markers and activity pages that went along with the book for the kiddos to work on. In
