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 Bird | 12 Utah Staycations

If you are headed to Antelope Island, The Bird is the perfect stop to grab lunch. It's a Syracuse favorite in Davis County. We were excited to get to the island so we ordered a couple of family meals to go. They come with chicken strips or bites and sides so we ordered a little of everything so everyone could share. And a lemon bar to go. So good! You can fill all the sauces you want. And lest we forget, our poor husbands need some caffeine to keep up with us on these staycations. Our picnic was super windy

Floating the Great Salt Lake at Antelope Island | Bridger Bay | 12 Utah Staycations

We're super excited to share Davis County with you! We've partnered up with Play in Davis to giveaway this epic Staycation, so be sure to enter here. We're going to start things off with Utah's most iconic thing; The Great Salt Lake! It's actually been a while since the Salt Project has visited the Great Salt Lake in the summer. Because that summer Utah heat is brutal. Sometimes those biting gnats are so awful, but lucky for us, they apparently are gone for now! (We totally checked before visiting.) First things first, FOOD. We did take-out from The Bird in

Black Island Farms | Pumpkin Patch

Black Island Farms is one of our favorite Pumpkin Patches in Northern Utah and we'll tell you why! (See our past post here.) Corn maze, corn pit, pig races, slides, slides, slides, hay bales, train ride, animals, tractor ride, music, lights, oh, and our favorite, you can pick any pumpkin you want on the tractor ride. Even if you can't carry it. They have people for that. You pick it. They cut it, and carry it back to the tailor. The kids LOVED it! Black Island Farms also has a scary corn maze. As we were leaving, the older kids

ADA Park | Chloe's Sunshine Playground | Iceberg Drive Inn | Adventurin' | Grubbin'

We don't make it so Syracuse very often and this park has been on my list of places to visit for awhile so I thought we could just swing by real quick since we were just down the street. The kids were reluctant, everyone was hungry and it was hot. Just 5 minutes, I tell them as we jump out of the car, half of us without shoes. The entrance to the park is wheelchair/stroller friendly and leads up to the top levels where kids with special needs can easily access the slides. In fact, the entire park is special

Jensen Nature Park | Adventurin'

After a few crazy weeks at The Salt Project, we decided to take it down a bit and go to a good ol' park. The Jensen Nature Park has paved trails, ducks, fishing, shade, rivers, grass...the perfect place to go and relax. Berdee's shorties are from Wee Stitch Co. A little etsy shop run by a sweet momma of two littles. She makes hand made leggings, tops, skirts, you name it. We took the trail around the pond. It wasn't super hot that day, in fact it was pretty windy. The kids brought their bikes and scooters while the mamas

Black Island Farms Pumpkin Patch | Syracuse harm Sun, 10/19/2014 - 21:35
A group (and when I say "group," it was a small gathering of 100 souls) got together to go to the Black Island Farms. Last year I signed up, but put the wrong date in the calendar, so this year, I was not going to miss it for the world. I even brought in some back-up to help. Somehow, out of those 100 or so people, I was one of the very last ones to show, because I was late. I always used to tease my friends that were always late. Now, I'm one of those friends. Luckily, they were
