Museum of Natural Curiosity at Thanksgiving Point-Lehi Utah

The Museum of Natural Curiosity was a “must see” by my friends who knew Salt Lake City, so when I found out they were participating in the reciprocal program with the Arizona Science Center membership program, I said “Let’s Go”! (check out if they are currently involved here ). Located in Lehi, Utah, about 30…

Hudson Park and Splashpad-Tempe

We love checking out Splashpads, and luckily there was a close one to the Arizona Mills Mall that we wanted to check out while Munchie was in Sea Life Camp. As you drive around Tempe to get to this park, you will find that this area is a good mix of residential homes, college campus…

Surprise Aquatic Center

Having three small kids at the pool is quite exhausting, but now that two of my three are good swimmers, I felt confident to take the plunge at the Surprise Aquatic Center without another adult! The Surprise Aquatic Center is located at 15831 N Bullard Ave, and is one of two pools in the city.…

Camino a Lago Splashpad

As crazy as it may seem, we had been to the Sunrise Mountain Library and Camino A Lago Park so many times, but had never been to the splash pad part of the park. I’ll admit, this splash pad is very basic, but if you are at the library and want to check out the park,…

Wet N Wild Phoenix

I was so excited to get to go with my family to Wet n Wild, that I really wondered if I had to bring my kids! hahah. We actually left Dimples at home (he’s 2 1/2) because we weren’t exactly sure how well he would fare-and my husband and I wanted to have some fun…

Westgate Splash Pad-Glendale

After a few days of being caught in the house, I finally took 2/3rds of my child clan to Westgate for their splash pad. We had gone to Westgate many times, but usually the weather wasn’t quite right for splashing. Actually, the last time we were at Westgate was when I ran the IMS half…

Sunset Park-Sedona

It wouldn’t be a full trip to anywhere without checking out a park. We knew that our kiddos wouldn’t just want to go for a hike at Red Rock State Park, but wanted to give the kids a little more run around time and check out a splash pad as well! We got to drive…
