Have you been to Thunder Junction All Abilites Park in St. George?! It's AMAZING! We went a few years ago (see the post here) but we went again because it was so close to our hotel. This time the kids were a little older and able to do so much more on their own. We really loved that the Splash Pad was still open and the TRAIN WAS OPEN!
Johnson’s Canyon Hike is only open from September 15-March 14th. Since we happened to be in Snow Canyon in November, I knew we had to do this hike. And because I have super awesome listening skills (severe sarcasm here) I thought this whole time I was going to take my kids to a cave. Boy, I was very wrong. Johnson Canyon leads to a beautiful canyon and an arch, so not a cave. HAHA.
Brooks Nature Park was quite the beautiful surprise. I wasn't expecting such a pretty little oasis in the middle of St. George. I was chatting with Sidney from ATV Jeep & Adventure Tours and she mentioned some Fairy Doors ran by #StGRocks on Facebook, so the kids and I made sure to create a few rocks to leave.
We’ve been to Snow Canyon a few times, but I wanted to really spend some quality time there. I asked the ranger what hikes she would suggest to hike with ages 2 and above. We’ve hiked a few of them before, so I’ll link them up.
The Ranger suggested the following hikes for kids 2 and above in Snow Canyon State Park. All the hikes below are round-trip.
After checking into our My Place Hotels, we quickly unloaded and headed on out for a sunset hike. My sister had done an easy hike that led to a turtle shaped rock formation, so you better believe my kids were excited! Turtle Wall is off of the Chuckwalla Trail in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve and is about 1.4 miles one way. This hike is perfect for all ages.
The first thing you'll see is the Chuckwalla Climbing Wall. One day we'll get into climbing again.

The Hunt Family Live Nativity “The Miracle of Christmas" is by far our favorite family tradition. It's outside and cold and SO worth it. And I'm not the only one that thinks so. Every single show is packed. No tickets necessary. Plan on showing up early for the show you plan to see. I
This will be their 40th rendition at the Golden Spike Event Center in Ogden. There are camels, goats, chickens, horses, of course a donkey and pretty much every other farm animal you can imagine. This performance is what Christmas is all about and we look forward to it every year.
We just celebrated our 15th anniversary, so husband and I decided to head to the mountains without kids for a little weekend getaway. It's been over 10 years since our last getaway without kids. And I was "this close" to bringing the kids on this trip, but thanks to some encouragement from friends and some incredible family offering to take all of our kids, we drove off and didn't look back!
