Evermore Pumpkin Fest – Choose your haunt!

Evermore Park Pumpkin Fest - Pleasant Grove, UT

Date night just got spookier Utah! The husband and I attended a VIP event at Evermore Park Pumpkin Fest on Saturday and were blown away by the haunting details and stunning technology. This is not your average haunted forest and pumpkin festival peeps! Here’s a little sneak peek to what awaits:

Think choose your own adventure meets Halloween haunt meets Victorian time period. Did I scream like a little girl and push  my husband ahead of me in the twists and turns in the mausoleum – oh yes! Did I stop to oogle all the ah-mazing costumes when I was done screaming – that’s another yes!

The Evermore Pumpkin Fest includes an exhilarating jaunt through a haunted cemetery where you can complete one of four different quests (or keep going back to complete all four!) This was my husband’s favorite part. An interactive haunted quest – sign him up! I liked that it was subtly scary at times rather than in your face scary all the time. This totally makes it more spooky to me. All inhabitants of the tavern and cemetery are in character and interact with you. I believe it is the first time I have talked with someone on a haunted excursion before!

Choose your own quest at the Evermore Pumpkin Fest!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Word has it that the always in character residents of the tavern and haunted cemetery are very accommodating to all ages. But if a haunted cemetery isn’t your thing, there is plenty for the little ones to do as well! There are hundreds of jack o lanterns all designed and displayed in a unique fashion from the entrance archway to the giant pumpkin character at the end of a hay bale maze.

Don’t miss the street entertainers while you are checking out the pumpkins! You may even come across a 20 pound blood python or the birds of Evermore which were definitely crowd favorites amongst the kids and adults.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. TONIGHT (Wednesday, October 29th, 2014) is the PERFECT night to go to Evermore Park because not only will you be treated to all of the above, but there will also be a music festival starring Mindy Gledhill, Fictionist, and more! Get tickets online in advance for $5 off. Steal of a deal for a haunted excursion and a concert!

My husband and I had a blast at  Evermore Pumpkin Fest and definitely think it is the new haunted place to be in Utah. If you are looking for a fun activity to do with family or friends this week for Halloween, look no further. From college students to the littles, it’s fun for all ages.

One of my favorite parts of our VIP experience at the Pumpkin Fest was hearing from owner and visionary of Evermore,  Ken Bretschneider. While the grounds of Evermore hold the Pumpkin Fest this year, tentative plans are underway to begin construction on a multi million dollar adventure theme park that is both interactive and immersive. John and I marveled at the miniature set of the park that included a  graveyard and hedgemaze, a high-tech hotel, a water park nestled into a cliffside castle, a Victorian village straight from Dickens, a church complete with catacombs to explore underneath, a derelict pirate ship and hideaway cove and much, much more. Be sure to follow Evermore Park on facebook to keep up to date!

To say we are excited for it is an understatement! But for now, my husband is ready to go back and choose his next quest at the Evermore Nightshade Cemetery! Head on over tonight and catch Mindy Gledhill! Remember, tickets are $5 off if you preorder online. The Pumpkin Fest runs through November 1st and is located off exit 275 in Pleasant Grove.

I am Brave and Beautiful Update!

I am Brave and Beautiful Movement

A few weeks ago, I shared a little bit of my heart for the I am Brave and Beautiful Movement. Taking my makeup off and joining in with 100s of women to share our definition of beauty felt amazing. Have you read the stories of these amazing women? If you haven’t yet, grab a tissue and read them all here.

I am a Dancing With the Stars fan so I was thrilled when Bethany Mota and Derek Hough danced to Colbie Caillat’s Try on a recent episode. Colbie sang and played live – it was amazing! Beautiful and powerful – happily admitting that I cried. The visual of pushing away all of the labels and expressing love for ourselves touched my heart. You’ve got to watch it!

I am so happy that Bethany addressed bullying. It’s an issue that truly breaks my heart. At the beginning of the school year, I found out that my second grader was being pushed by older boys at school. I should have guessed something was wrong when my normally can’t-wait-to-get-to-school little girl was begging to stay home. We had a long talk about bullies and we talked with her teacher. There haven’t been any problems since then and my mother heart is praying that we don’t see any more for a long, long time.

That is why the #IamBraveandBeautiful movement is so important and so close to my heart.  I want my daughter to always feel brave and beautiful. I want her to be the kind of person who lifts and inspire others rather than tearing them down. I am trying to be that kind of person myself.

Joining in on this project has been a great way to see the good in many of the bloggers I work with. They are not just pretty faces. They are women with hopes and dreams, families and friends. Just like all of us! I am so grateful to them and each of you for sharing the good in the world!

Have you seen the Colbie Caillat music video Try? What did you think?

Are you a Dancing with the Stars fan? Who do you predict to win?

How do you teach your children about their individual worth?

The Legacy Collection – a Review of Disney’s Latest CD Releases

“I received a set of the Legacy Collection CD’s as a member of the Entertainment New Media Network. No further compensation was received and all opinions are my own. This post may also contain affiliate links.”

Lion King - The Legacy Collection

 

It is no secret that we are Disney fans. From the theme parks, to the movies, to the merchandise – this family loves it all! Ever since our Walt Disney World vacation in May, my three year old has been asking, “When we going back to Disney Junior Land?”

Our next Disney vacation is still in the works and TBA so we’ve had to content ourselves with listening to our favorite Disney CDs. We were so excited to review Walt Disney Records’ newly created line of collectible CDs, the Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection.

The Legacy Collection features the beloved original soundtracks from each of the movies, plus valuable documentary content that tells the story behind the music. Each album features newly created artwork from Lorelay Bove, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios (“Tangled,” “Winnie the Pooh,” “Wreck-It Ralph”). The artwork is beautiful and my daughter loved that each CD has a book-like appearance.

Mary Poppins - The Legacy Collection

As we listened to the CDs on a recent road trip, the music took me back to my childhood and the many subsequent cherished Disney memories. Each member of my family has a clear favorite song from the three CDs we reviewed. Here are some of them:

My three year old’s favorite is Just Can’t Wait to be King from The Lion King: The Legacy Collection. I must admit that it gets me singing along, too.

My five year old has a surprise favorite – Scar’s Be Prepared! We’ve listened to that song on repeat the past few days. It’s almost a given that my son is going to shout out, “#8 please mom!” the second we get in the car. Sung by Jeremy Irons, Cheech Marin, Jim Cummings (who took over after Irons’s voice gave out), and Whoopi Goldberg, this song’s lyrics are even wittier than I remember as a child. Disney’s song writers are incredible at writing extra meaning into the songs – I loved the double meaning for pride in this song. So smart!

Listening to the The Lion King also gets me excited for seeing the Festival of the Lion King in the brand new Harambe Theater. It was being remodeled during our visit to the Wild Animal Kingdom so my kids haven’t had a chance to see it yet. Definitely on our Disney bucket list!

Bippity Boppity Boutique

It was definitely not a surprise that my daughter loved the Sleeping Beauty sound track best. She said it reminded her of her time at the Bippity Boppity Boutique. Sleeping Beauty holds a special place in my heart, too, and reminded me of all the classic Disney movies and rides in Fantasy Land. The orchestral scores are beautiful and  I dare you not to slip into a waltz during Once Upon a Dream.

For myself, I have a hard time choosing between Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins with Dick van Dyke and Circle of Life. So many good iconic songs. If you want to get a sneak peek into the making of the Circle of Life scene and music – you have got to check out this video from Disney Insider!

So far only The Lion King, Sleeping Beauty, and Mary Poppins have been released in The Legacy Collection. The Little Mermaid will be released on 11/17/14 with the rest of The Legacy Collection 2015 as follows:

Fantasia 75th 1/3/15

Pinocchio 75th 2/3/15

Toy Story 20th 3/17/15

Disneyland 60th 4/7/15

Lady and the Tramp 60th 5/12/15

Pocahontas 20th 6/23/15

Aristocats 45th 8/14/15

Cinderella 65th 8/14/15

So many fun CDs to look forward to! These will make great stocking stuffers for our favorite Disney fan! I always love having Disney CDs for our road trips and our kids beg to listen to them. The Legacy Collection is available on Amazon.com and the Disney Store, of course.

Now for the exciting part, Walt Disney Records is generously giving away all three CDs to one of my lucky fans! Enter in the rafflecopter below:

Meet These Mormons

Pinable Image

We belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints otherwise known as “The Mormons”. We are proud of this part of who we are! We are excited to team up with over 65+ of us strong… to extend an invitation to see a film. A film entitled “Meet The Mormons”.

This film is not meant to be an “in your face” – you must join our church film. It is simply designed and produced to uplift and inspire you through six stories of those of our faith who have followed promptings to follow Christ more fully in their lives. We hope you take the opportunity to enjoy this film. We hope your hearts are made light as you feel the goodness that comes from following Jesus Christ, our Savior. All proceeds from the film will be donated to The American Red Cross. So not only will you be uplifted and inspired, your money will be going to an amazing charity!!

We also would like to take a moment and share our personal testimonies, stories of our own personal conversions, and our own stories of how following Jesus Christ has changed our lives. The light of the gospel of Jesus Christ offers a joy and hope that only following him can provide. We hope as you click through and read our stories and testimonies of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, you will feel uplifted and encouraged. We are by you! We love connecting with our readers, that is why many of us do what we do! Please be kind and considerate in your comments. It takes great bravery for us to open our hearts and our mouths to share with you such a tender and personal part of who we are. We share because we feel strongly the need to share the peace and the hope that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

So here is my story.

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Growing up sitting in the second row of the chapel each week, I never doubted that this church was true. I don’t consider it blind faith, it is faith reinforced by many experiences in my life. I never felt forced to believe, simply encouraged to read the scriptures and ask God for myself. This faith sustained me during harder times in my life. When I miscarried my first baby and my parents separated, I did a lot of soul searching and found comfort by attending the temple. The gospel of Jesus Christ has truly shaped my life experiences.

As a young adult, I attended BYU-Idaho and felt myself come out of my shell and discover the many opportunities available to be to learn and serve. Upon graduating from college, I completed a six-month internship with the Church magazines in Salt Lake City. As an intern for the international magazine, the Liahona, my eyes were opened to the world-wide church.

Each week I spoke with church members from all over the world via telephone and e-mail. I cried with the Saints in Apia Samoa when their temple was damaged by fire. I will never forget the pictures of the members who tried to help put it out.

And then there was the story of an elderly gentleman whose home had been rebuilt by the missionaries in the area. They sent a before and after picture of the home. The first picture I looked at was a simple, sturdy, small home, but made of materials not typical for the United States. In my head I figured that it was the before picture.

I flipped to the next picture to discover a dilapidated lean-to made of even less desirable materials – the true before picture. The biggest difference in the two pictures was the smile of the man. It warmed my heart and I promised myself I would be more grateful for what I had.

#meetthemormons

During my internship and time at BYU-Idaho, I had the privilege to speak with and work with many church leaders on occasion. I’ll never forgot covering the dedication of the Spori Building at BYU-Idaho. President Thomas S. Monson spoke, but then needed to quickly exit the building to get to another engagement on campus. I was quite surprised and thrilled when President Monson stopped to talk with me as he walked down the aisle. In true President Monson fashion, he quoted a song and wished me well in my endeavors.

I have felt the same encouragement from many church leaders. One day during my internship, I was slightly turned around while looking for the General Young Women’s Offices. A nearby woman noticed the confusion on my face and approached me asking if there was anything she could do to help. It was the General Relief Society President!

These two experiences have impressed upon me that this church cares about each of us as individuals. If someone as busy as a general authority has time to encourage and guide the one, then so shall I! And this is why I am so excited to see Meet the Mormons this weekend. I cannot wait to be inspired by their stories. This week I have been listening to a song from the movie on repeat. The song titled “Glorious” and sung by American Idol contestant David Archuleta expresses perfectly the worth of the individual. Each one of us is glorious!

Please take a moment to meet some of my blogger friends who are also Mormons!

Five Reasons You Need Corn Hole at Your Next Party

 

Five Reasons to have Corn Hole at Your Next Party!

We’ve been going to Cherry Hill for over 30 years for our annual family reunion. Every year, I try to think of new, fun ways to keep the kiddos entertained. This year we brought Corn Hole and customized BYU bean bags (which my husband absolutely loved). Imagine my surprise when it kept EVERYONE entertained. From the grandpas to the toddlers – everyone loved Corn Hole. The kids spent hours with it and we even had relatives from neighboring camp sites come over to play.

So here are five reasons why you have go to get one of these for your next party!

Corn Hole for Kids

1. It’s easy. The youngest kids are a-ok with just tossing the bean bags into the hole and the older kids and adults can play more competitively if they like. The concept is simple – you play until a player or team scores 21 points, with a bean bag landing on-board being worth 1 point and a bean bag entering the “cornhole” scoring 3 points. The boards are placed 27 feet apart. After those technicalities – it is all fun!

Corn Hole for Kids2. It’s for all ages. We had ALL AGES playing Corn Hole over the weekend. The toddlers thought it was a hit and the grandpas even played a round or two. There was even a tournament with the young adults.

Corn Hole - a fun, family game for all ages

 

3. It’s customizable. I selected the BYU bean bags for my husband – it was such a fun surprise! And it’s hard to surprise my husband! They have many more sports teams available as well as a variety of colors and patterns.  (Okay ladies, think Christmas presents for your husbands!) AllCornHole.com even has a line of wedding bean bags. How fun would that be for kids at a wedding?

Customizable Corn Hole Set

 

4. It’s perfect in a variety of situations. Like I mentioned above, Corn Hole is an easy crowd-pleaser for a multitude of events. Need something to occupy children at wedding – get the chevron or burlap chic bags and dress up the board! Having a tail gating party or watching the big game with friends – get it themed to your favorite sports team! Need an easy activity for your children’s school carnival – AllCornHole.com has got you covered! It kept all of us entertained at our camping family reunion.

5. It’s reusable. You can use your corn hole for all of the above listed situations. The boards are sturdy and the bags have a one year warranty. Believe me – they are durable! The bags survived our group of toddlers and a dusty camp site.

Our weekend experience made us a fan of Corn Hole. I liked that it was a game that all ages could play. Too often activities are only for certain ages. This brought our family together and we definitely had a great time!

Have you played Corn Hole?

What are your favorite games to play together as a family?

Corn Hole provided me with customized bags for the purpose of this review. All the fun we had and my opinions are my own!

  • Pin the two links before yours! If EVERYONE pins, then everyone will get more Pinterest love.
