We have so many wonderful readers from up in Canada (hi guys!!) so we are always keeping our eyes peeled for brands to share with you that hail from the country that puts out some of the nicest people we know! Toronto based So Young Inc. teamed up with us for today’s post and we were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the items we reviewed! Check them out:
The packs are a beautiful eco-linen, but when you get your hands on them they’re actually coated! This means they wipe clean and can take a real beating, they look brand new after lots of use already! We never thought we’d see the day where we’d let our kids take a linen backpack on an adventure outside, so we are thinking the So Young Inc. team is a bunch of geniuses!Here are some of our favorite designs which come on all three of their packs, the lunch pack, the lunch cooler, and the school sized back pack. We love that you can mix and match or get the whole line for each kid so they know which is theirs. With Summer approaching we don’t put our backpacks away for one second, we love to pack them with snacks and binoculars and sunscreen and take them on our day trips!
We thought it would be fun this time instead of just mentioning adventuring, to actually share some of our favorite quick day-trip adventures from around where (most) of Small Fry is stationed in central Utah! We get so many questions from locals so if this is you, keep reading to hear about some of our favorites!
FAVORITE UTAH COUNTY ADVENTURES – SMALL KIDDO APPROVED (most under an hour!)
SilverLake – a beautiful lake-side walk with a wood boardwalk trail in Salt Lake City. Great for strollers!
The Grotto – A 15-30 minute hike/walk into a waterfall! Perfect for kids and super pretty.
Cascade Springs – a Provo Canyon boardwalk through babbling Spring water!
Donut Falls – another SLC (Big Cottonwood) water fall hike! Gorgeous and the kids love that the waterfall is circular like a donut.
Bridal Veil Falls – easy drive up and park access or you can take the short paved trail. Provo Canyon. Another great stroller hike.
Escalante Trail – Spanish Fork walking hike with amazing views!
Battle Creek Falls – Another waterfall trail in Pleasant Grove, a moderately steep hike in parts but totally doable by even our two year olds last Summer!
Museum of Natural Curiosity, Monte L. Bean Museum (free!), Gateway Discovery Museum, The Leonardo, Museum of Natural History, The Dinosaur Museum all have amazing programs all year round with lots to do an experience! All in Utah or Salt Lake Counties.
Jump On It, Kangaroo Zoo, Lowe’s Extreme Air, Momentum Indoor Climbing (haven’t been but the video tour looks amazing!), Hang Time.
Locals, what would you add to our list for places to head when you want to learn and experience more about this beautiful place we live!
