FREE Visit to Kennecott Copper Mine in May with Coupon!

Last Saturday, we participated in an event sponsored by Mom It Forward.  We went up to Bingham Canyon and visited the Kennecott Copper Mine.  It was really fun.  I knew that Kennecott had been involved in the Day Break Development in West Jordan and know they give back to the community.  They are also as sustainable as possible. I really like that. I loved seeing and learning about how they achieve that.

The place is fascinating to kids and adults as well - but most of all, educational.  It was a fun family activity!  We were there a couple of hours then went to SoDa Row in Daybreak for a little shopping and ate our packed lunches at a small park in the area.  There are many cool stories to share about our experience at the mine, but I think I'll let you explore the area yourself!  Why spoil it for you?!

This is my son squinting to see through the microscope! LOL!
Please visit them in May for FREE!  Just print the coupon for free admission to Kennecott Copper Mine through 5/31/12. It is normally $5 to visit - and even during this promotion, Kennecott will donate $5 to local charities when you visit!

WOW... did yo know you can see this from space?

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
