Top 3 Things To Do in Southern Utah County This Weekend

Ah, Labor Day weekend. The signal that lazy days of summer are officially over and the madness of school, homework, and piano lessons is about to begin. Some of you lucky folks are taking one last vacay this weekend, but as for me — in my 37th week of pregnancy–, it will be an at-home sort of holiday. Here are a few of the funnest (and cheapest) things we’re planning for the weekend.

1. Hit the pool at Payson City Aquatic Center. As far as small town pools go, this one is definitely the best. They’ve got a huge area for little ones to play (complete with toddler slides and dumping buckets), a lazy river, and some more grown-up water slides as well. It’s also fairly inexpensive, around $4 per person.

2. Make a splash at the Spanish Fork North Park. This splash pad has been open less than a year and is a huge hit with the kids. In addition to the splash pad, there are tables for picnics, grassy hills for rolling down, and a playground where Spiderman does his training. There are also restrooms and drinking fountains right next to the splash pad, so you won’t have far to run when your little one feels that first blast of cold water and comes running back to you crying, “I have to go potty.”

3. Feed your soul and your belly by picking your own berries at The Raspberry Patch in West Mountain. This is one of the highlights of our year. You head out to the farm, armed with sunscreen and buckets to catch your delicious raspberries. You can spend as long as you want wandering through the rows and finding tiny, bright red berries ready for picking. The best part? They only charge $2.50 per pound on the berries, so it’s a great way to stock up if you plan to make jam, freeze them for smoothies, or bake a pie. Be sure to take cash or check, since they don’t do any credit cards.

    Road Blaster is based on the original arcade game, with simple controls to master.
    Earlier, newspaper numeric puzzles and crosswords helped people
    to scratch their grey cells for hours. However, like everything else,
    online betting is something that is also a game of chance.

  10. Still one of the set back of this website is that the reasonable rate is simply attainable for
    the participants of this site, still do not worry membership is really trouble-free and chargeless.
    The same applies to slips and slip skirts – there’s not much
    you can do to improve or modify them, so they haven’t changed all that much for a hundred years.
    If you are tired of going to your local store and finding that they
    have just sold out the lingerie of your size then you
    can consider online shopping You will not have to face this issue while shopping online.
