I am a mother to two awesome kids, and have been married to my favorite hubby (okay, my only hubby, but still my favorite!) since October 1999. Our favorite thing to do is get out of the house and find adventures! I am the founder and creator of Enjoy Utah!, a site dedicated to helping families get out of the house and see all that Utah has to offer! I contribute as a blog writer for the Salt Lake Visitors Bureau, and also write CityGuides for SheKnows.com.. I am excited to be a part of Today's Mama! I co-own a DJ Business with my hubby, and also do the online marketing and manage the blog and social media for Gines Auto Service.

The Homestead Scarecrow Festival 2011


The Homestead Resort in Midway starts their annual Scarecrow Festival this weekend. It runs from October 1st through October 31st, and is something you do not want to miss!

scarecrowThere is no admission fee, and you can stop by any time during the day to view the scarecrows. Local businesses and organizations have donated their time and resources to build scarecrows on the front lawn of The Homestead. It’s fun to see the variety of all the different scarecrows. These are not your typical stuffed with straw scarecrows; every year they are more different and unique than the year before.

Our favorite activity is to drive the Alpine Loop and view the Fall leaves. Make sure you stop at Cascade Springs to walk around and stretch your legs, and take a few pictures. From Cascade Springs, follow the road down into Midway and Heber, and finish your day off with The Homestead Scarecrow Festival and lunch/dinner on the deck of The Homestead. The waitress might even give your kids bread to feed the fish!
