One thing we like to post about on this blog is facets of our lives that are different from each other’s. And- things that are unique about the places we live. So let me just tell you a little bit about a unique little place we went to this past weekend.
A few weeks ago at work, a customer was telling me about the cute Easter egg hunt they do down in Mona. It is a tiny town here in UT about 35-40 minutes south of Provo. The first thing I ever heard about Mona was the rope swing… apparently there is a great one down there; to this day I have never been. The second thing to know about Mona is that there is a lavender farm there! In late June when the lavender blooms they have an annual Lavender Festival. I haven’t been to that yet either, but I do know that people take amazing pictures during the festival and I can only imagine the smell!!
The third thing to know is that the Easter Eggstravaganza is fantastic! I am so glad we took the recommendation and went. It was only $5 to get in, and every activity except for face painting and concessions was included! Our first stop was the pony ride:
Next up was the Easter egg hunt. We have been to similar “hunts” that last less than 5 minutes and since Bryn is not competitive we only came away with about three eggs (not super fun for her). So I appreciated that here they did a new hunt every half hour, and they had no shortage of eggs! Plus, not every egg was filled with candy, thank goodness! (I am pretty sick of the amount of candy and sugar kids get EVERYWHERE these days) I thought it was so adorable and so well thought out:
Then we went to the bouncy houses:
We saw the real life Easter bunny (NOT a costume like Bryn asked me about):
On to the wagon ride, which, I’ll be honest, was mostly at my insistence, because the horses are absolutely enormous and so beautiful! They are called Percherons. (I know nothing about horses so this was a fun fact.) I was a little obsessed:
After that we went to the little visitor’s center, where they sell lavender everything, including lavender lemonade and lavender ice cream. (Both were delicious.)
Things we didn’t even have time to do were the face painting, the rock climbing wall, and the petting zoo. Honestly, what a steal for $5! I would definitely do this again. Special thanks to my friends AKA Bryn’s second and third moms for accompanying us, as usual.
