REVIEW: Monster Jam 2016


Monster Jam is one of our favorite events of the year, and last night did not disappoint! For those of you that have never been to Monster Jam, it consists of a bunch of monster trucks doing jumps, donut spins, and freestyle races, with 4 wheeler and other competitions during the times the monster trucks aren't on the track.

 It's fun to watch my 10 year old cheer for Grave Digger, his all-time favorite monster truck. It's fun to hear him guess what Grave Digger will be doing for the freestyle competition, and how many points he deserved compared to how many he received.

One thing to remember when attending Monster Jam this year is that because these are large trucks, they get very very loud. If you have ear plugs, bring them. If not, you can pick some up at guest services after you arrive,

There are still two more events left while Monster Jam is in town, and that's today at 2pm and 7:30pm at the Vivint Smart Home Arena. Tickets are now on sale and available to purchase online at www.smithstix.com, charge by phone at 800-888-TIXX or visit the arena box office. 

DISCOUNT:

REVIEW: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at The Empress Theatre

All photos courtesy Deanne Jones
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
The Empress Theatre in Magna, UT
Now through January 30th 2016
Purchase tickets HERE
Attending productions at The Empress Theatre has been a favorite activity for our family for the past three years, and we walked away with smiles on our faces, yet again, after seeing the high energy production of "7 Brides for 7 Brothers".

This was my first experience with this story, so I wasn't sure what it was about or if I would even like the story line, and it quickly became on of my top five favorite productions I've seen at The Empress.

The story is set in mid to late 1800s when the "wild west" was just being settled. A handsome stranger named Adam (played by Logan Gifford) comes to town, and all the local town women go gaga for him; he's nothing like the regular men in town that they've known all their lives. Milly (played by Heather Shelley), a local waitress with no family, is beyond thrilled when Adam falls head over heels in love for her at first sight, and after a quick shotgun wedding, he whisks her away to his cabin in the mountains.

Her daydreams of a romantic life with her new husband are soon shattered when she discovers she will not only be living with Adam, but also his six younger, and unruly, brothers who lack the influence of a woman to teach them manners. They, however, are thrilled to have somebody to cook and clean for them.

The town is turned upside down when Milly brings her new family to the town social, and introduces all the brothers to the young ladies in town. What should be a great chance for the brothers to find nice young ladies to "go a courtin'" turns into hilarious escapades of first love, kidnappings and learning to make the best of the situation you are thrown into.

"What better place than Magna to bring a show full of small town charm?," said director Skye Davis. "Sure, on the surface you'll see a show about kidnapping brides. But in the tender moments lies a quiet message of respect - respect for family, for traditions, and for roots. In today's world, everybody could use a little bit more of that in their lives."

This show was beautifully cast, and one of my favorite things about live theater is that, if cast properly, you become and feel what the characters are feeling. My favorite part was during the rendition of "Love Never Goes Away" by Adam, Gideon (played by Jordan Briggs) and Milly. Young Gideon is experiencing love for the first time after meeting sweet Alice (played by Melina Wrathall). Older brother Adam tries to give him advice that all girls are the same, but lovesick Gideon insists that Alice isn't just any other girl. Milly is also wrestling with her feelings towards her new husband, and is hurt that he doesn't seem to reciprocate those feelings.

My husband commented multiple times on what a beautiful voice Milly (Heather Shelley) has, and how emotionally connected she was to her role and her character.

I left this sold-out production with my cheeks hurting from laughing so hard, and my hurt full of the sweet, tender moments that were also experienced. 

"Whether you've come to enjoy a longtime favorite classic musical or whether you're watching this standard for the first time, I hope you enjoy the magic I've always found in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers." - Skye Davis, Director

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is showing at The Empress Theatre in Magna on Fridays and Saturdays now until January 30th, with a family night production on Monday January 26th. 
You can purchase your tickets online or in person at the box office in Magna. All tickets are only $10, which makes this a great family outing or date night! One thing you will want to do is get your tickets quick, because performances are selling quickly for this production.


Enjoy Utah was provided with complimentary tickets to attend and review this production. We were not compensated financially for our review, nor were we required or persuaded to write any specific type of review. The views and opinions are all our own.

REVIEW: Midway Ice Castles 2016


Purchase tickets by clicking HERE
to be directed to the Ice Castles website.

One of our favorite Utah winter activities the last two years has been to walk through the Midway Ice Castles, and this year was even more magical than ever! Creator Brent Christensen has taken his hobby that started as an ice cave for his daughter in their front yard in 2008 and evolved it into an enchanting winter wonderland at Soldier Hollow.

“All of our Ice Castles share the same ingredients and process for construction,” said Christensen. “But what’s so cool is that each castle is unique because of Mother Nature’s role in constantly melting, freezing and reshaping the ice. Even within each location, every day provides a new experience.”

In 2014 we visited the Ice Castles during the day. It was first located at Midway Park, but expanded in 2015 to a larger Ice Castle at Soldier Hollow. Because of the warmer temperatures in 2015, the Ice Castles were melting faster than they were able to build them, so they were only open to the public for a few days, and many missed out on seeing them. We visited at night last year and loved seeing the musical light show. Both experiences were magical and unique in their own way.


This year we decided to visit during the day. It was just as amazing as we had remembered it in years past. We did notice that the ice slide was a lot more organized and put together than last year. It was fun to have the line to the slide go up and around one of the ice castles. 


Frequently Asked Questions:
Below are a list of questions that I have been asked by many of my readers. If you have a question that has not been answered here, you can go to the Ice Castles website and Facebook page, or leave a comment on this post. 

Marcelo Martins and family traveled from
Recife Brazil to visit the ‪Midway Ice Castles!
This was the first time they had ever seen snow! ‪
How long does it take to walk through the Ice Castles? I have been asked this many times in the last week. It completely depends on how much time you want to spend. You could do a quick walk-through and just see it at a glance, or you can spend hours going through each and every tunnel, walkway and area. You are handed a map when you first arrive, so use this to plan out exactly what you want to see. I recommend since you are taking the time to go, see it all!

Are the Ice Castles crowded? Because of how amazing the Ice Castles are, there are many people visiting. New this year is online ticketing, and when you purchase your ticket you designate a half hour window of time that you want to arrive. I love that they are doing this because it then cuts down on the large crowds, allowing more walking room and preventing it from becoming overcrowded. Make sure you purchase your tickets online ahead of time, because they aren't allowing very many standby tickets. 

Is it worth the cost to see the Ice Castles? Absolutely yes!! I am a firm believer in paying somebody what they're worth, and the amount of time it takes to build and maintain the Ice Castles is incredible. You'll notice while you're there that this isn't something they build and then let sit. They are constantly grooming, reshaping, and adding onto the castles. The Ice Castles that you see in January may be a completely different experience than the one you will see at the end of February. I even recommend visiting a few times during the season. 

Any other questions can be answered on the Ice Castles website, or by following the Ice Castles on Facebook and Instagram. Make sure to hashtag all your adventures at the Ice Castles with #IceCastles as well as #EnjoyUtah

The Ice Castles crew are constantly grooming, reshaping, and adding onto the castles.

TIPS when visiting this year's Ice Castles:

Wear a snowsuit! If you are planning on going down the ice slide, jeans aren't very slippery and you will have to push yourself down the slide. I noticed that those who wore snowsuits flew down the slide and had a much more enjoyable time on the slide.
TIP: Wear a snowsuit to go faster on the ice slide!
Wear boots. The ground is groomed but is still snowy and icy, so you'll want to be wearing good warm shoes to get better traction when walking around the Ice Castles.

Bring extra cash. There is a snack shack full of hot chocolate, sugar cookies, cinnamon rolls and other yummy goodies that you are going to want to purchase. They also have a gift shop located at the exit that has all kinds of collectibles to help remind you of your visit to the Ice Castles. Pictures with Elsa and Ana from Frozen are also available for purchase.

Spend the day in Midway! With so much to see and do, make a day of it! You are already at Soldier Hollow seeing the Ice Castles, so you might as well take advantage of sledding and tubing there also! Read our review on Tubing at Soldier Hollow. There are also many beautiful hotels in Midway. Read our review on The Homestead and also The Zermatt Resort.
 
More fun with the Midway Ice Castles:
The Midway Ice Castles are getting national attention, and many musical acts have chosen to film music videos here in the past. Here are a few of our favorites:

Holiday Gift and Party Items At Deseret Industries

Christmas is a week away, and it's getting down to the wire on buying Christmas gifts! I went to Deseret Industries to see what I could find for those white elephant gifts I need to bring to upcoming holiday parties, and actually found a lot more ideas as well!
New Furniture
While most of the items sold at Desert Industries are used items donated by people in the community, the D.I. does have a collection of brand new furniture. The quality selection is sold in good, bettter, and best. They have dining table and chairs, bunk beds, adult size beds and much more.

Games
We love the game Mouse Trap, but the set that we had was missing parts. We recently found Mouse Trap in the game section at Deseret Industries, and with the pieces from the D.I. set we were able to make our set a complete game that we were able to play again. You can also find a lot of old classic games from your childhood, which would make a perfect nostalgic White Elephant gift.
Collectors Items
Deseret Industries gets a lot of collectors items donated that people don't realize the true value of. You can find these items locked in a glass case in the back of the D.I., and is a great place to look for those nostalgic hard to find items. 




Craft Items
Many Christmas and holiday crafts you find on Pinterest call for broken China, or random pieces of assorted mugs. You definitely don't want to use your matching set that you pull out when company comes, so the D.I. is the perfect place to pick up a bunch of these items for super cheap. My sister made my grandma a really cute candle holder made from old mugs a few years ago, and found the pieces she needed to make the craft at Deseret Industries.

White Elephant Gifts
The D.I. is full of all those fun, nostalgic items that make you smile or laugh when you see them. White Elephant gifts are a requirement for many company and family parties, and Deseret Industries is the perfect place to pick something up without spending a ton of money. I came across this Shrinky Dink machine, which was one of my favorite things to do when I was a child, so of course I grabbed it to give away at one of our upcoming parties. 

"Ugly" Christmas Sweaters
Ugly Sweater Parties are all the rage right now, and Deseret Industries has a huge selection of sweaters to choose from. You don't want to spend a ton of money buying a new sweater that you'll only wear once, so head to your closest Deseret Industries and check out their selection. We also participated in an Ugly Sweater 5k Run this year, and the D.I. was our go-to place for buying our sweaters for that as well.

What kind of treasures have YOU found at Deseret Industries while out and about this holiday season?! Tag them with #DIFinds on social media so we can see all of the fun things you are finding while there!

About Deseret Industries (from their website):
When you shop at Deseret Industries you support a job training and placement program. So when you make a purchase at one of the stores, you are not just taking home a hidden treasure but you're allowing others the opportunity to find treasure in their own lives.
Associates gain valuable work experience by working in Deseret Industries facilities and through a variety of training opportunities with local business partners. Individuals can gain retail experience in the stores, trade skills at DI Manufacturing, and other work skills while assisting people worldwide at the Latter-day Saint Humanitarian Center.
