Free (Or Cheap!) Weekend Family Fun Along The Wasatch Front
Warmer weather means so many amazing things crop up this weekend! The Todd and I are definitely hitting the Holi Festival of Colors in Spanish Fork – the Krishna Temple there is stunningly beautiful, and it’s a wonderful way to experience the food, dance, music and culture of these incredible people.
