We love Willow Park Zoo! We had an awesome time (and a huge group) go for a fried chicken picnic, and some animal time. We partnered with Common Ground Outdoor Adventures, and was able to talk all our Jazzy and wheelchair Grandfriends! The weather was perfect, the food was yummy, and the critters were active! Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day! For more information about Willow Park Zoo, visit: http://willowparkzoo.wix.com/home

Cookout at 1st Dam
We were so excited about our first cookout of the season. There was a little drizzle, but we weren’t complaining, especially since there was an 85% chance of rain! The morning was beautiful, and although not completely warm and sunny, warm enough to enjoy all the beauties of nature! Of course, there were a lot of ducks and geese to feed, and we had a good time feeding them healthy fruits and veggies. It was a great day to kick off the warm weather season. We went with our friends from Common Ground that make it possible to transport and accommodate all of our Grandfriends no matter what their abilities. It’s going to be a great Summer, and we can’t wait for all the picnics, parades, canoeing, and day trips!
- If you have never been to 1st Dam, it is at the mouth of Logan Canyon and it is beautiful. There is also, a 2nd & 3rd Dam further up the canyon, each has its own areas for picnicking, fishing, camping, and hiking! We are so blessed to live in an amazing area. Like we always say: “Logan Canyon is our playground!”

We LOVE canoeing! Here are a few pics from our latest “Canoe & Cookout” We took a couple Grandfriends who had never been canoeing in their lives! You really are never too old to try new things! (Also, she is 94 years young)
This area is called Benson Marina and it is on the Bear River
