earlier this week my friend tayler & i were trying to figure out something fun to do on saturday, something that we don't normally do. we had a pretty good list going & then she suggested the lavender fields & mona pond. i was sold. i've heard of both the lavender fields & mona pond ever since moving to utah...seven years ago... & have always wanted to go.
our first stop was the lavender fields at young living farms. the farm was seriously so cool, it's HUGE with so much going on. multiple stables, a castle-like jousting area, ponds, a ton of flowers, & a lavender labyrinth, as well as a shop where they have all of the essential oils they make, & the most delicious frozen lavender lemonade. it was so much fun. & for 5 $ you can go & pick as much lavender as you can fit in a flower sleeve, which tayler & i were pumped on.
after we finished at the young living farm we went down to mona pond where we met up with a couple other friends to swim around & go off the rope swings. the water was so perfectly warm, but not too warm. it felt so good after getting so incredibly hot at wandering around the fields. we were able to find a little secluded spot on the opposite side of the pond from the rope swing, so we could spread out an area for the little babes to play at while the rest of us took turns swimming across the pond & going off the swing.
i was realllllly nervous to go off the rope swing, i was convinced that i wouldn't be able to let go, but i did! the platform to jump from wasn't even too high either, but once i was on it i was so nervous for some reason, i mean, i have a slight fear of heights but i was maybe only 10 ft. off the ground. but i still went & was really glad i did. if you are ever in the area, or just live in utah in general & haven't gone, you definitely should.
