Braces 101

You've never had braces before? You don't know what to expect?

We recorded the whole process from beginning to end for you!


Things we learned:

-It was faster than we expected, in and out in less than an hour. 

-No pain! Breckyn was nervous that it would hurt a little but it didn't at all.

Fly High Trampoline Park | Ogden

We were lucky enough to partner up with Fly High Trampoline Park in Ogden this past weekend! I decided at a very last moment to have my husband's birthday party there. I'll admit, he seemed a little ... embarrassed (?) silly (?) that I booked him a birthday party complete with matching plates, balloons, and friends.

But hello! It's a Birthday Party! He got over the silly feeling once he saw how AWESOME this place was!

Hiking Navajo Trail with Kids in the Winter | Bryce Canyon National Park | Hike the Hoodoos Challenge

After a not so good night sleep (notice the haggard look on everyone's faces) we got off to a late start to hike Navajo Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park. Navajo Trail/Loop is 1.3 miles but we decided to hike to Two Bridges which is .6 miles one way.  I've written about hiking Navajo Trail which can combine with Queens Garden in a Loop trail here, but in the winter, this hike is a "there and back again" instead of a loop.

Hiking Queens Garden | Bryce Canyon National Park | Hike the Hoodoos Challenge

Thursday night I asked the husband if we should just get away for a while. So we did. We ended up in Bryce Canyon National Park. We haven’t been to Bryce Canyon with the whole family before. The last time that I’d been to Bryce I had Aiko & Orion and it was our first solo car ride without dad. See how we hiked with two tiny toddlers here. (Look how tiny they were...2015.)

List of Winter Businesses in Bear Lake Ever wonder what one does during the winter in Bear Lake? While, it's true, most of the favorite stuff to do is in the summer, winter in Bear Lake should not be forgotten. There's something about hunkering down in a cabin, with a fire, gazing out the window at the frozen Bear Lake. Or maybe you are super adventurous and go snowmobiling, snowshoeing or even ice fishing.

Summit Inn Pizza | Garden City

There are only a few places to eat in Garden City in the winter and we are lucky that Summit Inn Pizza was one of them. We had never been but heard that the we should go to try the Doodles. We had no idea what they were but OH MY GOODNESS! They were amazing! Its kind of like garlic bread in the shape of a cinnamon roll filled with cheese. SO GOOD! We ended up getting a second order to go!
