City of Rocks - IDAHO - Roadtrippin'

Roadtrippin! With our little camper kitten Ginger. We adopted her a few weeks ago and took her camping the second day we got her so she is very used to sitting in the car and living in a camper. Day 1 We made a pit stop at the only gas station at the Sublet Idaho exit on our road trip to City Of Rocks. We stopped for bathrooms but loved the petting zoo, turns out they don't have bathrooms!? A gas station without bathrooms? Thanks for nothing Sublet gas station. (not salt project approved, even with those cute alpaca's, because

Camping in MOAB - with kids

Camping in Moab with kids... it was AWESOME! The first time I ever came here, was back in college, my best friend and I jumped in my 4runner with a couple sleeping bags and a box of food and off we went. We fell in love instantly. I went back the following year with friends and then got married and started a family and moved out of state and... 20 years later, got invited to go camping with friends. I was so excited to go back, and to take the kids! Here is a list of our favorite family friendly

ARCHES National Park - WITH KIDS - MOAB

Can you believe I own the Salt Project and have never explored Arches! True story. We drove through on our way from Texas to Utah probably 9 years ago, and thats it. We had our dog so we couldn't hike, so we just held our dog and walked out to the Delicate Arch look out (5 minute walk). So boring. I know. Heres the thing. I didn't start this blog because I have been everywhere and was an expert. Quite the opposite actually. I grew up in a home where going to McDonalds was a big deal and I can

Moonflower Hike - MOAB

Right next to the Indian Ladder is the trail head to an awesome little hike. This hike is awesome, short, and has a beautiful pond at the end that kids can play in, but it is also covered with poison ivy, so stay on the trail! Poison ivy can be transferred from pet fur to human skin, so keep your pets leashed or leave them home for this hike. This is the poison ivy. It has three leaves that are pointy. And you can faintly see a reddish stem in the middle of the three leaves. The hike starts at

Fins N' Things - OFF ROADING

Fins N' Things is an off roading trail in Moab. This is a great beginner to moderate trail. We did ok for first timers, but wouldn't have attempted it with our our friends to guide us. There are a few spots that you can pick a easy or hard trail, but for the most part, you go follow the trail and there is no where to turn around and leave, so you gotta commit. We saw dirt bikes, side by sides, and other 4wd vehicles while we were on the trail. We loved this pit stop on the trail. I

Indian Ladder - Moab

Our friends took us to this awesome climbing area in Moab. The front is covered in pictographs. It's called the Indian Ladder, but I don't think it's been around that long. The ladder is made up of smooth logs that have been jammed into the cracks in the rock. All the kids lined up for their turn up. The first ladder is low enough for anyone to climb up, but the next ladder is quite the stretch. I'm guessing its 6ft up. I could reach it on my tippy toes, but didn't have enough upper body strength to do a
COLOSSEUM - Utahs NEWEST Party Spot steph Fri, 05/14/2021 - 14:34
I really tried to prepare early for this birthday (I'm not the best planner). Every Sunday leading up to the big day, I would ask Locke what he wanted to do for his birthday. We would throw around ideas and he would say he was going to think about it. Well, I am SO glad we didn't lock something in early, because Colosseum just opened in Davis County at the Layton Hills Mall. They have some pretty unique activities that the kids had never tried before so it was settled, a week before his 16th birthday we booked a party

Camper Reveal BEFORE & AFTER - Camping 101

Meet Mildred, who my kids lovingly refer to by her rapper name Lil' Mill. She is a 1996 Coleman pop up trailer. She was covered in fur, smelled like a smoke house, and was probably just as ugly back in 1996, but maybe a little cleaner. Y'all requested a breakdown of expenses so here they are. They were asking 3000, we offered 2400 and they shook our hand. Then another car pulled up with a wad of cash in hand hoping to buy. The seller happily told him it was sold and apologized for his hr long drive for nothing

The Grotto in Hornet Canyon - Farmington

I love trying out a new trail, but I also get anxiety about it and find myself very resistant to the idea often times. What if I get lost? What if it's too hard? Well, I have gotten lost (and I did get lost on this hike lol), and I have always been able to do finish, no matter how hard it's been. And when I get lost (which is often), it always makes for a great story after. Well this hike has been on my list for awhile, so when a friend reached out and wanted to try a
Snow Shoeing STEWART FALLS - Winter Edition steph Tue, 03/02/2021 - 12:48
*Please note, this hike falls in an avalanche zone. Always check Utah Avalanche Center before any winter hiking. Driving up Provo Canyon to Sundance is so beautiful. You can see the amazing Bridal Veil Falls to the south, and there is an awesome paved trail to explore there. Snowshoeing has been on my winter bucket list for years now. I always add it half heartedly, knowing that if the opportunity presents itself I'll jump at it. But I'm not going to go seeking it out. Well our friends invited us up to their cabin in Sundance last weekend to go

Lava Hot Springs Couples Trip - ROAD TRIPPIN'

Road Trippin' to IDAHO for the weekend! This was the perfect winter vacation. Our first time to LAVA HOT SPRINGS was awesome! We went on a couples trip with friends. We soaked, earthed, laughed, sang karaoke, played games, explored the charming downtown area, and stayed in the cutest little Air BnB on trout farm with wild turkeys roaming the grounds. It was the perfect weekend! This is our little airbnb. It was so charming! We had 8 couples, so it was nice to have a place that we could all share with a kitchen and laundry. Did I mention the

Ogden River Parkway - Centennial Trail - BEGINING TO END steph Thu, 11/12/2020 - 18:21
Since Covid-19 and quarantine hit us this spring, we have had the best time exploring all the places that we never really could before because we got longboards and bikes! We have always had bikes, but not enough for the whole family to ride at once. Also, they take up so much space that we couldn't fit them in our van and fit all of our kids too. The first week of quarantine my kids ordered longboards on line. They have been the biggest game changer for us. We have been able to explore places that we have never been

The "Y" - BEST HIKING GUIDE

Bucketlist item 2020! I'm a huge bucketlist advocate, I feel like if it doesn't go on my list then it doesn't happen. I also feel like if I something to my list, no matter how random it is, the opportunity often presents itself. Hiking the Y has been on my mental list since I was a kid. But this year it actually made it onto paper. When we visited Utah County for a staycation this summer, it was on my list, but we just couldn't squeeze it in with all the fun stuff there is to do in Provo. A

Fifths Hot Springs - HIKING GUIDE

*NOTE: As of September 2020, this trail is closed indefinitely for public health and safety. Please check here for updates and more information: https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/uwcnf/recarea/?recid=9861 This hike is currently closed due to COVID-19 or a death from what I can see. This trail has been closed most of 2020, from what I can see, so I have been putting off writing/sharing this post basically an entire year. But, I decided to go ahead and post about it before I completely forget all the details of the hike. And y'all can pin it to your hiking Pinterest board, and check it out

Take Out Tuesday with Beehive Meals

We started Take Out Tuesday during quarantine and I think this might be the best Take Out Tuesday yet because I didn't get one meal, I got ten! Beehive Meals not only offers FREE delivery to Weber, Davis, Salt Lake, and Utah counties, but they bring you ten freshly frozen meals all prepped and ready to through in the freezer or the crockpot. Just like that, I have dinner taken care of one day each week through the first of the year! As a busy mom of 5, dinner time can take 1-3 hrs with prep time, cook time, and
