5 EPIC WINTER HIKES - Northern Utah

2021 was my year for winter hiking. The only part of hiking that I dislike is getting hot, specifically sweating. Hey, we all have our thing. I like to enjoy nature without getting too hot. And being a ginger, I overheat easily and its very hard to cool down so, due to these health reasons, you won't catch me hiking in the summer mid day. EVER. But, in the winter I found that I can hike when ever I want! And its not as cold as I thought it would be. In fact, I didn't even need a coat! Just

It's 2022, let the Dentist come to you - Dentacor

A few years ago I went to the dentist and they said I needed over 2k worth of work. I was shocked and decided to get a second opinion, and luckily I did because as it turned out, I didn't need any work done! I walked out of the dentist office with a clean bill of oral health and was on my way. I shared my story on social media and was shocked that SO MANY of YOU have had similar experiences. Sadly, dental fraud is real and so many of us fall victim to it each year. When you

The Bar Method - 2 WEEKS FREE

Ok ladies, I have to start off by saying that I have always admired people that do Barre workouts but always felt a bit intimidated by it. I'm not a ballerina, I'm not flexible, and I'm pretty average when it comes to physical activity abilities. So when The Bar Method reached out to invite me to a class I was both thrilled and a little scared. I recruited a couple of girl friends as one does when trying something new (always better to experience it with a friend) and we scheduled a time to leave the kids home with the

Secret Skate Park - OGDEN

I can't tell you how many times I've ridden this bike trail and not seen this skate park. Maybe it's because it's fenced off? Or maybe it was over grown with shrubs. But last week we rode by and there was an opening in the fence, so we decided to go explore. It had just rained and then started raining again while we were there so we didn't stay long but this place was awesome! It looks like an old retention pond turned skate park. Who ever made it put a lot of work into it. There are pipes and


We had some time to kill in Ogden last week so we stopped at this new play ground at a park that I used to frequent as a kid. My grandparents lived off 40th and Jefferson, so I would often venture down to the park with my cousins in the summer. So many fond memories. It was so fun to bring my kids and let them see the old park, and we all played on the new playground and had lunch. Just wanted to share. It's a good one and not very busy.

The Colosseum - Raid Zombie Lasertag - Layton

We LOVE October here at The Salt Project! So many fun things to do this time of year. We were so excited to try something NEW last week. Instead of running from zombies in a corn maze or haunted house, The Colosseum gives you a laser gun to actually defend yourself from zombies the zombies! It's like they dropped you into the movie I Am Legend, or a real life game of Halo! It's a mix of that AND an escape room because you are on a mission and have to follow the clues to win. It is called a

Fort Buenaventura Park

I was interested about the history of the Fort, so I did a little research. "Located on an 84-acre river tract of land near the Weber River, the fort symbolizes a period of western history that was the transition from nomadic ways of the Indian tribes and trappers to the first permanent settlers in the Great Basin. Facilities at the fort include picnic areas, a canoeing pond, the replica fort including three cabins and restrooms". We have been a couple times before. Each year on Easter Weekend they hold a Mountain Man Redezvous. It was one of our kids favorite

Fly High’s Flyghtmares - Spooky trampoline park

One of our family's favorite fall tradition is going to Flyghtmares at Fly High. It's a spooky spin on their favorite trampoline park. The ropes course is turned into a spook alley, the lights are low, fog rolls down the stairs, and there are pumpkins and goblins around every corner. It is definitely kid friendly, not too scary for littles, and you don't have to worry about anyone jumping out to scare you if thats not your thing. It is decorated to the MAX! Every turn has something fun for the kids to play on and explore. And we love

Pump track for kids - Riverdale BMX bike track

It's that time of year! The weather is cooling down so we are headed out on more mid day adventures! Hitting up the Riverdale pump track is one of our favorites. We usually have the place to ourselves mid day and the kids love chasing each other around the trails on their bikes. The other awesome part about this trail is that it is right next to the Ogden River Centennial Trail. This trail is paved and runs along the river for miles in either direction. It is partially shaded in parts. Heading south, there are bigger gaps in the
