OneClick Services - Affordable carpet cleaning and more

With 5 kids, a dog, and a new kitty, we were in desperate need of having our carpets professionally cleaned. Last week we had the most amazing local company come clean our carpets. OneClick Services not only did a fantastic job with our carpet, but also sanitized our entire house! We all love playing on freshly cleaning carpets! What sets OneClick Services apart from other cleaners is that they are a home service company. In addition to carpet cleaning, they offer services like home sanitizing, pest control, lawn care & house cleaning! And they offer everything is an affordable subscription

Trackline Bike Park - Ogden's NEWEST bike park

My mom sent me a text about this new park on Ogden. There were a couple photos but it didn't even have an address listed. We decided to pack up the bikes today (which is no small miracle in and of itself 5 kids, plus my massive bike doesn't work if we are taking kids to ride the bikes that we pack. So we made the executive decision to leave the littlest Read at home with Papa so we would all fit. We really need to get a bike rack, and a hitch ASAP. It should be noted that while

Porcupine Reservoir Kokanee Salmon Run - The best Spot

Although we have featured the Salmon Run several times here on The Salt Project, this was my families first time going to see them. Taking babies on adventures can be overwhelming. Also fieltrippin' alone without the support of a spouse or friend can feel daunting. And so, the thought of tackling this particular adventure in past years just sounded too overwhleming to me. Well this year was MY YEAR! It's been on my bucketlist for so many years. I was so excited to finally go for a visit. After reading the blog posts here on Salt Project, it looked like

Park City Grubbin'

Finding the best places to eat while on staycation is one of my favorite parts of a trip. We of course have to hit up our favorites, but it's fun to try someplace new as well. Here are our top family friendly picks from this trip. Red Banjo These guys are family owned for 6 generations! How cool is that. They are the oldest restaurant in Park City. They have amazing pizza. We tried the cauliflower crust and loved it! They also have touch free menus which was pretty cool. It was a little rainy, but we couldn't resist sitting

Park City FALL Staycation

Park City in the fall is our absolute favorite. The leaves start changing sooner than they do in the valley and it's a little cooler up in the mountains. We had a lovely stay at the Snow Flower in Park City. It was awesome because they have a kitchen and multiple bedrooms and bathrooms which helps so much when you have a family of 7. It would also be fun to stay with another family. The pool and hot tub were the highlight of our stay. (FYI, Snow Flower reached out with a special discount and they are keeping their

Poison Creek Bike Trail Park City

This is our favorite trail in Park City. We stumbled across it a couple years ago, and now its a must visit every time we are in town. Walking in is great, riding it is better. There are several tunnels with amazing artwork, rope swing, trees covered in shoes, a bridge, a musical park, and miles of adventure along a little stream. The second part of the trail leads to a beautiful Barn and has more awesome murals.

Woodward Park City - BMX Heaven

Ok, I'm going to be totally honest, we aren't sportsy people. There, I said it. I mean, we like to have fun, we own bikes, but my kids just got long boards this year during quarantine. Our skill level is beginner in every sense of the word. So coming to a place like this felt a little overwhelming to me. Also the fact that I have 87 kids (actually 5, feels like 87). And that my kids ages range 2-15. It's a lot to consider when we are doing family activities. Having said all of that, I didn't really know

Poison Creek Bike Trail Park City

We love the Poison Creek Trail in Park City. Its a great bike/board trail. The last couple times we have walked parts of it, but this time around we happened to have some boards in the van so they kids were thrilled to be able to explore farther. The trail ends (or starts if you wish) at the McPolin Farm in Park City. We started at the end of Main Street and followed the trail under several tunnels, then we drove to the farm and found out that the trail connected! The Farm has parking just across the street, go

Silver Lake Trail at Brighton

Silver Lake has been on my list for so long, but we just never get to each year before the snow comes. This year we made it a priority and I'm so glad we did. We went on a Sunday, which I never recommend doing by the way. We usually try to get out during the week to avoid crowds and now I remember why. But, even though it was a weekend and the most incredibly beautiful day, it was still worth it, and the crowds really weren't that bad. We had ages 2-64 and this really was the perfect

Epic PROVO Bucket list

Utah County has been on our bucket list for years! We alway pass by but we have never made it a destination to stay and explore. I'm SO glad we finally made it down to explore. First off, we have to say that Provo exceeded all expectations. The small town charm, creativity, and endless number of places to eat and things to do, it would take weeks to fit it all in. We have compiled a list with the BEST OF THE BEST that Utah County has to offer. Now, remember, we only stayed for a weekend, and you can

Downtown Provo Mural Hunt

This is an awesome family friendly activity in the Downtown Provo area. No skateboards aloud on center street, so we recommending walking to these ones. They are all within about 3 blocks and Wells (2 yrs) had no problem walking to all of them. But we definitely recommend taking a stroller if you littles get tired easily. One time in Provo - Located on Center Street Fish Kiss Bubbles - Located just off center street at Fish Kiss Located on Center Street Zebra wall - Located just south of Lucy's Brazilian Kitchen The best gift is you - Located East

Bridal Veil Falls & River Walk

This is an awesome 15 minute paved trail, perfect for bikes, strollers, and skateboards and ends with a 607-foot-tall double cataract waterfall in the south end of Provo Canyon. If you just want to see Bridal Veil Falls, you have a couple options. You can pull right up and get photos from your vehicle at the look out point. You can park right next to the falls, walk across the bridge and you're there! Or you can start at the first parking lot (our recommendation) and walk 15 minutes along the paved trail that runs along the raging river. Once

5 things to add to your Sundance SUMMER Bucket List

Sundance in the Summer is so beautiful! We have only been here in the fall for the Haunted Lift ride & Zip Line. So it was nice to go up without coats and jackets and really just enjoy the beautiful mountains and scenery. We enjoyed three awesome activities while spending the day at Sundance. All were kid friendly, but would also make for an incredible date idea too. #1 RIDING THE SKI LIFT First up, we took the lift to the tippy top of the mountain. The sun was warm and the breeze was cool, we couldn't have picked a

Best Family Friendly Grub in Downtown Provo

We wanted to stay downtown at the Provo Marriott, just so we could walk everywhere and really get a feel for the city. We were able to walk to all the restaurants, activities, and murals during our stay. It was perfect. Ok, here's a wrap up our all the places we tried and loved. First up, Station 22 Southern comfort food? Yes please! These guys recently changed up their menu. We loved everything we ordered, the chicken was insanely good! We can't recommend it enough. Oh, and the biscuits & watermelon lemonade. Oh man. You can't go to provo without

Rafting the Provo River

Rafting the Provo river has been on our Utah bucket list for years. This year it went on our summer 2020 bucket list so I was thrilled to finally get to check it off! We took a guided rafting tour from High Country Adventure. This was a great option since we had an almost 3 year old. Since the water was so slow we were ok to bring him, but check before you book to see how fast the river is. I got a lot of questions about guided vs self guided. Pro's, if you have littles, or you are

The Wick Lab

Ok, we heard there was a place in town where you can make candles, I thought that sounded fun and knew the kids would enjoy it so we gave The Wick Lab a try. It was so cute inside! Every little detail was perfect. They are owned by the sweetest little family and you can tell how much love they have poured into this little shop. They have 100 scents to smell and choose from. Then you pick your favorites and smell them together to make sure thats what you want. They walk you through the entire process from placing

Rowley's Big Red Barn U-Pick Apples

We have driven by Rowley's Red Barn countless times, always with a promise of stopping one of these times. Our 1st visit was perfect timing because it was opening week for the U-pick apples! We arrived about 10 am on a Saturday and the crowds were very minimal. We timed it just right because the parking lot was full by the time we left. They have over 1000 acres, so although there were quite a few cars in the parking lot, we had an entire row to ourselves for picking and some cute photo ops. One of the owners gave

Lake Powell

Road trippin' ! This year has been quite the contrast from last year. With our 12 staycation project in 2019, plus a girls trip at the beginning of the summer, we had already been on 8 staycations by July, one of which was a 10 day humanitarian trip to Mexico. Fast forward to 2020, we kicked of January with a 10 day road trip up the coast of California. Then quarantine kicked in and all the happenings around the country so we had to cancel our trip to Taiwan in May and weren't planning any trips for the summer. But
