The Grotto in Hornet Canyon - Farmington steph Sun, 03/07/2021 - 13:13
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

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 steph Thu, 11/12/2020 - 18:18
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 steph Thu, 11/12/2020 - 18:18
*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

Bathroom remodel on a budget - with Miracle Method

Oh this bathroom. When we first moved in, it had a matching blue toilet that complimented the blue tub and sink. Cream 80's vibe linoleum covered the floor, a yellow tinted plexiglass sunlight covered the ceiling, and there was a 1/2 inch thick glob of cracked calking that lined the edge of the tub. Of the 4 bathrooms in our fixer upper, this one grossed me out so bad that I locked the door the day we moved in, and vowed that no one would ever use it until it was remodeled. Flash forwards a few days, with 4 kids
7 Magic Mountain - Las Vegas Nevada steph Sat, 10/24/2020 - 14:37
Our first stop on our girls trip to Tahiti Village in Las Vegas, Nevada was stopping to hike the Crack in St. George. After arriving in Vegas, our next item was visiting the 7 Magic Mountains. The Crack is very narrow, but SO fun to hike. It only takes about 15 minutes to get up and back. Check out a full hiking guide HERE. And no road trip is complete without stopping in Beaver for a photo in the rocking chair. 7 Magic Mountains is such a fun spot in Vegas. Its easy to get to, just follow the road

Tahiti Village - Discount Code

Last year I took my first girls trip in 12 years (without a nursing baby). It was AMAZING! And one of you commented and gave me the best advice. You should take 3 trips each year. 1 with the fam, 1 with your significant other, and 1 with the girls. I thought it was the best advise. As a mom, I put my kids and work first, and always tend to put off "me time". But having a trip to look forward to, especially during a pandemic, is like Christmas! We had this trip planned for October before the craziness

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 steph Mon, 09/28/2020 - 06:54
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
