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

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

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.

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

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

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
