We are so excited to share our 4th Utah Staycation with you! This time we’ve partnered up with Utah’s Bryce Canyon Country and Ruby’s Inn for an AMAZING STAYCATION GIVEAWAY! Go and enter here! Breakfast Having traveled monthly now, we now know one of the MOST important things to have at a hotel is BREAKFAST. It’s EVEN BETTER to have it be a free continental breakfast. CAN I get an AMEN?!? Nothing is worse than havin to deal with kids first thing in the morning and not know where breakfast is coming. Swimming Pool When traveling with families, you know

Red Canyon | 12 Utah Staycations

I’ve been by Red Canyon quite a few times before but have never stopped. This time, I made sure it was on the itinerary. After swimming at the hotel and eating some dinner at the Cowboy Buffet and Steak House we decided to do a quick trip to Red Canyon and go exploring. Red Canyon Visitor Center has very limited hours, so we weren’t able to go inside, but we did explore. It was SO much fun. We followed some trails and then climbed some big boulders. While Bryce Canyon National Park is magical in its own right, Red Canyon

Mossy Cave Trail | Bryce Canyon National Park | 12 Utah Staycations

Last time I visited there wasn’t even a trickle of water…so I’m glad I actually went back on this hike again, to help change my perspective. On our last day, we headed out semi-early to Mossy Cave Trail outside of Bryce National Park, that’s still considered part of Bryce Canyon. This .4 mile roundtrip hike is SUPER easy and you could probably do it in a stroller. In fact, we told a gal to do it in a stroller. The last part has two switchbacks that you might not be able to push the stroller, but I’d would give it

Ruby's Horseback Adventures | 12 Utah Staycations

I packed my cowgirl boots "just in case" we had the opportunity to go horseback riding on this trip. This is something that I always jump at the chance to do. I'm sure I was a cowgirl in a past life. I LOVE horses and just wish I had my own. But alas, I have to save this special opportunity to ride when we go on vacations. But I'm ok with it, it just makes the memory of our trips that much sweeter. This was your typical trail ride, nothing like the racing we did in Mexico, man those Mexican

Queens Garden in Bryce Canyon National Park | 12 Utah Staycations

Queens Garden in Bryce Canyon National Park is a .8 mile roundtrip hike. We’ve written about it here and here in the past. I’ll admit, it’s steep going in, but it. Is. So. Worth. It. It’s the most popular hike in the park and if you’ve hiked it before, you know why. Bryce Canyon National Park is completely breathtaking but unless you make the trek into the canyon, you won’t really experience it. We're super excited to share all about our fourth Utah Staycation! We've partnered up with Garfield County to share all about this area, so be sure to
Ruby's ATV Tours | 12 Utah Staycations harm Tue, 04/23/2019 - 08:23
We're super excited to partner up with Ruby's Inn & Garfield county to feature Ruby's ATV Tours! Ruby's Inn has been in Bryce Canyon for over 100 years, so you better believe Ruby's knows all the cool spots! We had booked an ATV tour at 4 pm with Ruby’s Inn. After hiking Willis Creek, we had some down time to rest and then took our 3, 5, 6, 11, 14-year-olds to go for a ride! We left the babies with Dan (thanks for watching them Dan!) As long as your child fits into a helmet they can go on this

Hiking Navajo Trail with Kids in the Winter | Bryce Canyon National Park | Hike the Hoodoos Challenge

After a not so good night sleep (notice the haggard look on everyone's faces) we got off to a late start to hike Navajo Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park. Navajo Trail/Loop is 1.3 miles but we decided to hike to Two Bridges which is .6 miles one way. I've written about hiking Navajo Trail which can combine with Queens Garden in a Loop trail here, but in the winter, this hike is a "there and back again" instead of a loop. Since we went in January, we knew the trail would be muddy/icy/snow. Luckily, it was going to be

Hiking Queens Garden | Bryce Canyon National Park | Hike the Hoodoos Challenge

Thursday night I asked the husband if we should just get away for a while. So we did. We ended up in Bryce Canyon National Park. We haven’t been to Bryce Canyon with the whole family before. The last time that I’d been to Bryce I had Aiko & Orion and it was our first solo car ride without dad. See how we hiked with two tiny toddlers here. (Look how tiny they were...2015.) This time, it was going to be different, for many reasons. First, I’ve only been to Bryce Canyon when it’s blazing hot, this time we were

Hiking Mossy Cave Trail in the Winter | Bryce Canyon National Park | Hike the Hoodoos Challenge

Mossy Cave is the last hike we took the kids on before heading out. Mossy Cave is more of a Nature Trail. See our other two here and here. I've heard about this hike for a few years from my father in law, but it always seemed out of the way. Past Bryce Canyon posts here. The scenery is breathtaking. I love how the white rocks can be seen here too. It's only .9 miles roundtrip so this is an easy one for the whole family. Mossy Cave Trail is actually OUTSIDE of Bryce Canyon National Park, but they've included
