Car Graveyard Hike harm Mon, 10/07/2019 - 22:22
One of our favorite hikes in the fall is the Car Graveyard Hike in Farmington. We go every fall because it's a little spooky with all the old crashed cars that have fallen off the canyon road above. Check out a video and more photos here. We have never been in the spring, so this year we went in April, as soon as the snow was melted. The gate was closed to the canyon road so we had to park at the bottom and walk a mile up to the trail head. When we got to the second river, the
Girl's Night out at Station Park! harm Wed, 08/21/2019 - 15:25
Stephanie and I LOVE Station Park. It's our go-to shopping place and luckily it's super close! If you haven't shopped at Station Park, you need too! You'll never see so many BEAUTIFUL flowers and beautiful walkways while shopping! We love the outdoor shopping vibe and it's super family-friendly. We've spent many hours at the playground and watching the water fountain show! We are super excited to partner up with Station Park and show you ALL the things we did for a much needed Girl's Night Out! Appetizers at P.F. Chang's P.F. Chang's has just opened up at Station Park, like

Tortilla Union Southwest Grill | 12 Utah Staycations

We've teamed up with Davis County to show off this awesome restaurant located at Station Park in Farmington: Tortilla Union! We tried a few appetizers, like the candied bacon and chips and salsa trio! MMMMmmm love the watermelon salad, especially, when it's so hot outside! The smothered burrito is delicious with just enough kick! Steph's kids are really into ribs right now. Good thing there is plenty for everyone to share! We tried the enchiladas and love them! This place is perfect for some family parties! We saw three other giant parties there too. Stephanie's favorite is the shrimp tacos

Santorini Greek Grill | 12 Utah Staycations

We couldn't think of a better place to kick off our staycation in our hometown of Davis County than Santorini Greek Grill. Located at Station Park in Farmington, they are right in the heart of Davis County. And just happened to by right where we were kicking off our adventure! My kids always order the house Greek yogurt and fruit. I always get the Greek nachos and a salad. This time husband wasn't with us so I just settled on the nachos with lamb. So so good. These are made with potatoes, so they make incredible leftovers too. And that

Indian Princess Burial Hike | 12 Utah Staycations

When we partnered up with Play in Davis, I'll admit, we were a little worried, worried we couldn't do Davis County the justice it deserved! There are so many epic things to do in Davis County and because we live here, we think we've done it all. Wrong. While we have done LOTS of things in Davis County, we've never hiked the Indian Princess Grave before! (thanks to John from Love Letters for sharing this gem with us.) We headed back to a familiar spot for the trailhead of the Indian Princess Grave, the Farmington Pond Parking Lot. We literally

Hyatt Place Farmington Station | 12 Utah Staycations

For our Davis Staycation, we stayed at The Hyatt Place in Farmington Station and it was amazing! Here are a few reasons why! It's fancy. It's fancy, but also kid-friendly, so it's a win-win! Kid-Friendly. There are some hotels that really aren't kid-friendly, but we're happy to report that the Hyatt Place is extremely kid-friendly! Swimming Pool! I'm sure we've all had our kids say "Can't we just swim at the pool." No matter where you are in the world, all the kids want to do is swim right? Delicious Breakfast. While it's not included with your stay, it's totally

Francis Peak | 12 Utah Staycations

What screams Davis County more than Francis Peak? Or better known to the locals as the "Golf Balls!" We were staying at the Hyatt at Farmington Station for our Staycation and you have the perfect view of the Golf Balls. When I first brought up the idea to Stephanie, she was slightly terrified. The drive up is not for the faint of heart. The dirt road is windy and sometimes it's one way. It's actually the reason the Car Graveyard Hike exists. If you can make it all the way to the top, it's all worth the fright. The view

The George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Wildlife Education Center at Farmington Bay | 12 Utah Staycations

How many of you have been to The George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Wildlife Education Center at Farmington Bay? It's a mouthful, but one of our favorite places to visit, especially in the winter months. Thanks to Davis County for teaming up with the Salt Project so we can show off this sweet place! Since we were heading out to Antelope Island, we knew we needed to stop by the newly remodeled center! We actually visited years ago here, before the new building. We love the new center though. There's a few buildings + AC (!!!) and a learning

Caffe Torino & Mamma Mia Pizza

The first time we visited Caffe Torino a couple months ago, we heard they would be having wood fired pizza in the summer and we couldn't wait to go back and try it (and get another crepe & cronut of course). The husband was tired of me talking endlessly about the crepes and cronuts, and Breckyn had just turned 12 up at girls camp that week so the second we got home from camp (and showered), we headed to out for a family lunch to celebrate the Birthday girl! When we arrived, we found out Caffe Torino was celebrating their

Caffé Torino

Lunch dates are few and far between these days but the weather was perfect for lunch so we packed up the kids and headed to THE MOST darling cafe in Farmington, located on the most beautiful tree-lined street. If you've been to Main Street in Farmington then you know what I'm talking about. Caffé Torino is tucked inside a charming antique home built in 1902. You can eat inside or out, but if I ever have a choice and the weather is good I choose to eat alfresco. While this is a classic cafe with coffees, espressos and baked goods
