Today we have @ATOMRITCHEY from Instagram! Check out his feed! Family fun time. A phrase with seemingly infinite possibilities. When a plan comes together and all involved end the activity with smiles or in need of a nap. You found a winner. But occasionally, you have the ability and opportunity to rediscover a hidden gem in our great state that you forgot existed. Recently, I had the fortune of doing just that. Crystal hot springs in Honeyville Utah. Exit 372 off I-15. East on hwy 240. Left on hwy 38 and in a few miles, you're there. Originally named Madsen
Welcome Megan from Brassy Apple! When we moved to Utah (almost 5 years ago) we quickly asked neighbors about their favorite kid/family friendly trails. One of those we discovered is Farmington/Lagoon trail (750 North 100 West Farmington, UT). This is a trail we have discovered is so much fun in ALL seasons! Spring and Summer it is green and beautiful. The trail offers the right mix of sun and shade. It is paved so it is perfect for roller blades, skate boards, bikes, scooter, strollers and more. (summer view) (snowy winter view) We even found a fun patch of ice
Hooray for winter making a comeback! Today we've got a few photos from the lovely @taylergolden. Her family loves to adventure up to Silver Lake in Big Cottonwood Canyon. The trail around the lake is just lovely and surround by evergreens, it's one of their favorites! Where is your favorite winter wonderland?
Winter in Utah can be a daunting time with young kids. Kids need exercise and sunshine, but with the gray skies, inversion and cold temperatures, sometimes it is just so hard to get outdoors and enjoy what's in our own backyard. Skiing is something I definitely look forward to teaching my children, but with the fact that I still have somewhat young kids (five and almost three) we may wait a few more years before embarking on skiing. Plus, we want to get out often, and with the expense of skiing, it's nice to have a few more (free!) options
Utah is known for having "The Greatest Snow on Earth"...well it has some pretty spectacular ice to boot. :) The sweet city of Midway is where you'll find the Ice Castles! New ice sculptures are built up annually--giving a new experience each year with bigger and more unique features than the last. There are now a few ice castles in other states, but the first was created here in Utah. We bundled up and explored it with our children last year, twice actually, and loved it. Out in the crisp winter air, we walked through frosted halls and under icy
Utah winters can get a bit dull with the lack of snow. Al actually wrote this post for us a few months ago, but with all this rain and hazey weather, I thought it would be perfect for this weeked. I have lived in Utah for about 20 years (nearly my entire life) and only recently visited Antelope Island. A relatively small island residing in the Salt Lake. Home to roughly 750 Bison, Mule Deer, a variety of birdlife and lots of bugs. (or so I've heard) I drove my boys Crew & Milo there purely to get some fresh
So I have a lot of Utah friends/readers asking me why we chose to live in Logan, Utah. The obvious (and true) answer is that we moved up here so Preston could go to Utah State University (go Aggies!) to study Aerospace Engineering, but it didn't take me long to realize I could spend my entire life in this little city and be completely happy. This is about when I start getting the weird looks. "But it's so.....small...." "They don't even have a Target!" << This actually does make me deeply sad. "What do you do for fun?" YOU GUYS
Cute little Rizden is wondering if you have some Candy Everything for your stockings! Go and check out Candy Everything's booth at Christkindlmarkt today! Information for this German Tradition below.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We at the Salt Project love to support our fellow Utahns. Especially, when they make such adorable items! Susan from Susan Stange Design makes these plaid tunics, which she made for our girls. (She's having a sale this weekend too!) Honestly, look how adorable little Ellis looks. The plaid totally compliments her tiny Scottish self and family! Seriously, I've always wished I had some sewing skills. Now, I don't even need them with Susan around. These tunics are solid too, from the buttons to the perfect stitching, plus, look at those elbow patches

Hello! My name is Caroline Drake and you can find me over at Armelle Blog. I'm a wife mom to three, and we love to adventure as a family. Both my husband and I grew up in Utah, we lived in the Midwest for a while, and returned to Utah eight years ago, and we love where we live! Last month we head down to Southern Utah, and we made a stop at the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park just North of Kanab, Utah. We love to go new places and explore together as a family.
