Meadow Hot Springs steph Tue, 05/03/2022 - 22:47
When 2 photographers wake up at 3am, hit the road by 3:30am, drive 3 hrs south to arrive at 6:30am, just in time to catch the sunrise at Meadow Hot Springs, then jump in the car and drive home... well, that was the plan. We made a slight detour to hit another hot spring and ended up crashing a nudist colony! You can find that story HERE. Not my typical educational post. You can find a Full Hot Springs Guide HERE. Just wanted to share the beautiful moody images we captured. Sunrise. Just two gals, exploring with no kiddos. And
Scratch-off MAP - UTAH COUNTIES steph Mon, 04/11/2022 - 22:03
We have a family goal to visit ALL of the Counties in Utah! And we are obsessed with our County Scratch-off Map! After visiting each new county, we scratch it off and get one step closer to our goal. Can't wait to finish it! Check out our Salt Project Shop. They make a great gift idea too. And, as it hangs on our wall, we are reminded of all the fun memories we have made over the years staycationing all over our home state and visiting so many incredible places. You can start this tradition with your family too! It's
Snowshoeing with kids - SUNDANCE steph Wed, 02/02/2022 - 23:03
Yes, Sundance has some amazing skiing, but did you know they offering snowshoeing too? You can rent gear, even teeny tiny snowshoes that are so cute you will want to have another baby, even if you are done having babies. We took a guided tour from a biologist. He was full of facts and knowledge and shared it along the way. We learned about the history of Sundance, about the animals, the trees, and mountains. We also saw animal tracks from Mose, Rabbits, Bobcats, Elk, Cougars, and Turkeys! It was a beautiful 2 mile loop trail through the forested mountains

Best Grub at SUNDANCE

We started our blog exactly 7 years ago. Since then we have traveled the State of Utah featuring the BEST Utah has to offer. And I feel confident in saying that Sundance takes the cake for best overall food! We played hard and ate our hearts out over the 3 days that we were visiting. Below is our honest review. There was only one dish that I wasn't a fan of, everything else knocked my socks off with flavor & presentation, and overall exceeded my wildest expectations. Not to be dramatic or anything. But I've been wanting to eat at

Things to do with kids at SUNDANCE

Skiing, Check. Eating, Check. Hiking, Check. Snowshoeing, Check. But did you know they have an art studio? We visited as a family a couple years ago and they kids LOVED it so much! The older kids through a pot on the wheel, and the littles worked with clay and made piggy banks, which they still have and use, and love, and talk about all the time... "mom, remember when we made these"! This time we had the littles on the wheel. I wasn't sure if they would be able to do it, but the instructor helped get them started and

Sundance STAYCATION with kids

Our Sundance Staycation guide is LIVE! And because SO many of you messaged me asking for a discount code, they are hooking you up! Scroll to the bottom for special rate & FREE ski passes! We have visited Sundance in the Summer, the Fall, and the Winter. But we have never #staycationed there and truly immersed ourselves in the full Sundance experience, until this week! Y'all! I can't even put into words how much fun we had, but i'll do my best. First up, when you think Sundance, you think skiing! And so, I dusted off my 22 year old
City of Rocks - IDAHO - Roadtrippin' steph Tue, 06/08/2021 - 22:29
Roadtrippin! With our little camper kitten Ginger. We adopted her a few weeks ago and took her camping the second day we got her so she is very used to sitting in the car and living in a camper. Day 1 We made a pit stop at the only gas station at the Sublet Idaho exit on our road trip to City Of Rocks. We stopped for bathrooms but loved the petting zoo, turns out they don't have bathrooms!? A gas station without bathrooms? Thanks for nothing Sublet gas station. (not salt project approved, even with those cute alpaca's, because
Rigby Lake - IDAHO steph Fri, 06/04/2021 - 12:15
Rigby Lake was a blast! This was our first time here and the kids spent the entire time in the water. Except for Wells, he refused to take off his sweatshirt. But he had fun playing at the park. 3 moms, 14 kids, oldest to youngest. I love these kids. The 3 moms that birthed all those kids. We've been friends for over 20 years.
Island Park - IDAHO steph Fri, 06/04/2021 - 12:15
Sorry this post is a year late. oops. We have so much fun in the summer, sometimes we get super behind on blog posts. Island Park has always had a special place in our hearts. The forest, the river, friends, and fun. We stay in my besties cabin when we visit, but there are a ton of air bnbs to rent if you want to visit. You can tube the river, fish, visit Yellowstone (check out our "1 day in Yellowstone with kids" post), and just enjoy the great outdoors. On our way home we missed the exit. There wasn't
Mesa Falls - Idaho steph Fri, 06/04/2021 - 12:10
Mesa Falls is a short drive from Island Park Idaho. The falls are as tall as a 10 story building and totally worth the trip! The Mesa Falls Visitor Center occupies the historic Big Falls Inn, built around 1915 by the Snake River Electric Light and Power Company. With its spectacular setting, the Inn was a popular spot for social gatherings in its past lives. It had its day as a hotel, a cafe, and a dance hall. Later it became a way station on the Yellowstone Highway for ranchers, sportsmen, and tourists. After acquiring the inn from Montana Power
