We just celebrated our 15th anniversary, so husband and I decided to head to the mountains without kids for a little weekend getaway. It's been over 10 years since our last getaway without kids. And I was "this close" to bringing the kids on this trip, but thanks to some encouragement from friends and some incredible family offering to take all of our kids, we drove off and didn't look back! Ok, I might have mentioned a few times how much the kids would have loved this or that. But in the end, I'm so glad we went away. I'm

Garden City Bucketlist

Did you know that Garden City is actually the city you are in when you visit Bear Lake? Thought we should share that random fact with you. It seems like most of us say going to "Bear Lake." So we've got a Garden City Bucketlist for you! You can check out our past Bear Lake Bucket List here, but here's a few more to add. Conestoga Ranch | Garden City Glamping at it's finest! You can either stay in a super fancy tent (with a full bathroom) or have the true pioneer feel of the Conestoga Wagon circle. Both are

What Makes Conestoga Ranch so Magical

Today, I woke up in my own bed and found myself a little upset that a truck was roaring up the road at 6:15 in the morning. Then, the dog needed to go out and then proceeded to bark for 20 minutes, then baby woke up... Let’s go back to two days ago, when my little family woke up in a wagon at Conestoga Ranch. All was quiet, serene and nearly perfect. Magic. Pure Magic. While Stephanie and her family have stayed at Conestoga Ranch before, this was my first time.My husband and I have been talking extensively about what

List of Winter Businesses in Bear Lake

Ever wonder what one does during the winter in Bear Lake? While, it's true, most of the favorite stuff to do is in the summer, winter in Bear Lake should not be forgotten. There's something about hunkering down in a cabin, with a fire, gazing out the window at the frozen Bear Lake. Or maybe you are super adventurous and go snowmobiling, snowshoeing or even ice fishing. Either way, let it me known, there is more to Bear Lake than just swimming and boating. Below is a list of the businesses that are ACTUALLY open in the winter. (I'm sure

What to do in Vernal with Toddlers

Here is the itenary we planned for our last stay in Vernal. I had a conference to go to most of the days, but the first day this is what we did and then the second is what the Grandmas did with the kids.

Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Naples Vernal

This isn’t sponsored by any means. I was super impressed with the service so I’d thought I’d tell you about it. I just now realized that this hotel is just outside of Vernal, so technically it's in Naples. So, whenever we travel, my husband is usually the one who likes to book the hotels, flights and car stuff. He loves to do it and I’m not about to take over his job. This time though, he wasn’t coming with us, so I had to book everything myself. Now, I know in this digital world it’s easy right? Wrong. Somehow, I

Yurt Camping with kids in Winter!

Everyone meet Becca! She's hear to tell us about Yurts, camping in the winter and cross country skiing with kids! When I tell people that we are going on a yurt trip, I usually get the response, “What’s a yurt?” Then I excitedly tell them, a yurt is like a tent-cabin hybrid and also the key to back-country awesomeness. Yurts actually originate from Mongolia and surrounding countries and are used by nomads. Luckily we do not have to travel quite so far to enjoy the comforts of these round back-country forts.
