Limber Pine Trail | 12 Utah Staycations

This is an awesome hike for littles! Which means it was very enjoyable for Harmony and I. Happy kids means happy moms! It's a simple 1.3 mile loop with 13 signs along the way that talk about the area. Educational bonus points for this one. And speaking of educational, when my kids got out of the car I took one look at them and said "y'all look like you're homeschooled"! It's ok, I can say that because we indeed homeschool, we just don't usually "look" like we homeschool. Always best to get a group photo "before" the hike. May 30th

Campfire Grill at Conestoga Ranch | 12 Utah Staycations

Do anyone else's children seem like they are a bottomless pit while camping? We only brought a bag of snacks and I was worried we wouldn't have enough snacks for the few days we were there. Over the course of 3 days, we were able to eat some delicious foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Campfire Grill. Campfire Grill has an amazing menu. Everything we tried was amazing! Chef Vince knows his food! Thanks to Campfire Grill for hosting The Salt Project, it's no small feat to feed our army. How does one even describe their menu? With so

Garden City Pool | 12 Utah Staycations

Garden City has its own public pool. Most of you probably don't know that, since you only go during the warm summer months in Utah. Somehow, The Salt Project only comes to Garden City in the early spring! The kids loved it! There are loads of kids toys/floaties/noodles and some good tunes! We spent a little over an hour here swimming and wearing out the kids! We literally had to drag some of the kids out, but isn't that how it always goes with pools? If you find yourself in Bear Lake and crazy weather, consider visiting the Garden City

Epic Recreation RZR Adventure

My brother-in-law just asked me if Bear Lake is really all the fun. Since I had just barely gotten back, ya know, two days ago, I was like YA! But he and I are similar in the fact that we aren't really water people. Sure, I like to hang out at the beach once in a great while, but I didn't grow up boating or spending much time at the beach, so maybe it's the fact that I don't really know how to enjoy the beach??! We were more of a fishing/camping kind of family. Riding a RZR through the

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
