Things to do in - Island Park, ID

You know those places that are so special to your family, it just feels your heart is going to overflowing? Island park has become one of those places for us. I usually go alone, with all the kids, this year it was alone with most of the kids. We stay with my bestie in her family cabin. We roast s'moritos, ride the 4 wheeler, swing in the trees, ride bikes, sit by the river and just soak in the magic. This year we added kayaking to our list of fun. I'll share where we got on and off below. First

7 things to do with kids in LAVA HOT SPRINGS

We went to Lava for the first time earlier this year HERE. It was snowing and cold. We had no kids, and had a blast! But we knew we had to bring the kids back because we knew they would love it as much as we did. There is definitely more to do in the summer! Here is our list of kid friendly activities to add to your Lava Hot Springs Bucket list. #1 Soak in the natural hot springs Located along the Portneuf river, about 100 ft down river from the big falls. There is a bit of a

Lava Hot Springs Couples Trip - ROAD TRIPPIN'

Road Trippin' to IDAHO for the weekend! This was the perfect winter vacation. Our first time to LAVA HOT SPRINGS was awesome! We went on a couples trip with friends. We soaked, earthed, laughed, sang karaoke, played games, explored the charming downtown area, and stayed in the cutest little Air BnB on trout farm with wild turkeys roaming the grounds. It was the perfect weekend! This is our little airbnb. It was so charming! We had 8 couples, so it was nice to have a place that we could all share with a kitchen and laundry. Did I mention the

7 Magic Mountain - Las Vegas Nevada

Our first stop on our girls trip to Tahiti Village in Las Vegas, Nevada was stopping to hike the Crack in St. George. After arriving in Vegas, our next item was visiting the 7 Magic Mountains. The Crack is very narrow, but SO fun to hike. It only takes about 15 minutes to get up and back. Check out a full hiking guide HERE. And no road trip is complete without stopping in Beaver for a photo in the rocking chair. 7 Magic Mountains is such a fun spot in Vegas. Its easy to get to, just follow the road

Park City Grubbin'

Finding the best places to eat while on staycation is one of my favorite parts of a trip. We of course have to hit up our favorites, but it's fun to try someplace new as well. Here are our top family friendly picks from this trip. Red Banjo These guys are family owned for 6 generations! How cool is that. They are the oldest restaurant in Park City. They have amazing pizza. We tried the cauliflower crust and loved it! They also have touch free menus which was pretty cool. It was a little rainy, but we couldn't resist sitting

Park City FALL Staycation

Park City in the fall is our absolute favorite. The leaves start changing sooner than they do in the valley and it's a little cooler up in the mountains. We had a lovely stay at the Snow Flower in Park City. It was awesome because they have a kitchen and multiple bedrooms and bathrooms which helps so much when you have a family of 7. It would also be fun to stay with another family. The pool and hot tub were the highlight of our stay. (FYI, Snow Flower reached out with a special discount and they are keeping their

Poison Creek Bike Trail Park City

We love the Poison Creek Trail in Park City. Its a great bike/board trail. The last couple times we have walked parts of it, but this time around we happened to have some boards in the van so they kids were thrilled to be able to explore farther. The trail ends (or starts if you wish) at the McPolin Farm in Park City. We started at the end of Main Street and followed the trail under several tunnels, then we drove to the farm and found out that the trail connected! The Farm has parking just across the street, go

Lake Powell

Road trippin' ! This year has been quite the contrast from last year. With our 12 staycation project in 2019, plus a girls trip at the beginning of the summer, we had already been on 8 staycations by July, one of which was a 10 day humanitarian trip to Mexico. Fast forward to 2020, we kicked of January with a 10 day road trip up the coast of California. Then quarantine kicked in and all the happenings around the country so we had to cancel our trip to Taiwan in May and weren't planning any trips for the summer. But

1 Day in Spring City

All this Covid jazz had us ready to skip town and get away for a night. I packed up the kids mid week (husband had to work), and we ran away to Spring City for a little staycation. I had never been to Spring City, but had heard so many good things. There is a natural spring, historic houses, not a single stop light, and some of the kindest people in Utah. We were only there for 24 hrs, but we woke up to find the sweetest gift on our air bnb porch before we left. Fresh farm eggs and
