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 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.
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 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
Did you know that Utah's first State Capital was in Fillmore Utah? We were passing through Fillmore and saw a sign for the Statehouse so we decided to stop and check it out. I'm so glad we did! The museum is only $1 for kids $2 for adults. We were on a time crunch so we rushed through it in about 10 minutes, but the attendant said that most people take about an hour to get through the self guided tour. The hall of photographs of local founders was my favorite. So much history in one place. Then each room
Mirror Lake Highway (Highway 150) is one of our family’s favorite day trips. A scenic drive with stops starting in Kamas and ending at Mirror Lake. It can take as short as an hour to get to Mirror Lake from Kamas or as long as you want exploring along the way. If its open, stop at the Kamas Ranger Station at 50 E. Center Street. They usually have some bags made for kids with a frisbee, National Park Service coloring book and pencil. About a mile up the canyon on the left is the Samak Smokehouse and Country Store. Here
Italian Ice. Need I say more? Kilo's is an Italian Ice Shop ran by Kirsten and Angelo Nielson. This place was SO cute! We walked the in and the kids went crazy! They were so excited! We sampled and tested every last flavor before finally choosing. They were all so good. We recommend getting a drench. You can thank us later. And can we talk about the cotton candy? This isn't your average cotton candy, its organic! And they have awesome flavors like peach and lemon and about a dozen more. ***GIVEAWAY*** We are hosting a GIVEAWAY for basically one
Stephanie continues her Road Trippin' Series! We had just arrived in Cedar City after the long drive from up north and we needed to stretch our legs. I saw a road sign for the Homestead and thought I would check it out. There is a small museum that we explored in about 15 minutes, then we went outside and let the kids run crazy! They could have done laundry and played school all day. There are classes availabe on the weekends for spinning and weaving. Sadly, we were there during the week. They also loved mining for gold and and
After exploring the Frontier Homestead, we were starving! We jumped in the car and headed across the street. They had me at the big red roof. It had a small town feel and I was sure the food would be fabulous. I was right! Juicy burger, amazing fries and I couldn't resist the fried mushrooms. They didn't disappoint. Since we were on vacay, I let the kids order chocolate shakes to dip our fries in, but Brads has killer fry sauce, so if you don't like your fries in your shake, they have you covered. Oh and my favorite detail

Roadtrippin' to Southern Utah this weekend?! Make sure to check these guys out everytime you head down south. After hiking around in Iron County all day the kids were famished. Apparently they were getting sick of trail mix and granola bars, so we promised them fresh hot pizza. As parents that needed to eat too, this meant finding a good pizza place. After asking around and getting advice from a few of the local Cedar City folks we found the The Pizza Cart. Having never tasted their food yet, we looked into them and were instantly in love before ever
