Epic Staycation Destination - OGDEN

Ogden has it all! Art and culture, nature and adventure, all accessible by walking or biking around the city! Here are our top things to add to your Ogden family friendly Bucketlist this summer! We biked around the entire city with kids ages 5 and up and everyone did great! It took us about 20 minutes to get from downtown to the mouth of the canyon. Everything else was within 5 minutes.

Shoe House - Bear Lake Bucketlist

Did you know Bear Lake covers two states! During our epic visit to Casita Turquesa Air BnB in Garden City, we went on a little road trip to the east side of Bear Lake to see the Shoe House. You know the nursery rhyme about the little old woman that lived in a show. Well someone built it! Little kids think its the coolest, and it has a pretty little magical beach also. On your way you have to stop for Utah and Idaho photo ops of course. Loving my SALTY hat from Salty Clothing Co The shoe house was

Dreamy winter getaway at DEER CREEK RANCH HOUSE - Wallsburg, UT

We are always on the search for the most unique experiences and staycation ideas and we have an awesome one to share with you today! We just discovered the sleepy little mountain town of Wallsburg, UT. Have you been? We had such an amazing experience, the kids didn't want to leave. Obviously they didn't want to go home the last day, thats a given. But they didn't want to leave to go do anything else during our stay. And you know, we usually just "sleep" at vacation rentals because we are out exploring non stop, but this little ranch house


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


Oh, Spring City. We visited on a whim last year and fell in love! The people in this community were so loving and welcoming during the pandemic last year. Well, our kids COULD NOT wait to go back this year again. And... the people, you guys, I could cry. They were just the best. The town is quaint, the beautiful Spring Farm air bnb is so charming, we really could just live here. Of course we had to do some of the same stuff we did last year during our visit, but we also added a few new adventures this


Can you believe I own the Salt Project and have never explored Arches! True story. We drove through on our way from Texas to Utah probably 9 years ago, and thats it. We had our dog so we couldn't hike, so we just held our dog and walked out to the Delicate Arch look out (5 minute walk). So boring. I know. Heres the thing. I didn't start this blog because I have been everywhere and was an expert. Quite the opposite actually. I grew up in a home where going to McDonalds was a big deal and I can

Indian Ladder - Moab

Our friends took us to this awesome climbing area in Moab. The front is covered in pictographs. It's called the Indian Ladder, but I don't think it's been around that long. The ladder is made up of smooth logs that have been jammed into the cracks in the rock. All the kids lined up for their turn up. The first ladder is low enough for anyone to climb up, but the next ladder is quite the stretch. I'm guessing its 6ft up. I could reach it on my tippy toes, but didn't have enough upper body strength to do 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
