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

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

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

Black Island Farms | Pumpkin Patch

Black Island Farms is one of our favorite Pumpkin Patches in Northern Utah and we'll tell you why! (See our past post here.) Corn maze, corn pit, pig races, slides, slides, slides, hay bales, train ride, animals, tractor ride, music, lights, oh, and our favorite, you can pick any pumpkin you want on the tractor ride. Even if you can't carry it. They have people for that. You pick it. They cut it, and carry it back to the tailor. The kids LOVED it! Black Island Farms also has a scary corn maze. As we were leaving, the older kids

Poppies and Fireflies in Utah? Oh my!

Guess how we found out about these poppy fields? From you. Angie sent us an e-mail with directions and photos (above.) So of COURSE we had to run up to Mantua to check it out! We love hearing from fellow Utahns. Keep using the hashtag #thesaltproject. Or e-mail! Mantua Poppy Fields I can't tell you how many times we've driven past Mantua and never ever stopped there. We've always coveted the area, but never actually stopped. We know the poppies don't last forever, but it looks like there were a bunch more getting ready to bloom. I think it would

Butler Wash Cliff Dwellings | South of Blanding

After getting some info from the Monticello Visitor Center, I now had a game plan. Part of this day plan included a hike to Butler Wash that let to some amazing Cliff Dwellings. Who even KNEW that Utah has Cliff Dwellings? Not this gal, nor her husband, but we could just be ill informed... This hike is only about 45 minutes away from Monticello. We arrived at the trailhead, ran to the biffy bathrooms, packed up the kids, some water, snacks and we were off! Butler Wash is only a half mile hike one way, so we took our time

Mountain Man Rendezvous at Fort Buenaventura | Easter Weekend

It's one of our most favorite things of the year! We've been going to The Mountain Man Rendezvous for a few years now and I tell you, it's a must. Stephanie and I are still ridiculously infatuated with the Mountain Man Rendezvous. So much that Stephanie dressed her cute family the appropriate clothing. There are bunch of reasons why we love this event. Candy Cannon. I believe that most of the items you see at the Rendezvous have to be handmade. I'm such a sucker for anything handmade. It seems you can almost buy anything, like a bucket for a
