Dairy Keen | Grubbin'

We only make in to Midway and Heber City a couple times a year and one of our stops is always Dairy Keen. This family owned Utah business has THE BEST burgers and shakes in the area. The place is always busy and the service is fast. We have never had to wait more than a few minutes for our food. After you place your order you can go find a seat and they buzz you when your food is ready. They also have one of those fancy drink machines so the possibilities are endless for drink mixes. And the

Zermatt Resort in the Winter

Winter in Midway and Heber City is pretty magical! Right before Christmas we headed to The Zermatt Resort for a little staycation. We visited the Elfz Academy. This was Zermatt's first year hosting the academy. Each kid received a map with different things to go check off. They had to learn how to wrap presents and make toys, build a snowman, and they got to ride on Utah’s ONLY Christmas themed flight simulator ride to The North Pole. We went to snow school and we even got to take a ride on the Elf Express. All of Santas helpers were

Giveaway | Dairy Keen | Grubbin'

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but my husband and I really like to use Yelp when trying to find food places. I honestly feel like if you are going to travel, you’ve got to try the local places to truly feel like you are “there.” We’d just finished at the Heber Creeper and it was past dinner time for us. We eat at like 5:05…and it was 6:00. We were all a little hangry. So when we drove up to Dairy Keen, we were like…are all those cars parked for here? Yup. They were. It was crazyyyy busy. It’s

Heber Valley Railroad | Pumpkin Train | Field Trippin'

I’d only heard about the Heber Creeper in the last few years, so I’ve been excited to take my babies to a good old train! My grandpa was a big train man, he even owned a model train shop in Iowa, so I have a deep love for trains. Aiko and Orion’s favorite book is all about trains, so I thought they’d be tickled to be on a real one. Man, I was not expecting something so picturesque. It’s quite the place. I’m a big Harry Potter fan and so of course I was feeling all Potter like. From the

Zermatt Resort | Staycations | Day 2

See our first impression of the Zermatt Resort here. How do your kids fair at sleeping while traveling? Sometimes mine are really good and just falling asleep and then this time not so much. While they were screaming for a good 30 minutes, I sat in their room, blasting Frozen Soundtrack and planning our next day in Midway. This is what I came up with: Breakfast at The Bakery at the Zermatt Feed the Goats/Walk the Resort Grounds/Ride the Carousel at the Zermatt Find Fairy Forest in the Uintah National Forest here.

Fairy Land in Uinta National Forest

I like to think of myself of a Tomboy, that really likes accessories and clothing. Like bugs, I like bugs and sticks. That being said, I, for some reason, loathe princess stuff. Always have, probably always will. I just don’t dig the whole princess scene. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be the first to turn on a cartoon and basically any old Disney movie, but I’m very careful with what I let Aiko watch. I try to keep it neutral, especially now that Orion is getting older. I don’t always have control what she watched at the Gym Daycare. I

Heber Valley Artisan Cheese Farm | Field Trippin'

We stopped by Heber Valley Cheese for a tour while we were in Midway for the Soldier Hollow Classic and Swiss Days. After we sampled about 94 types of cheese and ice cream, they so kindly took us on a tour of the Dairy Farm next door. They are just starting to give tours of the farm to the public and we were the first to try is out. Furture tours might not be exactly like ours as they work out the bumps and streamline it. But we wanted to share our experience. First stop. BABY COW HEAVEN! I mean

Heber Valley Railroad | Heber Creeper | Field Trippin'

Heber Valley is absolutely charming! After spending the day watching the Sheep Dogs and take a tour at Heber Valley Cheese, we headed to the other side of town to check out the Heber Creeper. It was fun for the kids to see the old trains. My great grandpa worked on these trains! And my Grandma Milly worked at Union Station in Ogden years ago. So I told stories about their connection to the trains, and they walked around and explored. On the main street (coming from Midway toward Heber), before you turn off for the Heber Creeper, there is

Heber Valley Artisan Cheese | Field Trippin'

We stopped by Heber Valley Cheese while we were in Midway for the Soldier Hollow Classic and Swiss Days. Every year during Swiss Days, Heber Valley Cheese opens the back room for cheese sampling. Grant and his family own and opperate Heber Valley Cheese as well as the the dairy farm next door. It has been in the family for generations. Even Grandma was there! Making swiss treats for everyone to sample. When I saw Grandma I knew this was the real deal. You see, I was raised in a family business. And on any given day, there are 3
