Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge Education Center | Adventurin'

My 2-year daughter, Tess, loves birds. She is always excited to see any sort of flying or waddling creature. Her favorites go between the chicken and a duck, with always a little love for her mother’s favorite bird, the penguin. After hearing about the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in Brigham City, it moved to the top of our weekend outing list. It emerged to be a great winter day activity, including the Wildlife Education Center, a hike near the Center, and the Refuge Auto Tour. Before we packed up for the day, I checked of the website, and confirmed

Millcreek Canyon in the Winter

Today we've got Lisel, sharing how to ski or snowshoe with her baby. Plus, her baby skis! The first thing my 14-month old does in the morning is run to the door and beg to go “bye bye.” She doesn’t care if it is -30 degrees out and a blizzard, so we get out- a lot. At first, I was nervous this winter about finding activities to keep us busy, but we have found some places that we really love! Millcreek Canyon is one of my favorites! From November to July, they shut down the road 3.8 miles up the

Yurt Camping with kids in Winter!

Everyone meet Becca! She's hear to tell us about Yurts, camping in the winter and cross country skiing with kids! When I tell people that we are going on a yurt trip, I usually get the response, “What’s a yurt?” Then I excitedly tell them, a yurt is like a tent-cabin hybrid and also the key to back-country awesomeness. Yurts actually originate from Mongolia and surrounding countries and are used by nomads. Luckily we do not have to travel quite so far to enjoy the comforts of these round back-country forts. The Bear River Outdoor Recreation Alliance or B.R.O.R.A maintains

Hiking Donut Falls in the Snow | Big Cottonwood Canyon

Welcome Alexandra! She's guest posting on a hike we've all had on our bucket list, but just never seem to get too. She's giving us some winter inspiration to go hiking! It took this California Girl a few years after moving to Utah before I was brave enough to go hiking in the show. I love hiking in the warmer months, but I'm not big into skiing or snowboarding and snowshoeing didn't sound all that fun to me with my toddler on my back (I'm more willing to try it now). A friend I met through Hike it Baby added

Getting Your Kids Out on the Greatest Snow on Earth | Canyons Resort

Utah is known for its fantastic snow, so why not sign up your kids for a ski or snowboard lesson to whet their whistle for those great sports? Utah's canyons are chock full of ski resorts that are not much farther than your own backyard. Last October, I signed up my two older kids for the Epic School Kids Pass for FREE! From the snow.com website:"The Epic SchoolKids Utah Pack is a free program for Utah Kindergarten through 5th graders that provides five days of skiing and riding at Park City. No purchase necessary!

Midway Ice Castles | 5 First Timer Tips

This was our second year visiting the Midway Ice Castles. It's quite the sight to behold. Our kids look forward it our visit each time and talk about it for weeks after. If you are thinking about it, DO IT! You won't regret it! We wanted to share 5 Tips for a visit to the Midway Ice Castles! #1 No Strollers Allowed If you have littles that might get tired, or cold, consider bringing a sled with a rope to drag around, or use a carrier so you can keep your hands free for picture taking and holding hot cocoa

Why you should visit Crystal Hot Springs in the Winter

We've written about Crystal Hot Springs before, a few times in fact. I forgot how much we love coming to this place. I'm not a big swimmer, so it's not like I miss swimming during the winter but I do love a good hot soak, especially when the mineral content is the HIGHEST in the world. Yes, the water is a funky color and there is mineral build up on the sides of the pool but it's because it's full of minerals, that I'm quite convinced heal the body. (As all their signs say.) I'm about 7 months pregnant and

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

Canyon Overlook Trail | Southern Utah

I’ve written about how my husband grew up in Southern Utah, thus creating this problem of finding a hike he hasn’t done in the past. But I’ve finally done it. Rather, the ladies at Zion Ponderosa Resort have done it. When we were checking in, I asked for any insider information on hikes for the East Entrance of Zion. I really wanted to do Observation Point Hike, but between the snow, being pregnant and having two small children, I knew the 7-mile hike was out of the question. Canyon Overlook Trail. This is the hike my husband has never done
