With the temperatures rising and it feeling more and more like spring we have been dying to get out and explore somewhere new! With one of the warmest weekends so far this year we decided to head south and take these kiddies somewhere they have never been before. Utah has so many hidden gems and monumental places to explore, so there is always somewhere to go and something new to do.
Fluffy Sourdough Orange Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting!
We're still here! Took a slight hiatus from blogging while we welcomed our new sweet babe and adjusted to life with two babies 😉 Even though blogging took a little back burner, we still managed to get out a few times with our kiddies this winter and felt like these little adventures needed a permanent place on our blog. Especially now since winter feels like it is in full force with snow pounding the nation, we wanted to reminisce on warmer (well... kind of warmer ) times!
The countdown is on until this next baby comes and we're still trying to squeeze in a few last adventures while we can! This past weekend we knew we wanted to get out and do something, but didn't know what. So we just packed up our stuff and loaded up the truck and set out on a drive and didn't know where we would end up.
Camping and hiking with toddlers. A lot of people can feel overwhelmed with this idea so they opt not to do it... but if you're prepared and plan your trips out well ahead of time it's so fun to make these special memories with kiddies outdoors and give them new experiences.
We tried to beat the 100 degree weather we've been having in Utah lately and headed to the Uinta Mountains this past weekend. With the higher elevation it made for a nice change to finally have temperatures in the 80's. The Uinta Mountain Range is part of the Rocky Mountains, and is the highest mountain range in the United States that runs east to west (most run north to south).
We're always striving to keep giving this guy new opportunities and experiences, access to nature and the opportunity to run wild, and let his imagination be free.
Ok first things first, I AM NOT A FOOD BLOGGER. So my photos aren't professional, I'm definitely no expert... but I can make sourdough bread. Which is proof that this recipe is a good one and most importantly an easy one if I can get a decent loaf of bread from it! I've had a few requests for the recipe, so I wanted it referenced in one spot that I can send people to grab it. So this isn't an adventure post, so if you don't care just skip over it!
Our little dude thrives when he is outside, so we have been trying to make an effort to get him out exploring more and more! This weekend we went to the mountains to hike, let him run around, get dirty, and play in the water. Hiking these days sure looks a lot different than it used to....now being 7 months pregnant and having a two year old with us... but it's always so fun and good to get out in the fresh mountain air!
