We love GCF’s peaches!

Screen Shot 2016-06-08 at 11.21.47 AMHere’s a look at some of the fun adventures we’ve had with Bucket this summer on her Bucket’s Buddy Adventure Game!

There’s no better way to beat the heat than picking fresh, tasty fruit at Mackintosh Fruit Farm and Great Country Farms! These two stops on the Bucket’s Buddy Game were a great way to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. We loved the “Mackintosh Word Finder” game, that got all of us exploring all the different aspects of a fruit farm– from the insects to the tractor to the melons! We jumped for joy at the HUGE jumping pillow at Great Country Farms and searched for the magic word– the name of their beloved pig!

Bucket at the Family Drive In Tailgate Party!

We celebrated Bucket’s Birthday and the Family Drive In‘s Anniversary with a tailgate party! We had games, carnival food, prizes, and ended the night watching “The Secret Life of Pets” under the stars! It was truly a magical night that all ages enjoyed. The Family Drive In is open every night of the week so stop by to get a one-of-a kind experience. We also caught a lot of films at The Alamo Drafthouse with their KIDS CAMP, where they feature family friendly movies every morning of the summer for $1-3 admission tickets and donate all the proceeds to a local charity! We loved their brand new menu–with tons of tasty teats that will keep you from ever going to a regular movie theater again!

One of our favorite spots is Throx Market Station, where you could grab a tasty lunch and play Bucket’s “Throx Picnic Challenge!” Once you finished, you got the magic word (and maybe an ice cream cone or two). Another fun one was driving down to Harrisonburg, VA and checking out Mulligan’s Golf Center brand new mini-golf course! We hope you and your family had a blast on this exciting, challenging course.

Though the sun has set on summer, there is another adventure soon to come in September with Bucket and her friends!
