The temperatures are warmer, the pools are open, and another school year is finished. Happy First Day of Summer! Most of us have a bucket list of some type. Whether it’s a list we’ve written down or something we recall from memory, it’s something personal to everyone.  With summer in full swing, I thought it’d be fun to create a bucket list of summer experiences to do with my staff and preschooler. We love exploring new places in the Greater Fredericksburg area so this will be a great way to support local businesses and recreational areas while having fun! 

  1. Visit a battlefield (Fredericksburg Battlefield)
  2. Go to Curtis Park
  3. Throw the lacrosse ball around
  4. Sign up for a new race
  5. Visit a new brewery in FXBG or try the new brew tour! (visited Strangeways)
  6. Go to a Hurkamp Park concert
  7. Kayak the Rappahannock River
  8. Take a local Yoga class
  9. See a riverside play
  10. Discover the Skyzone toddler time
  11. Visit the Kings Dominion kiddie park (Twice!)
  12. Visit a farm
  13. Visit clients and employees with cold treats
  14. Visit the new Jeff Rouse Swim Center in Stafford
  15. Go tent camping (high hopes)
  16. Spend a day shopping in downtown FXBG 
  17. Eat at a local restaurant (lunched at Sammy T’s)
  18. Backyard slip and slide (backyard fun with the kiddos)

This might seem like a busy list, but I’ve got an energetic staff and preschooler who can hang! I know the next few months will fly by but we’ll have great memories and photos to cherish. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with all our photos #MaternStaffingSummer
