Hello everyone! Need a fun, frugal day trip idea for the weekend? If you live in the Bucks County area, consider doing this scavenger hunt. Last weekend, our family went to all the locations to find the answers to each of the clue questions. It was a blast! 

We discovered so many new playgrounds and community parks we never knew existed!

You can pick up a scavenger hunt sheet at the Bucks County Visitor Center or download it online. On top of all the exploring you will be enjoying, there is a chance to win some great prizes as well! Besides the scavenger hunt submissions, you can document all your #BucksCountyMoments on Instagram or Twitter. 

Go see our #BucksCountyMoments on my Instagram feed!

Here is a list of all the places we visited: 
  1. Warwick Community Park
  2. Northampton Municipal Park
  3. Middletown Community Park
  4. Lookout Park in Upper Makefield 
  5. Warminster Community Park
  6. Bensalem Central Park
  7. Lenape Park in Perkasie Borough
  8. Laurel Park in Solebury Township
  9. Churchville Nature Center
  10. Veterans Park in Newtown
  11. Visitor Center in Bensalem
  12. Visitor Center in New Hope
This was a wonderful trip! It took a little bit of planning (Thanks, Dad!) to see what was the best route to travel so we would not have to back track. 

Many of the places we visited also had restrooms, picnic areas, fields to run through, and playgrounds. Our girls looked forward to each new destination. They were involved in finding the answers to the clues and knew they had a new playground to explore! 

It was one of our "best days ever"!

Happy Exploring!

Summer Has Arrived!

Today is the last day of school for our girls! They are looking forward to nine weeks of fun-filled, sunny days with family and friends. I will be hanging up our 100 Things to Do Summer List by tonight. We are having a little Kindergarten graduation party for the twins this weekend. Three family birthdays in July including Mike and my two sisters. A big Fourth of July "family fair" celebration at my parents' home. A trip to Hershey Park with a possible stay at the Hershey cabin campgrounds.

Bonfires, swimming, barbeque parties, s'mores, catching lightning bugs and butterflies, sleepovers and late night movies. 

We are ready for you, Summer!
