Bucket List Examples – Making your custom Family Bucket List – My family, just like yours, has things that we want to do together. We talk about going on a hike to our favorite waterfall in the nearby state park, but we also dream about going to Atlantic Canada, seeing the whales, and watching the tide rise 40+ feet at the Bay of Fundy. Some things are easy to do and others would take some planning. So together we decided to come up with the Miller Family Bucket List. What’s a “bucket list”, you ask?

Family Fun Day at Competitive Edge of Woodbridge VA – On February 4th, 2017, Competitive Edge in Woodbridge, Virginia celebrated their first year in business by hosting a free family fun day for all to enjoy. Competitive Edge is a great place to take the family to keep them active, burn some energy and learn healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
We weren’t sure what to get into first when we arrived at the center! There was a golf training station with a virtual screen, Zumba demonstrations, a curve-ball machine to practice our baseball swings and Vertimax assessments to see how high we could jump. When we had worked up an appetite, there were food tastings, food trucks and a nutrition counselor to explain what food choices we could make to keep our bodies and our minds in tip top shape. There was a massage chair to get the kinks out and even a birthday cake to indulge our sweet tooth as we celebrated a successful year in business for Competitive Edge. [Read more…]
