American Picking with Capri Sun Big Pouch

Monday, September 23, 2013

Last weekend my stepdaughter, husband and myself decided to spend an evening catching up on one of our favorite shows, American Pickers.  So on a recent trip trip to Walmart, we decided to stock up on our favorite snacks and treats.  Sophie's eye caught the new Capri Sun Big Pouch drinks, so of course we had to throw a few into our cart for our American Pickers marathon!  Luckily we were able to score all of our favorite flavors even though the selection had been picked over a bit.  Sophie loved the Capri Sun Big Pouch Fruit Punch while my husband and I enjoyed the Capri Sun Big Pouch Maui Cooler and Strawberry Kiwi flavors.  The Capri Sun Big Pouches made the perfect addition to our family evening of snacks and American Pickers.  Plus the great thing about these pouches is their size -- you can definitely savor the flavor and taste because of they are over 11 ounces of yummy juice!

My husband and his teen daughter are completely nature and adventure fanatics.  After our marathon of American Pickers episodes, my husband decided that it was a great time to go through the crates and boxes his dad recently sent over to us that had been sitting in his basement for years.  Currently they are stored in our attic so we decided to get our own picking kit together to explore what treasures we could find in these boxes.

As we searched the items we needed for our kit, we came across a new contest hosted by Mike Wolfe, creator and star of American Pickers on History.  All you need to do is take a picture of an item you found picking, complete the entry form and upload your picture.  The winner gets the opportunity to head down to Nashville with three other family or friends and go on a picking exploration with Mike Wolfe, the creator and star of American Pickers on History himself!  There are also 100 other winners who will win a Capri Sun Pickers Prize Package that includes all the tools you need to go on a picking adventure yourself - including The Kid Pickers book, a messenger bag, gloves, a bandana, a journal and pen, flashlights, t-shirt, carabineers and a magnifying glass.
We were also able to get some great picking tips from Mike Wolfe, creator and star of American Pickers on History by watching his webisode before we started our adventure.

Check it out yourself!

Kurtis, Sophie and I were super excited to find out this picking adventure with Mike Wolfe, the creator and star of American Pickers on History and Capri Sun Big Pouches.  So we got to assembling our own picking kit to use as we sorted through the crates and tubs in the attic.

We included: 
  • gloves to protect our hands
  • a bandana to cover our face to help not breathe in all the dust and dirt
  • a little bag to hold any of our picking items we found
  • a flashlight so we could see where we were going 
  • a notepad and pen to write down any important information that we found that may go along with our picks. 
Of course we also had our Capri Sun Big Pouches to quench our thirst because we knew we'd get thirsty with all of our picking!

We took our kit and headed to the attic access door to start pulling out the boxes and crates to search away.  At first we just came across old items that Kurtis' dad had saved from back in the day such as newspapers, sports videos and even Kurtis' homecoming crown!  But then, we came across a box that was filled with some great finds!  This tub contained old ornaments that had been used by the family's great grandmother.  There were old magazines and newspaper clippings and then we found this brass musical angel that was in great condition.  This angel is obviously old because of the dated material, so we decided this would be the perfect pick to use for our contest entry.

This was a really fun day for our family.  Kurtis and I don't get to spend a lot of time with our teen stepdaughter, so this picking adventure gave us the perfect opportunity to share some laughs and fun together - especially before our family expands even more.  Whether we win the grand prize and the chance to go picking with Mike Wolfe, creator and star of American Pickers on History or one of the one hundred Capri Sun Pickers Prize Packages, we had a great day of family bonding and picking through our attic of mysteries.
