Do you play any car games while you're on road trips? Counting "slug bugs" or spotting trains for instance. My family was really big on car games as we took lots of road trips gowing up. It was a mixed blessin for my parents, I think, beause it kept us busy and free of arguments, but we'd call out just about everything unique we saw.
Now that I'm grow up Aaron and I have our own car games we play. We slug each other for slug bugs, throw up a "peace sign" for Volvo's (cuz it makes a V with your fingers), double fist slug for Mini Coopers (and call them in a silly voice saying "mini coooooooop"), and push up our glasses for Smart Cars. (There are variations of this for the driver for safety.)
We live out in an area that's mostly desert and farmland so there's a ton of wildlife that I enjoy counting. "Big birds" like bald eagles, hawks, and ospray. Animals like marmots, sheep, goats, deer, and elk. And the most exciting of all (if you're me) military vehicles- jeeps, armored vehicles, medical trucks, double helicopters, and jets. Oh! And windmills (pronounce windmeels, if you're me ;D).
For as long as I've had this blog I thought about writing down a tally of all the cool things I saw, but never did because I thought people would think I'm silly. Well I don't mind if people find I'm silly, and I count things every trip so it's kinda a big deal to me.
So this last weekend we went to Boise for a wedding, and I counted a lot of fun things!
• 1 bajillion Volvos (I stopped counting in the first hour cuz there were so many) (for this reason we just stopped counting vehicles all together)
• 16 big birds
• 2 herds of goats
• 1 herd of sheep
• 1 herd of just bulls
• 4 military vehicles (including one very small convoy)
• 3 trains
• 3 pockets of windmills
There, I did it! That wasn't painful at all and you'll prbably not stop reading my blog because of this post. Right?! >.<;;
What car games do you play on road trips?
