Good evening, Persephoneers! I hope that your weekend was lovely and your Monday is off to a good start. My family declared this past weekend a three-day weekend, so my work week officially starts tomorrow.
This weekend we drove a total of about 12 hours, split over the course of three days. I won’t lie, we were happy to get out of the car tonight. My kids, for the most part, are good travelers, but after a few hours, they get restless. This weekend, I armed them with new things to color and look at, a few new apps on their iPods.
Here’s my question for you – what did you do on long car trips as a kid? I remember playing “the alphabet game,” for we had to find each letter of the alphabet, in order, as we drove by billboards. We also played the license plate game, for which, you guessed it, we kept a list of the license plates we saw. We were always excited to find the ever-elusive Hawaii or Alaska.
What did you do in the backseat of your family car for hours and hours?
