How do you pass the time on a long car ride? We had about 32 driving hours to kill on our vacation, and while I drove most of them (Mainly due to car sickness -- it's much better when I drive and much worse when I'm a passenger. And don't even think of sitting me in the back seat!), it was still boring after a while.
Enter the License Plate State game! Each of us made a guess as to how many states we would see -- cars and other passenger vehicles count -- no semis! Maddie kept track, thus learning her state abbreviation. On the drive down to South Carolina I won, so I got a prize:
I use my Le Creuset French Oven and Stockpot all the time, so the Le Creuset Soup Pot it was! A bit smaller than the French Oven, which is perfect for our little family of three. Thank goodness the Le Creuset outlet was open early Saturday morning when we drove past!
I won on the way home too -- so I guess I have another prize coming. I think I'll combine two of my loves -- video games and knitting -- and purchase Kirby's Epic Yarn for the Wii when it comes out next week.
Tomorrow I show off my recently completed quilt!
