the alphabet game || "rock climbing"

Saturday, May 21, 2016

Long car rides make for interesting games.
Like when you are on the highway for hours and you start up the "alphabet" game by going through the alphabet and finding words (on signs, cars, license plates, ect.) going through A to Z.
We actually made it through the whole alphabet, (kinda cheated with the letter X, a license plate on a car had to substitute lol).

"Rock climbing" is hard. Well, that wall was anyways. Like, when you got just about up there—your hands started slipping until you had to jump off because you couldn't get a grip. I just sat there staring as six year olds climbed it with ease.
Whaaaa?
I have gone rollerblading and ice skating before, (had a huge purple bruise to prove it) but it was super fun. ;)

P.S. I have a huge surprise for you all coming up in my next post..be prepared!



do you have any game suggestions for long car rides?
have you ever gone actual rock climbing, ice skating or rollerblading?

  1. An entertaining car game we've played is a variation of "I spy". Instead of giving a letter, you just call out every time you see it again (so, obviously, it has to be something you'll see frequently). Everybody has to guess what it is :). My Dad did "tire pieces on the side of the road" one time... NOOOOOBODY got that one, hahaha!

    1. lol! Dad's always come up with the best things, don't they? hahaa, I saw a few "tire pieces on the side of the road" along our trip. ;) Sounds like a fun game! :D

  2. Although the abc game is fun, we play mafia a lot. It's super fun, but only works with about 4 people or more. Whenever I go rock climbing my foot is just barely holding on to the rock.

    1. How do you play mafia? I've never heard of it before. XD IKR? What's hard is that last 'oomph' to get yourself to the top. Or when your hand's start slipping. ;)

  3. THE ALPHABET GAME. Ahh, my family has played that one many 'a time. :)

    Ooh, yes, Mafia is very fun. :) It's sorta difficult to explain... you could look it up? :P

    Mmm, surprises are always good. *rubs hands in excitement*

    1. It's pretty fun when everyone does it, though, it is sometimes a bit unfair because my dad is in the front and can see everything before anyone else. lol!

      hahaa, I'm pretty excited about it. ;)

  4. I've played that game before. ;) I've also ice skated. My dad made an ice rink in our yard once, and it was so cool. :D (we lived in Minnesota at the time)

    1. That sounds like the coolest thing. We've had some patches of ice in our yard that we "skated" on one year (with our boots). Isn't it so thrilling to go fast?? ;)

    2. It was pretty awesome. :) I haven't skated in a long time.. but I'm sure skating fast was fun. :D Our driveway would sometimes have ice on it too, so we could slide on the driveway. Our winters don't have much fun stuff like that now. :P

    3. I remember rollerblading (on ice), in the winter (obviously,) while playing basketball. Smart child, hm? It was very fun though..lol. XD

  5. I love that first picture!! And all of them, really, but the first one especially. I happen to really like fences. ;-)

    Haha, we play the alphabet game sometimes. We usually play a game we call "Guess Who" -- it's sort of like 20 questions, only you use people you know and the other players have to ask yes or no questions to try to figure out who the person is. It's really fun if you have a bunch of friends who know the same people.

    Mafia is AWESOME, just sayin'. ;-P

    1. Thanks, Emma! <3 It was so golden, and the grass was so perfect that both my sister and I reached for our cameras at the same time. ;)

      The 'guess who' sounds like a super fun game..*takes mental note* I'll have to suggest that next time. ;)

  6. ^^^^I agree with Sarah and Bernie! Mafia is the best!
    Iceskating and rollerblading is awesome! I prefer rollerblading myself (cause I don't look like a total dunce like when I crash my face into the ice when I ice-skate...) XD
    So excited for your next post!

    1. Rollerblading is really fun. lol! At least with ice skating you can wear lots of clothing for protection. ;) I think both are fun, but they should totally make the roller rinks bigger. ;)
