The first day was mostly driving. I had taken a bunch of things to amuse us during the drive. The first was Mad Libs. They are a lot of fun on trips. They got us through about an hour and a half of the drive with 5 kids. Then we started playing Taboo. It's a game where you have to try and make your team say something with out saying certain words, like trying to get them to guess the word pizza without saying crust, tomato sauce, cheese, eat, or pepperoni. So you end up giving clues like, "Its this thing that you might ingest, you order it and it's delivered and it tastes good". You can basically say anything but those 6 words. This can get hilarious.
Here are some of the clues I heard on our trip:
It's something soft to lay your cranium on"
"It's like a screw, but it's not."
"It's a fake girly thing with 4 legs with something on it's head"
and the brilliant "It's a, it's like a, it's a, well, uh, I don't know."
I've got to say that all the kids were extremely well behaved considering how long the trip was and how tired they had to be. There were some very minor spats and one small temper flare, but overall, they were absolutely great and I was very proud of all of them.
