The first one is the "license plate" game. I printed out a list of all of the states and we are keeping track of each time we see a license plate from a state we hadn't seen before. When we see one from a state we cross that off our list. Between yesterday and today, we've already seen plates from 37 states, and 4 Canadian provinces! We even saw a plate from Hawaii while we were in Kansas today- talk about random!
The second game we are playing is called "our digital safari" this one is all about taking of pictures of animals we see along the way. Each animal only counts once-if you take a picture of one cow, no need to take a picture of another.
So far we've seen pretty "normal" animals, Shirley and Ed's cat, Bear, some horses, cows, sheep, etc...and up until this afternoon I hadn't gotten any noteworthy pictures...that was until Hubby spotted these fellows for me!
Needless to say, I was pretty tickled to see these American Buffalo (or as AJ insists "they are BISON Mom!")
Anywhooo...We are now in Missouri, and almost ready to stop for the night in Columbia. Another long day of driving is nearly done, and the best news is that we only have about 350 miles left to drive tomorrow!
