I wish I were an Oscar Mayer weiner.....

This summer I will be traveling to Iowa from the state of Washington with my girls. Although the travel plans aren't totally set yet this gets me thinking about how much traveling we've done in the last couple years. My husband is in the Army so moving around is part of life.

With all this moving about we've had to become pretty creative as to how we entertain ourselves on the road. We've done the usual games (I spy, Goin' on a camping trip, and 99 bottles of beer). But for some reason my kids favorite is our family's rendition of the Oscar Mayer weiner song.

We are a family of music lovers. My grandmother and uncle used to preform at their local Opera house, and there are various other musicians and dancers scattered among my relatives. Every one in my family has their own musical niche. Mine and my two daughters is singing. So in keeping with the spirit of our musical family, we sing the weiner song in different styles (Blues, Opera, Country, and good ole Rock n Roll). We usually have the windows down too so I can only imagine what those within ear shot must think of my little concert on wheels. If only my grandmother could see me now. But, hey, it keeps the kids from doing the never ending chorus of "are we there yet?"

So, any traditions or unique ways to pass time you'd like to share?

Well there is always the license plate game! And the prices of portable DVD players have gone down big time, so that's always an option.

I can think of a million adult games, but I guess that doesn't help you, does it? LOL
