Even Steven on a Road Trip

By  | 

We logged over 30 hours in the minivan with all three kids on our family vacation last week.

I have so much to tell you about the trip, but I think we should play a little game first…

I like to call it:

Even Steven: On a Road Trip

Here’s how it works.

I give you a little scenario that happened in the car, and you try to guess what face Even Steven made.

The person that gets the most right, gets to take my place on the next road trip with Even Steven!

Okay – let’s start.

Scenario #1

We’ll start with an easy one.

What face did Even Steven make when he was trapped in a minivan with all three kids and his wife for 30 hours (over the course of 10 days)?

If you guessed this face, then give yourself one point!

Scenario #2

Heavy Rain and Fog

What face did Even Steven make when he was driving his family of five through the mountains in heavy rain and fog?

If you guessed this face, then give yourself one point!

Scenario #3

Fighting in the Car

What face did Even Steven make when the older two kids were fighting like cats and dogs in the minivan, and I spent my time taking pictures of them instead of trying to stop the fighting (and yelling)?

If you guessed this face, then give yourself one point!

Scenario #4

Corneal Abrasion

What face did Even Steven make when we spent an hour driving out of our way to find an Urgent Care in the middle of nowhere, North Carolina to get medical treatment for sweet Simon (who had a corneal abrasion – most likely from some beach sand)?

If you guessed this face, then give yourself one point!

Scenario #5

Nervous Mom

What face did Even Steven make when I drove the car for two hours (out of 30)?

Newspaper

I got a little tricky on you there, didn’t I? If you guessed it right, then give yourself a point!

Scenario #6

Crazies in the Car

What face did Even Steven make when the kids pretended to be circus animals and yelled at the top of their lungs (while the baby played with a prescription bottle)?

Even-Steven-Original

If you guessed this face, then give yourself one point!

Scenario #7

What face did Even Steven make when I was too car sick in the mountains to parent (or take pictures)?

Even-Steven-Original

If you guessed this face, then give yourself one point!

Scenario #8

Sleeping Mom

What face did Even Steven make when the kids and I ALL slept at the same time?

Happy Even Steven

If you guessed this face, then give yourself one point!

Anyone that got all eight points, pack your bags!

You get to take my place on the next family road trip. You just have to take pictures rather than parent, sleep when the kids sleep, and occasionally get too car sick to do anything other than eat twizzlers and complain.

Any winners?

    I got 7 out of 8…I figured he would be napping instead of reading the paper! 😉 How did you enjoy North Carolina?? So close to us and yet so far! ;)-The Dose Girls

    7/8 also. I, too, thought he would be napping while you drove. Looks like a good time was had by (almost) all!

    Love it! My husband never lets me drive on trips (which is fine by me!)

    I must ask, what car do you have that you can get all 3 kids across one seat like that? We couldn’t find one and ended up with the dreaded minivan!

    I love that we usually see Even Steven in the blue polo and in the newpaper photo he’s still wearing a blue polo…although different shade and with long sleeves. Are blue polos the Even Steven uniform?

    Oh my gosh I totally just snorted! This was hysterical! My Hubs hates it when we are living our life and I”m collecting blog material. We can’t help it, right? This might be the BEST and most accurate post on the planet!!
