Not so trivial pursuit

Okay. Most of you probably didn't know that I like trivia. Whenever Elliott and I go on road trips, with anyone, we have this thing we do where we have a quiz at the end of each day. The quiz is cumulative, too, so by the end of the trip, you have to be able to recall stuff from the whole trip. Totally trivial, but really fun! I came across this site while I was wandering through blog land. It's a test to see how many countries you know out of the 192 that are members of the United Nations. Just start typing and as soon as you've spelled one right, it starts a list below the place where you type. You don't have to hit enter. You get 10 minutes and then it gives you a chance to see how "well" you did. I'll go ahead and tell you that I only got 35 the first time I did it. What good is it to know all those countries, you ask? Well, I'm sure if you were ever on Jeopardy it would come in handy, or at a party......of total nerds, or if you're up late and can't sleep just start naming countries. That would work better than Lunesta for me!

The Amazing Climbing Parks

In keeping with the Park tradition of climbing, just this morning, our newest little acrobat, April, decided to audition for our circus by showing us what she could do. I think she will fit in quite nicely. We just need to get her a sparkly little outfit!

Blog Break

It is apparent that I am not the only one who hasn't blogged in a couple of weeks. For those of you who have, you get a gold star! I have figured out that for moms, spring break and summer vacation are not breaks or vacation at all. It's when the kids are in school that I can get the most done. Anyway, I thought of a fun way for everyone who hasn't blogged in a while to post something new without having to think too hard. You may, however, have to do some running around your house to answer these!

Name 3 cereals in your pantry. Wheat chex, Grape Nuts (off brand), Life

Name 3 beverages in your fridge. Milk, cranberry cherry juice, tea

What is the oldest thing in your freezer? John's first catfish. We intended to eat it, but I think it's been too long now.

Name the last drive-thru you visited. Whataburger for breakfast.

How do you like a made-to-order hamburger? Everything on it. Plus mustard and mayo.

What kind of shampoo do you currently have in your shower? White Rain Fruit Fortifying (it was on sale)

What kind of dish detergent are you currently using? I'm out, but I just finished a bottle of Cascade

What kind of laundry detergent are you currently using? Gain, always Gain

What toilet paper is your family using right now? (I don't need to know the square footage!) - Cottonelle

What CD is in your player right now (be it car, home stereo, computer)? BFW worship mix

Name the last thing you recorded on tv. Don't have a recorder or tivo but the last thing I watched was American Idol
