“Ladybug!” Charlie yells. “Oh, good one.” Joe replies.
My boys created a new car game. Inspired by their love for ladybugs, they now play a game they call Ladybug. When you see a red car you are to yell “Ladybug!”; if you are the first one to yell the word then you get a point. Be careful, though. If you see a yellow car and you yell “Chicken” before your opponent, then your opponent will lose all their points. You see, chickens eat ladybugs.
The creation of this game comes at a perfect time. We are hitting the road next week and heading to Nova Scotia, and I am certain we’ll see lots of ladybugs and chickens. Feel free to join in the fun and play our game. I’ll extend your thanks to Joe and Charlie for the idea. You’re welcome.

Ha! We used to make up random odd games too. Fun.
I’m glad they just made it up. The novelty should last the entire trip. I doubt they will want to play it on the way back, though.
That’s a much nicer version of “Punch Buggie”!!
Yes. When non-contact games are invented, they have my full support and encouragement. I remember playing “Punch Bug” as a kid. I still have bruises from my siblings. Oh even better, the “Let’s see who can hit the softest” game. My siblings always had me go first. I’d lightly touch them, and the would slug me. “Oh. I lost.” The sibling would say. *sigh*
There’s no hitting or throwing? Wow you guys are good.
Stop and say hi if you get a chance!
Well, the hitting comes when one gets 24 ladybugs to the other guy’s 16 ladybugs. Sometimes the game is short lived.
I sent you an email regarding saying ‘hi’.
Ha! That’s a great game. And I hope you have a WONDERFUL trip (I would love to visit Nova Scotia someday; it looks so beautiful)! 🙂
Put it on your bucket list, Jules. It is a fantastic place to visit. Consider it a little Ireland closer to home.
Sounds like fun!
The game, AND the vacation!
I hope you have a safe trip AND a wonderful time, Ms. D!!!
Feel free to play the game with Annabelle during your travels. Thank you for the well wishes. I hope your next trip is a good one, too.
That sounds like a fun game!
It is a fun game, Patti! Try it!
