Wii have been busy

Besides Wyatt's tonsil/adenoid/ear tubes surgery, why has it taken me weeks to get Christmas posted? One of a few reasons -blame it on the Wii! Even though we have had the Wii for a while, we got a couple new games that all five of us have been enjoying.

First off, the boys (ahem) got Outdoor Adventure for Christmas. It comes with a mat that can be walked or run on, -even jumped on. The boys like to play the log game where they can run up to then jump over the log. They are all pretty good at it, but it is pretty funny to see them do it.

As if we weren't having enough fun on the Wii, Don went and got us the Wii Fit! The boys love doing all the balance games and we can even talk them into doing yoga exercises. My personal favorite is one I just discovered the other day. It is the running exercise. You just run in place, holding the Wii remote and it takes your Mii through the trail. Or in our house, I give Jax the remote and watch all three of them run themselves silly. They love it, it gets out their energy, and I get to sit back and watch.

See, it is a win-win for all!

Ooh! How much did that Wii Fit cost? I've been thinking of getting one, and I really like the idea of a "running trail."

Except I hate yoga. Hate it. I need to move or I lose my mind!

For about $90 you get the game and the step thing. Since you guys have artic weather right now, it would be great to pass the day with this.

I just did a check and amazon has them for $115.

Thanks! I'll keep my eyes open for it.

We too love the Wii. Let me know what games you have and if we have anything you don't, we'll pack them. My kids love to bowl, Grace is like super bowler, it's hysterical. Can't wait!!!
Love you!

Too cute! I haven't let my boys play Wii Fit because I don't want them trashing my board. They do like the Outdoor Challenge more and more as they get used to it. I had to cut back their video time though, they were getting too addicted.
