Ok, I am sure most of you know what a wii game system is, and many of you have played them. Last month, my parents bought one. They had been considering it after hearing from their grandson Evan and Miss Paula about the fun their family has had having sports tournaments right in their living room! Then we were invited to Becky's home (Hospitality Lane) to play wii with their family. Well, we had such a blast that the grandparents decided to go for it!
We are all having so much fun! Anytime we go to their house we get to play wii on Grandpa's big screen tv and on Sundays they come here to spend the afternoon, Grandpa usually has the wii in tow!
I can't tell you the fun it is to play and also to observe our multi-generational family all playing wii. Just last night Rachel and Grandma played doubles in tennis, various people took turns playing baseball, Grandma, Emily, Rachel and I bowled! I scored a 134 and then a 179! I couldn't believe it! I had a turkey (3 strikes in a row) then 5 spares! Wow! I even called Becky because I know she would be so proud of me! hee hee!
I have heard of the fun that folks are having in retirement centers with wii, and I just think it is fantastic! If you get the chance to play wii, you should give it a try. I was never a fan of "video" games, I never got into "Donkey Kong" or "Mario" even when my family would play for hours. But the wii, is too much fun, and the opportunity to play with 3 generations is so cool!
