Guess what Wii got?

That's right, the time has come for the Alvord family to finally get a gaming console. Josh decided to get a Wii for his birthday. We ran out and got it Friday night. Everyone came over for the grand opening of the Wii.

The boys started out while we enjoyed pomegranates.

Then it was our turn. Apparently Brooke and I put our whole bodies into this game. This picture captures it so perfectly.

We won and it had nothing to do with me. I'm horrible at tennis, even when it's video game style.

Josh's follow though while bowling.

Now when we all get together after dinner the boys will have something else to do besides watch football. At least this is interactive, right?

at least it's a video game that gets you moving. we got the wwi fit. kind of lame. the yoga is a joke but the resistance and cardio might be okay. i will stick with the gym and real yoga.

I like your console choice! The Wii is way better than the others. Plus, all of those guys each have an XBox anyways..maybe 2. haha

Yay! Congrats on your purchase! Wii love ours too! They are coming out with some many fun things I love it. Dont know if you knew this but you can get old school mario bros for like 5 or 10 bucks through the system itself. Some many memories you can bring back from playing the best games ever!
