Wade's Wii

When I asked Wade what he wanted for his birthday, I expected him to say, "Oh nothing..." like he always does. This year, however, he fired back with, "a Wii!!!" I never in a million years thought that my almost 29 year-old hubby would want a video game system. What the heck?!?!

This conversation was several weeks ago. I started casually looking at Walmart and Target whenever I happened to be at one of those places. I soon realized that those little boogers are hard to find! I decided last Wednesday that I was going to make a point of searching for one. After going to 6 different places on Wednesday morning, I finally found one! I let Wade open it early (his b-day isn't until the 11th). He has been playing non-stop ever since. (I have to admit, it is REALLY fun. Even for a non-video game type of girl like me.)

The first day that we opened it, we laughed about all the warnings that are constantly popping up. They warn you to make sure that no one is within arms reach of you when you play. We made fun of the warnings. That is until I went in for a wicked back-hand shot, while playing tennis, and whacked poor Clayton in the head. Ooops! Perhaps we should make this an after-Clayton-goes-to-bed activity...

On the game it allows you to test your "Fitness Age." Wade did his first - he was 30 something. I took my turn next. Granted, I am not the most coordinated person. But, I wasn't prepared for my score. 74 years-old!!! I am happy to report, however, that after a few days of playing I am now down to a young 36. :)

Here are some pics of Wade & Clayton playing Guitar Hero. Clayton insists on wearing one of Wade's hats backwards. He also says things like, "Let's jam out, Dad!"

Why did you have to get Guitar Hero after I left. I want to play that!!! I will have to play when we come for Clayton's b-day! Rock on, Clay boy, Rock ON!
