Wheeeee!

We went to visit Number Two Son over the weekend, staying in our camper van in a campsite near Brighton Marina for two nights, and spending Friday evening with him and most of Saturday too. We had a great time; he cooked for us on Friday evening and then on Saturday we went out for lunch. But on both days we played on his Wii. It was the first time we'd had the chance to have a go and I must say it was great fun. He had Wii Sports and Wii Fit, and we went on several of the games. Truth be told I was pretty hopeless at most of them, but did manage to win one of the golf games. I was hopeless using the board and doing some balancing game, absolutely hopeless, and then of course we were laughing so much I didn't stand a chance of improving.

How was I? Well, sadly, not quite this ...
















But then again, not quite this either ....

























Now we're trying to find a reason to justify buying one for ourselves.

It is fun...both of my sons' families have them. They even made a mii of me.

I'm told that the new XBox Kinect is even more entertaining, but I haven't tried that yet.

Seems you had a lovely visit. Loved your illustrations.

The Wii is quite a piece of technology...daughter and her family have one and really enjoy it. I did the bowling part one time..not very good. I also tried playing the guitar...also was lousy on that. But the fun factor is fantastic.

We love our wii, watch out though, once you've got one you'll be shopping for new games.

You need a reason? Health and fitness - get Wii Fit, problem sorted!

I heard how people are really enjoying the Wii, but haven't made the plunge yet. I've never actually tried to do it myself. I'll wait to see what you say after buying one.
