Not a whole lot going on with us over the past month. I just finished working on Valerie’s Program. It’s a good thing too, it was due tomorrow. I’ll probably be busy all this weekend with the GARC Championship stuff for Val.
When I have had time away from work, and second job of supporting Valerie’s Rifle team with some hobby programming, I’ve stolen a few moments of time playing games with the Kids. We like board games. We like video games. But we really prefer the ones that are easy to pick up and fun for everyone to play and watch.
Here are the two little ones playing a little bit of Karaoke revolution.
Only problem is, Olivia has more fun licking the microphone than singing into it. I don’t care though, it’s neat to watch them playing.
But even cooler than all that going on… Dad and Mom came to visit us last week. Only problem was it was too short.
Dad’s shipping off to Iraq again in a few more days. So he wanted to see the kids before he left. He also happened to be bringing us a Big Screen TV since he had just bought a new HDTV and needed to get rid of his. Seeing as how our new house sorely needed a big screen television because of the sheer size of the living room (I no longer have to wear my glasses just to see the screen) we were happy to oblige.
Anyway, because he had to go get ready to pack and all, he decided to leave the next day. We packed up the Kids and went to Tupelo with them (since it’s on their way home) and messed around in town a little bit. Which leads me to my next topic.
I’ve been looking for one for a while. They are nearly impossible to find in the stores. I’m sure that will get better soon. But we still look every time we go. Anyway, Last Saturday, we got lucky and scored one at a Wal-Mart in Pontotoc. It was their last. I set it up that night on the big screen that we just got.
We really do have the perfect room for this console. Anyway, the whole family’s had a blast with it. The Wiimote is just too cool. We don’t have anything except the Wii Sports games that come with it. But honestly, those are pretty good, and they really show off what it can do.
The bowling and Tennis are definitely my favorites though.
Sarah’s getting good at Bowling too.
Last night, she actually bowled three strikes in a row in the tenth frame to beat me by one point! 186 – 185. This console is too cool.
Until next time. I’ll try to get Val to post some good pictures sometime. I’ll maybe post a few from GARC this weekend as well.
