and then there was “Wii”

After a LOT of pennies, of course! We had been saving our pennies and were all set to get a pool last week and then it rained…and then we discovered that our background is not *quite* as level as we thought it was…and it needs to be for the pool. So, I started thinking about the Wii again, since the yard is going to be a couple week project. I knew we were going to get one eventually…I thought it would be once the stimulus check hit since it would probably take that long to even find one.

On a whim, Bryan jotted down a few places to call, Wally World in FWB and Destin, Target in FWB and Destin, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc…all were no’s and they didn’t know when they were going to get any in. Until, we called Gamestop in Destin. As fate would have it, they *just* got a shipment in today and only had 5 left. So, I robbed Jacey’s piggybank for the toll money since I had no cash on me (one of these days I am going to get a dern SunPass thingy) and we hightailed it over there. Luckily, they still had them…

Success!

Jacey is thrilled, she fell in love with the Wii when she was going to the youth center on base. She got to play for a bit before heading to bed and then Bryan and I played for a hour and a half. It is a ton of fun and boy am I going to feel it in my arms tomorrow. I kicked Bryan’s hiney in boxing and he whooped up on me in the Wii Play games.

    We LOVE the Wii!! Both kids enjoy it, as well as my parents!!! There’s Wii Fitness coming out soon which looks like an awesome way to exercise too! If you like games like shooting water in the clown’s mouth, skee ball, throwing darts at balloons, etc, I highly recommend the Carnival game. :)
