What Wii fun we had!

Wii pic 2 So this past week for Family Day we went to Concord Mills mall.  A huge mall about 30 miles from us.  We wanted to just go walk around and play.  Zachary rode the merry-go-round twice, the train and played in the kids area for a while.  We had a blast.  After lunch, we were headed to see the fish at the Bass Pro Shop and ran into the WiiSports Resort.  Literally!  They had a large area roped off with palm trees and decorations.  When you walked in, they put flowers around your neck.  Inside there were TVs everywhere with different games from the new WiiSports Resort edition.  Let's just say we had a blast!  You can see that Zachary had fun from the picture.  He played sword play with his dad.  It was hysterical.  We don't have a Wii, but have wanted one.  There is just something about being active while you play a game together.  You just can't help but laugh.  It takes me back to the days when my family would gather for holidays and we would play group games like Taboo, Guesstures or Win, Lose or Draw.  We would laugh and laugh as we watched our family members look incredibly silly trying to get their team to guess the answer.  Oh, what fun we had. I'll never forget those days.  I guess the WWii picii is a new-age version of those games.  When you play them with friends or family, you just laugh and cheer and have a great time.  Maybe one day soon, we'll get a Wii.  You certainly get your heart pumping.  It was another fun day for the Spahr family.   I love Family Days.  Next week we are headed to Hendersonville, NC for their Apple Festival.  Can't wait for that!  Have any fun family outings to share?  Would love to hear what you do!
