As we were driving through the mountains last week, Maddie kept commenting how it was just like playing Mario Kart on the Wii -- which was my Mother's Day gift (along with some very pretty roses that Maddie picked out for me).
I am a gamer -- I've had every Nintendo system that ever came out (except a few of the weird GameBoy variations) and I play Nintendo DS every day. Maddie is following in my footsteps, but Pete was never really into these things until the Wii entered our home. (My Christmas gift the year it came out -- Yes, Pete stood in lines and tried to get one for me. Poor guy!) Now we all play together and I think that Mario Kart has been the best game so far for family fun. I highly recommend it for the gamers and non-gamers in your family as it is so much more interactive than having your kids sitting around playing game by themselves and it's not violent (yeah for non-violent video games!)
Anyone tried the Wii Fit? I'm so curious as it seem like something that would be right up my alley if it functions well.
