Here are some videos of the kids playing Wii. In the first, they are playing doubles tennis and in the second, they are playing baseball. Believe it or not, Molly is really playing right alongside Max. In the baseball video, Molly is "pitching" while Max is batting and in the tennis video they are playing doubles on the same team.

So for almost a year I've been debating about whether our next generation gaming platform would be a Wii or a PS3. We had a huge stock of PS2 games that I thought would be nice to keep backwards compatability to, but you want to know what finally helped me make up my mind to go with a Wii?
When Sony's lawyers classified me as a thief, I decided I never wanted to give them any more of my money. So Wii it is...

Max tracked out from year-round school on Friday and we thought we'd take advantage of his non-traditional school break to head down to Myrtle Beach for a couple of days of fun in the sun. As Sunday, September 30th was sort of the "last day" of summer for most of the beach attractions, we pretty much had the place to ourselves the entire time we were there.
We got a great rate at the Hampton Inn at Broadway at the Beach. None of the restaurants or attractions were crowded, and the kids pretty much could walk on to rides at the NASCAR SpeedPark (Max's favorite) withou any wait. Even the weather was warm enough to swim in the ocean so it turned out to be a just about perfect October beach holiday.
I've posted some pictures from our trip over at Flickr.
