Wii had fun this wiikend.

My nephew, Ryan, is in town. Sort of. He is about an hour away going to his "A" school for the US Coast Guard. He will be there for the next 8-9 weeks. I am thrilled. And so are the girls. We haven't EVER been able to spend so much time with him.

I picked him up Friday evening and brought him to our house. We all had dinner together. I was willing to cook, but Danny insisted on taking us out for a nice Italian meal.

We all pretty much hung out together. Not doing anything really spectacular. Except for being together.

Sunday Melissa (9yrs old)set up the Wii. She loves to box in there. Danny (53yrs old) challenged her to a match. So, she knocked him out. Then Ryan (20yrs old) challenged her and she knocked him out too. Then for some reason Melissa decided to take the Wii fitness test to find out her Wii age. She is 54 according to the Wii. Ryan is the youngest, coming in at 34. Megan is next at 67. Morgan and Danny tied at 68. And I am inching my walker in last place at 75.

The fitness test consisted of bowling, tennis and baseball. I did great with the tennis. Okay with the baseball. I made contact, but no homeruns. But I really suck in the bowling part.

I refuse to let this get to me. But I am going to practice. It cannot remain that I am older than Danny. Not even in a game. I mean, he is older than the dinosaurs...

Sounds like you had a lot of fun.

Bet your girls liked having a "big brother" sort of cousin hanging around. :)

He is older than the dinosaurs, that's priceless. Obviously, this is a flawed system - the ages are just all wrong. That's my story for you.

Love that Melissa knocked everyone out - yep, that's my girl!
