We got a Wii yesterday

Just come back from San Francisco last Saturday. We went to T&T and Costco for grocery.
Later afternoon, we stopped in the EB Games, a game store.
We found Wii there and it is $269.00 with Wii Sports. After a short discussing with Vivian and We decided to buy it.
Grace and Gloria are so exciting. When we headed into home with the Wii box, they can not wait any more.
I unpacked the box, connect the cables and setup the console. They phoned their friends to announce this great news.
I do like the Tennis. I played about 1 hour yesterday. I think it works on fitness job.
See some photos in the next post.
