I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Let's Talk About Video Games

Me - I used to like video games. I had a lot of DS games, some computer games and a few Wii games. I had a Littlest Pet Shop video game. I had two Hello Kitty games. I had a bunch of Zhu Zhu video games. I had a bunch of Dora The Explorer video games, but then, I got rid of some because I didn't like her any more. My favorite video game was a My Little Pony game. I  had gotten it for my birthday. I had also got a bunch of other video games I had gotten for my birthday. I got Cooking Mama 2: Chop and Shop. I got Silverlicious. I got Moshi Monsters. I got a Barbie game. I got Zoobles. All of those are DS games. Me and my sister used to trade DS games but I always wanted mine back. She never wanted to give them back. Mom got mad because we were always fighting about it. Later, we just shared DS games. I had a bunch of learning games for my computer. I had three Nickelodeon games for the Wii. Later, I got some more Wii games. Now, I mostly play games on my iPod or my Mom's iPad.
Mom - I am not now,  and I have never been big on video games. I don't like violent games. I don't like games about aliens and creatures. I don't like games about other worlds. I don't like sports game. I do like sports at least some sports like hockey and baseball. I was just never very good at those games. I like game shows games like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. I used to have a whole bunch of them for the computer. I haven't really played any of those in a while though. Not since before I was married and had kids. We are hoping to get some of those for our Wii sometime though. I like games where you can do real things like take care of a baby or sell clothes or something. I don't really play these type of games, but my girls did. I like games where you can learn things. They never really had games like this when I was young. My girls played them though. Luckily, they liked learning games too. I like games where you can accomplish something like learning a language or getting exercise. I have a Wii fit. I have had it for a quite a while, but I haven't learned how to use it yet. I'll have to ask my kids about that. Kids always seem to know everything about video games without even having to be taught. I never did though. I must have been one of the few that didn't. Of course, video games were not as popular when as was a kid anyway.

And that's our view. What is your favorite video game?

Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.

  1. I remember when Atari came out and we thought that was the most awesome thing. LOL
