wii will rock you

Adam and I traveled to Idaho Falls over Easter weekend to visit the Stewart clan. And there were absolutely no plans of exercising. That is, until we wii'd. 

Now, we started playing the Mario/Sonic Olympics, with the 100 meter run as our first event. This involves the pitter patter of your arms at furious speeds. Or, in Adam's case, sporting pirate-like facial expressions. Arghh!

But back to the surprise exercise. After we ran the track, rowed some boats and jumped the tramp, I felt searing pain in my arms for four (yes, four!) days. And I know what you're thinking: "Come on Bri, it's a video game! Exercise? Really?"

Yes, really. It's all fun and games until you can't lift your arms above your shoulders.

Here are two other snapshots of our fun, fun weekend. (Thanks for the pics, Michelle!) Above, Adam and I played house by posing for a family portrait with Michelle and Drew's cute kids. And below, Adam and I struck a fierce, top-model pose.

Eat your heart out Tyra Banks.

So many comments to make.
1) Knowing your slightly competitive nature I was not surprised to hear your arms hurt for four days :)

2) You should somehow steal those kids - you make an adorable family

3) Your top model pictures is making me crave a ANTM fest.

Love you Breezers!

Breezy! I saw your comment on Meg's Easter post and got oh so happy to know that you have a blog! Welcome! :) I recently played the Tennis Wi game and had SERIOUS tennis arm for days and received Must ridiculing from Duog's family. Thank you for not making me feel like a lone looser in this world any longer!

Okay first of all I miss you. But second of all the last time I did wii boxing I wanted to die the next day and could not move my upper body. I think that is the most amazing invention ever. Love you!

I don't like to brag, but I am killer good at Wii tennis. I'm just saying...

LOVE the ANTM pose (yes, I actually KNOW that acronym, I'm embarrassed to say).

Love you both!
