Good Night, Kids—We’re Gonna Play With Your Toy

What happens when two tired parents play with their kids’ Christmas present once they’re sweetly tucked into bed? Well, a lot—bowling, volleyball, track and field, and looking ridiculous, to name a few. We’re thinking the kids’ Xbox 360 + Kinect will become a favorite for the whole family.

It is a ton of fun to play, I’m not even kidding. I’m not a video game person—at ALL—so I was really pleasantly surprised how much fun I had. Kyle and I were just saying we can’t wait for Christmas so that we can start playing all our new Kinect games. We spent the evening laughing at each other, competing, and looking forward to sharing this with our three kiddos.

Care to witness the embarrassment? Well, you’re in luck—we filmed it. I think this will be a good winter workout solution for this Southern girl stuck in the snow.

This will be part of our middle son’s motor skills therapy he needs. And it’ll be active fun for the whole family when we can’t make it to the sledding hill but we want to do more than watch a movie. We’re excited!
