Tonight was our family night. It was a little cold and rainy and dreary and half the family was still recovering from being sick all week - myself included. But we made the best of it. We were all well enough to go out for dinner (family night is always more enjoyable when I don't have to cook dinner and then clean up afterwards!). After dinner Gabrielle wanted to play games. We are a divided household where this is concerned because I LOVE board games but Ed is not a huge fan unless there is some serious competition happening. The compromise was to play Band Hero on the Wii.
It had been a long while since we have played the Wii and Band Hero. Getting everything ready took some time. Ed got out the equipment, dusted it all off and replaced the batteries in all the controllers while I got the girls ready for bed. Finally we were ready to jam.
Watching us play this game as a family has to be hilarious (listening to us play this game is probably a little painful for the ears however!). Even on the beginners mode it is a bit above the girls' capabilities. But they LOVE to sing and can get away with making up their own lyrics to whatever song Ed chooses to play. And they certainly LOVE banging away at the drums.
