Dancing with Dweebs

My brother Jon got a Nintendo Wii for his birthday, which happened to be the day after Thanksgiving this year. He got it a few days early, though. Therefore, on Thanksgiving night, traditionally spent playing board games, we played Wii games instead.

A game called Dancing with Dweebs was the hit of the evening.

Here are the photos to prove that we were, indeed, dancing dweebs.

Mom, Rachael and me....this was the oh-so-lovely butt-slap move.

Me, Rachael and Joel. Looking at this picture helps me realize what I was doing wrong on this move. (I stunk at this game, by the way.)
After five games or so, you really work up a sweat. This picture makes me laugh because the three of us are like low impact, medium impact, and crazy-high impact demonstrators on an aerobics show. (I really didn't know I could lift my leg quite so high.) At least I was actually getting into the game. More than Mr. Joel was, anyway.
See? I followed the little stick figure guy exactly. Joel half-heartedly moved his remotes around. At least I can be sure I burned more calories than he did. Because that is definitely what matters. Not the fact that he still beat me with his miniscule little moves. Cheater.
Nate and Rachael. It's much more fun to watch people play in real life...the pictures don't quite do it justice. It's not Dance Dance Revolution, but it works.
I have never had such sore arms, even days later, but we sure had a blast!

  1. Looks like fun. We have Dance Dance Revolution and just love doing it as a family. I definitely think you got the better workout.

  2. What a blast! We got a Wii last year, and after doing just some of the sports games for 1/2 an hour, I was so painfully sore for the next two days it was nuts!

  6. That was entertaining. I stink at stuff like that, but it would probably be lots of fun. Maybe someday we'll get a WII, but they are so pricy, and then you have to spend tons on games too.

  14. I want the wii fit so bad! I think I would love this dance game.. I am addicted to DDR! LOOKS like fun. My husband always jokes about recording my friends and I while we play and then putting it on you tube! I would kill him because we look like the biggest DORKS ever! But I so love to play it. DDR is my friday morning workout.

  21. I love the wii. We don't have one - yet - but we play when we're down staying at my sis-in-laws place. As much fun as it is to play the games, it's almost as much fun to watch others play them. Looks like you guys had fun!!
