Wii Fit

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

We got Wii Fit and once again Nintendo put out another fun game for the Wii. The Wii Fit makes exercising fun! I was surprised that I broke a sweat on some of the exercises. I guess I knew that since the Wii told me I am fat. Here’s a video of Owen playing the soccer game.

White Sox Game vs. Tigers

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

Terri and I took her nephew’s to the White Sox game. They lost so it was lame, but we did get to see Ken Griffey Jr. I had two tickets on the 1st base line row 19. They were pretty close to Griffey. Since we had the boys and didn’t plan in advance we didn’t have four seats together so when people came we just kept moving up a row. Pretty soon we were in the 12th row or somewhere around there. I got some good pics and then we decided to walk around a bit. My uncle Jerry was there so we talked to him for awhile. Then we went to the top row and sat in the nose bleeds. Well, here are some pictures.

Lollapalooza 2008

Monday, August 11th, 2008

I posted pictures of Lollapalooza on flickr. It was a lot of fun. Some of my Highlights were Nine Inch Nails, Flogging Molly and G. Love. One of the shocking bad performances was Perry Farrel. He started out playing a half hour late and then it went downhill from there.

I also took a little video of the NIN concert and decided to test out the video feature of Flickr.

Friday: The Black Keys, Cat Power, The Raconteurs (partial), CSS (partial) and Radiohead.

We had a lot of fun and saw a lot of bands.
