...The Kart Came First

It's true. Mario Kart came even before my first child. Picture this: Sterile hospital room; I'm rocking in the rocking chair trying not to focus on the pain while sucking on a red Popsicle. (How do you know I know for sure it was a RED Popsicle? Well simply because it is the only one worth eating-That is until years later when I discovered Banana!! Wink) There is the noise from the monitors and the swooshing of zooming of Mario Kart. Yep Mario Kart.
My Technogeek of a Hub (no worries its a term of endearment around here) had brought the N64. He and my sister (now that I think about it it was BOTH my sisters playing!) were duking it out on the race tracks while I breathed through the contractions. Ohhh the memories!

We just got Mario Kart for the Wii. (Hence the flashback!) It was sooooo much fun! We all played and raced. After all a Family that plays Kart together stays together! HAHA
The game allows you to play online against your friends and the Hub had been smack talking to our great friends back in Montana. (who were also getting the game the day it came out.) I could hear our friends screaming and smack talking in my head right along side my Hub doing the same! It always makes me laugh to see how into the games they get!
For those of you with a Wii I highly recommend Mario Kart! Perhaps it will bring your family together as much as it has ours! *Laughs*

That is awesome that you were playing in the hospital. I could totally see me and my family doing something like that. I haven't tried the wii mariokart yet. We downloaded the N64 version months ago and have loved it, so I am sure we'll love the new one too!

I recently got a wii and finally hooked it up. I'm so dduuuhhhmmmbb when it comes to gaming systems, though. I saw a commercial on TV for Mario Kart for Wii and it does look fun.

I've got my fingers crossed that I get a Wii for Mother's day!
