After making beads and playing with Stuffties, my daughter moved on to playing one of the new games we picked up the other night, “Pokemon Channel” for the GameCube. It is a pretty easy game which (so far) mostly consists of watching short film “clips” of Pokemon delivering the news or playing a quiz show and buying cute things for your home from the “Squirtle Shopping Channel”. Both kids seem to like it.
The kids also played on Webkinz for a bit. We bought (with Kinzcash) the new studio application that lets the kids make short plays with backgrounds and actors. It is kind of like making a comic strip on the computer. You get to pick how many characters in the shot (1 or 2) and whether they will be far away or up close. You can change their expressions and have them do actions, like waving or jumping, as well as typing what you want them to say in word balloons. When you are done, you can save your work! Pretty neat.
When J. got home, we headed out to “Max and Erma’s” for a birthday celebration dinner. The kids love the icecream sundae bar!
A nice birthday all around…
