Turning off the Tv

Maggie had her 12 year old check up today. It was not terrible news but there were a few areas of concern. Number one was getting more exercise and watching less TV. This also applies to recreational computer playing. Maggie and I tend to only watch up to 3 hours of tv a day but we probably need to cut that back. I am not sure what to do in the evening that is more active. After working all day and working earlier in the day is watching tv or movies any worse than reading a book (from a physical fitness point of view) should we instead be dragging Peter to the Y with us again, riding the horses (even though it means we won't be home with him in the evening?) i need suggestions of what other families do in their spare time. We are thinking of getting rid of our dish in favor of just using netflix to save money as well.
