Yesterday Anika found my old Palm from the late 1990s. She reminded me about my other late-great gadget, the Palm Tungsten. She used the color Palm while Ian played on the monochrome Palm. They shared great-grandma's chair again.
She happily showed Ian how to draw on the touch screen. Amazing to see the kids with these museum-pieces of technology. I remember the Palm Pilots as gifts, the big new breakthrough of those times. And now they are glorified sketch pads.
Then our Super Superbowl Party. Mom and Dad and Paul and Mila came over. We feasted on traditional Superbowl treats like Giovanni's Tasty Wings.
Then I served up Chlebicky, Czech sandwiches. Yes, our family likes anchovies.
Anika pulled out boxes of dress up.
Anika cheered for the colts because they were horses. She was so disappointed when the tide turned against them. Then she reflected on games. Someone must lose. And it's about having fun along the way.
We sure had fun.
We ended the evening with a rousing game of Jump Over the Couch. Ian perfected the head-first technique (onto a tall pile of pillows). Super-fun Superbowl. We can't wait for next year's game!
