Every year for the last 7 years we've celebrated the Superbowl with the same group of people - our camping friends. We get together, eat good camping food, plan this year's camping trips, and then we leave to put our kids to bed. Well, I mean, I'm sure some people actually stay and watch the game, but I could care less. Yes, even about the commercials. Plus, we really do have to get the kids to bed.
I've told you the last few years why the Superbowl is important to us - it's the day we first met the kid's birth parents, the day we learned that after so many years, we were finally going to be parents. But it was at this same party that we got to finally say out loud what we'd wanted to say for so long. So, the fact that we're still celebrating this day with many of the same people, well, it makes it even more special for me.
Happy Superbowl, bloggy friends. While you're eating good food, watching (hopefully) hilarious commercials, and some (I don't know an appropriate descriptor) football, raise a glass (or a chip) to the kid and his birth family. That's what we'll be doing.
Today's Lesson: Even us non-football people can find something celebratory about the Superbowl.
