This area was cutting edge when my children were small. We didn't have a PC in our house when my son was small let alone the internet. Life changed by leaps and bounds when my kids were in elementary school, with PCs, internet, cell phones. Gaming dramatically changed from the days of Atari. I have to say though when my DS sent me an email a few months back with his picture attached, silly figment images around his face, well it was a warm and fuzzy from days gone bye.
I hold the same fond memories for the after ride area of SSE when my kids were small.
