Tiny Bubbles


I finally broke down about bought a bubble machine. J loves his bubbles so much I was getting out of breath trying to keep up with the constant need for bubbles. The only problem is that it uses so much solution, more if it's windy. But, hey he loves it, what's a Mom to do? And really with all that bubble popping, just add water and you have an instant bath.


Along with the wonderful bubbles that can occupy an entire afternoon in the backyard, I found a few green bubbles popping out on the trees. We have a very late blooming tree in our yard that we planted last summer and I was getting nervous that it didn't make it through it's first winter. Upon closer inspection, I could see the beautiful green popping through. My favourite colour of green is what I call 'Spring' green. When all the leaves pop out and are new and fresh, that is my favourite. Midsummer when they are a deeper darker green, I start to get nervous because I know what is coming but it's the first green that really perks me up.

My kids love the bubble machine as well. I have to buy a new one though because we left ours out and it got ruined in a rain storm...

Enjoy the weather!

We bought that fantastic invention this year too. Kids were busy trying to ninja chop each and every bubble in half. Exhausted by dinner time - perfect!

i'm the same: it's almost as though the tree is squeezing the leaves out little holes... more and more leaf appears each day :o)

I love our bubble machine! I used to feel like I was going to hyperventilate when I had to blow on the wand.

We've had a weekend of bubbles here, too! My son has a Buzz Lightyear "ion blaster" that he can dip into the bubble stuff. It's a lifesaver!
