Well, the bubble machine was a hit. As expected, Ellie loved it. But not just loved it, she LOVED it. In fact, when I look at the picture below, all I can think of is the conversation Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen had at the playground in Knocked Up. Basically, "kids go apeshit over bubbles."
"I wish I liked anything as much as my kids like bubbles."
It is so much fun to watch Ellie be so delighted over something so simple. Needless to say, I returned to Target ASAP to stock up on THE BIG BOTTLE of clearance bubble solution. I see hours of bubbly joy in our future!
