Here is my discovery for the week. I signed my children up for a gym class at Gymboree a couple of weeks ago. During our 1st session, I noticed that the bubbles they used were amazingly long lasting. So, I decided to buy some before we left. The silly things cost $6 a bottle (which included the really cool bubble blowing thingy). I thought that was insanely outrageous, but decided to buy them anyway. Girls, lemme tell you what. Those are the BEST bubbles ever. They last a lot longer than most bubbles do (I even had some that sat on my concrete driveway for a while, which made for a whole new "stomp the bubble" game). You can even catch them with your hands. The bubble blowing wand thingy is pretty cool, too. Makes about 1000 bubbles at a time. The kids loved them and it was well worth the 6 bucks I spent on them. Bonus - the bubbles are sugary, so if one happens to get eaten, it won't taste like gross soap.
It's finally spring. Get out and blow some bubbles. :)
