Bubbles = Kiddie Crack
My friend Lara sent me this photo earlier today from her daughter's birthday party last weekend. Lori and the boys attended while I did this. Apparently the kids had a lot of fun as you can see Alex and Josh in mid-joy over the presence of bubbles.
One of the many lessons learned in my short stint at being a dad is this: If you bust out a bottle of bubble solution and start creating bubbles with a wand, you turn any situation into an instant kid-party. I'm not sure what is so utterly amazing about popping soap bubbles but apparently it's all kids need to go totally ape-shit. I actually think you could keep blowing bubbles for hours and the enthusiasm level would not diminish. I have yet to make it past 15 minutes or so.
