Bubbles, Bulbs, & Boots....

I've never known a baby or kid who didn't love bubbles.

My Mom got a few things of bubbles for Annabelle and on Sunday we spent some time outside trying them out. AB had a Wal*Mart bag full of different bubbles and bubble "tools." There was the "Miracle Bubble" Wand kit, the Bubble Bug, & the Super Wand...


She was most interested in the ginormous "Magic wand" (that was SUPPOSE to make bubbles inside of bubbles, but didn't)

and tasting the "Magic Bubble Solution"... I'm hoping she's not going to be a paste-eater in kindergarten. Ha...

The wind was fierce on Sunday, so the conditions weren't really right for optimum bubble making. It's always good to have a Daddy and a Grammy that will try to make it happen, though. And if you have a Daddy and a Grammy who will do whatever it takes to make you some bubbles, and the wind is blowing like crazy, then you better have a Pop to carry you around and chase the bubbles. AB enjoyed them, even if they did blow by too fast for me to even get many in our pictures!




FYI: These "bubble wands" (pictured below) make the biggest bubbles. They are at Wal*Mart for a DOLLAR!

Annabelle also enjoyed sitting on the flower beds at Grammy & Pop's. She loves to be outside!
I love this picture because those bulbs sprouting up behind her, came from Annabelle's Great-Great Grandmother. My Mom's Grandmother, "Mommy-Ann" dug some bulbs up from her yard in Missouri and gave them to Momma to plant in our yard. That was 28 years ago!
I love this, too....Check out the boots AB's Granny got her. RED water boots. So cute! They're a size or two big on her, but guess who wants to wear them all the time, even though she can't even walk in them?!?!? Ha!

We are loving being able to spend some time outside these days! I see many days this summer outside (with bubbles and red boots on, of course!).

Shoot. I'm that person that forgot to enter the giveaway. I'll do it right now, ma'am (:

I LOVE AB's new boots and the pictures of her with bubbles are so cute. Your momma is so good! A little bubble solution surely won't hurt Annabelle...it would have done Allie in long ago if so, because goodness knows she loves to drink her bath water :) Yummy!

Those boots are PRESH! My boys Grammie just bought his some bright red fire truck rainboots, they're several sizes too big, but he still insists on wearing them. It's hilarious watching them try to walk! Thanks for the heads up on the big bubble wands, we need to go pick some of those up!

Aren't you just loving the spring like days that we had last week? Looks like AB is enjoying them. When I read about AB it brings back so many memories of when Kaelyn was that age. I miss those days.
