Bubbles Before Bed

      Since there is a Chick-fil-A opening today, and John has been coordinating that opening, we are not getting to see much of him this week.  Good thing we got to hang out in Canada last week.  Last night, John said, "I will get to reacquaint myself with our children this weekend."  And I am looking forward to that.  Though, last night, we did get to meet him for dinner, and the girls mauled him.  So much love.  But we came home, and I was facing bedtime by myself again and decided to make the most of it.  I pulled out bubbles.
      Lily was beside herself with delight, Bella loved trying to eat the grass, and it was a great way to enjoy a milder evening before tucking everyone in.  I decided to "Embrace the Camera" and get into a few of the shots myself.  I do want the girls to know that I played with them.  And if we have to take pictures to prove that, so be it.


My sweet girls who I can never get looking at the camera and smiling at the same time.  ♥

Bella ended up loving the bubbles too, and I don't blame her.  They are sort of magical - the way they reflect light and float in ways you don't expect.  I found myself a little transfixed as well.  Lily was quite intent on popping them all.  Which is also a lot of fun.

We will be very ready to have John back in action, but it is nice to know what good, clean, fun bubbles are.  Because, really, we all need more good-clean-fun things in our life.
