Howdy, y'all!  It's your long lost friend Sarah here, dropping in to say hello and tell you about all of the fun that the Baum squad had on Saturday.

On Saturday morning while C was napping, Lillian seemed to be going a little stir crazy.  We had a store credit to Learning Express, so I decided to let Lills pick out a toy or two.  I have a serious love/hate relationship with this store: I love it because it is SO cute and has both normal toys as well as a lot of unique toys that you wouldn't find at the large toy store chains.  I hate it because I want to buy everything in there.  Lilly was in heaven, and we settled on a Melissa & Doug cutting wooden play food set as well as a Melissa & Doug baby doll feeding set for Baby Grace.  I was pretty proud of us for spending the exact amount of our store credit (actually we got a penny back, you're welcome Dan) so I was trying to hurry both of us out the door before we could do any more damage when I saw a cute little display outside.  They had set up a huge bucket full of homemade bubbles and wrote the recipe on the outside, and then they had huge bubble wands for the kids to play with (another reason I love that place - they always have fun interactive displays for the kids!!!).  That technique worked on the Baums because mama snapped a pic of the recipe and marched back inside and bought one of the wands.  I may or  may not also be going back for even more wands on my lunch break one day this week so that more than one person can play bubbles.  Sorry not sorry, Dan.

Anyway, the BEST BUBBLES EVER recipe is as follows:

12 cups water
3 cups liquid soap
3/4 cup light corn syrup

Easiest ever!  I will disclaim here that the type of soap you use definitely matters.  Dan made bubbles before using the above recipe and used Mrs. Meyers dish soap, which is what we use here.  I didn't know he'd used the exact same recipe but had a feeling that the type of soap was what was causing the bubbles to not be quite as awesome, so I stopped and grabbed a big thing of Dawn and the bubbles were the best ever.  I also cut the recipe in half because it made a ton of bubbles.  Either way, it was really easy and everyone enjoyed the fun.  Lilly had a blast, Craft was cackling at L and the bubbles and Layla was chasing and trying to eat them.  We'll definitely be making the BEST BUBBLES EVER to play with again!  I should probably apologize for my horrible photography skills, but Lills was so cute playing in the bubbles that I didn't even think about the shade cramping my photo style.  SBI!

Having a blast watching big sister!
I can't leave without giving you a hint of things to come on the blog this week. Stay tuned, because you definitely won't want to miss this post!

Happy Monday, friends!


  1. Love it! Bubbles are always so much fun & even better when they can entertain themselves :-)
