    Bubbles

    I told DH what I wanted for my birthday, but I told him I also wanted to have a surprise to unwrap on the actual day. It turns out we were camping on the beach on my birthday and he did surprise me. He got me a bubble shooter. I had a ball shooting bubbles into the tress. After a few minutes we could hear the children in the other camps yelling about the bubbles.

    The grass was wet so when they landed they didn't pop right away.

    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I love bubbles, That would be a perfect gift for me for sure. Happy Birthday, I think the best gift you have is your hubby for thinking outside the box.

    Happy Birthday. When the Grandkids were little I always had bubble juice. I saved the bottles with the wands and refilled them. I loved blowing bubbles too. Love the colors the would appear.

    Sometimes when you need to relax you have to play.

    Wonderful pics and Happy Birthday. Thank you for reminding me about bubbles. I used to bring a jar over to our cottage and blow bubbles from the deck. Haven't remembered in several years but you can be certain that I will now!

    That is so sweet. Its nice to still have people understand simple is sometimes the best and that we all still have a little kid inside.
