Bubbles galore!

This weekend was busy...but great! Hailey had her first sleepover! Her friend, Lubbock, from playgroup spent the night on Saturday while his parents went to a concert. Hailey was ecstatic to have her friend over and Lubbock was so good! I was uber-impressed that he cleaned up after himself by nicely placing his empty milk cup on the kitchen counter. These two have to hang out more often!

And for even more fun, our friends the Gonzalez's came over for a visit. Hailey absolutely loves their little guy, Eric. I'm convinced he will be her future boyfriend. Like way, way in the future.

And to top it all off, we found the PERFECT bubble machine. The quest started after Hailey's birthday. We got her the Fisher Price Bubble Mower. It was very cute, but unfortunately it didn't work. All it did was ooze sticky bubble solution. So we returned it.

Next we got the Little Tikes Bubble Bellies. Unbelievably, this one didn't work either! And this one didn't even ooze anything - it just ran and ran.
I was just about to give up on the automatic bubble blowing industry entirely when I saw a cool looking machine at Dominick's grocery store. It's called the Billion Bubbles Bubble Fountain. I couldn't even find it online, but it's kind of like this one except on mine the bubbles come out of four holes on the top.

We opened it up yesterday and to our surprise it works perfectly!
It blows thousands of bubbles a minute just like the package promised.
Even the dog liked it!
