Don’t Burst My Bubble

My plan worked! Or at least, I’m going to pretend is was my genius idea on Wednesday that lead to our current thaw and the chance to play out on the porch yesterday. Thank God for that porch y’all, because the yard is still 80% snow but the other 20% is mud and even though I’m trying to keep up my good attitude regarding my housekeeping responsibilities it would be madness to encourage a toddler and a dog to play in the dirt and then run through the house. MADNESS I TELL YOU.

We took advantage of the 50+ degree weather to try out Little Evan’s new bubble machine. I asked Twitter for suggestions and although everyone agreed the cheap kind tend to break down after a lot of use I only need it to work until the beginning of April, so for $11 I’m willing to buy another if need be.

Because really, this much fun is totally worth ten times that much.

Don’t even try to tell me that child needs a haircut. I’ll cut YOU.
I splurged for the fancy bubble solution (still only $3.99 for a giant jug) but I think it would work just as well with the homemade kind.

We hid this car on the porch for the winter and now it's like having a BRAND NEW TOY. Brilliant.

This picture has not been edited or retouched in any way. Holy ginger child, Batman!!

Portrait of a child who knows a cage when he sees it...even if it is full of bubbles.

I think the Navy should install bubble machines on all their submarines. It would certainly make them more fun. Doesn't E look like he's having fun?

Ok, now for a vote. Which picture do you think I should use on Little Evan’s birthday invitations?

#1 - Smiling child


#2 - Amazed at the bubbles child

Either way it has to be cropped so the proportions are opposite – portrait instead of landscape – so his face and the bubbles around his face are the most important part. I can’t decide which one I like. I AM, however, getting super duper excited about the party. It’s not going to be *quite* as epic as last year’s circus party but still pretty fun.

    Definitely smiling child. Also, *where* did you get your bubble machine/what kind is it? Because the one Mommy got for us? Big fail.

      Target! I think it’s made by Amazing Bubbles. I can’t find the exact one online but it’s basically just a little box with a dozen bubble wands that spin through the liquid and a fan blows the bubbles. Super simple, which is why it works so well.

  7. MKP says:

    GINGERRRRRRR. I like the amazed at the bubbles one best. Aside from E’s crankyface :P

  8. Denae says:

    Smiling Child. Love that shirt too, very appropriate.

  9. Laura says:

    I vote for #1: smiling child. So cute! Love the bubbles. I’ll have to look into that for Shelby.

  10. Awesome idea! I would go with photo #1 because he has such an awesome smile! Looks like we are going to Target to look for a bubble machine today!

  11. becca says:

    we have GOT to get a bubble machine; this looks like too much fun. and i like photo #1 also. he’s just too cute. and don’t even get me started on his hair. love.

  12. My vote is for face number one. But the bubbles are cuter in number two. I suppose the face is more important than the bubbles. But just barely.

  13. Amanda says:

    I love picture number 2! Bubble machines are the best things ever. I can’t tell you how many different ones we have laying around the house and they are all fantastic!

  14. molly says:

    It’s like a heat wave! It’s in the 70’s here :)


  15. I love them both, I can’t decide.

  16. Londonmum says:

    love the smile one but the other one could be really cool depending on what you write on the invitation. If it is something like “Surprise!!!! it’s my birthday!!” then it could be fun. He is just adorable in both.

  17. Alana says:

    First off he is gorgeous!
    Secondly I love the first picture. He looks so sweet and inncocent.
    Can’t wait to see what you come up with for the party! xo

  18. LCW says:

    I vote picture #2. Love that smile.

  19. Krista T says:

    I vote smiling child. How could anyone NOT come to his party with him staring into their eyes and smiling so sweetly? :)

  20. Anna says:

    Smiling Evan for sure. What a cutie.

  21. raincheckmom says:

    I like #1 the best. But he’s adorable in both….

  22. Sarah-Anne says:

    i totally go for smiling beheh. too cute!

  23. Lisa says:

    I vote for #1 although they are both cute!

  24. Jen F (from Robinson) says:

    #1! I think he looks a lot like you in that one.

  25. Megan says:

    I vote for #2. There are more bubbles around his face in that one. You have years of smiling face photos ahead of you. These years when they are truly amazed at things are so short. :)

    I think the second picture is so precious. He’s a beautiful child but the wonderment on his face is priceless!
