She is 1...
We ate New York, Chicago, and Seattle style hot dogs.
We had a bubble party...lots and lots of bubble blowing.
I made nine gallons of bubble solution.
It was poured into a kiddy pool and the kids went to town.
They used tennis rackets, a hula hoop, and bubble wands of all shapes and sizes.
Here is the bubble recipe...it's easy peasy:
1 24 ounce bottle Dawn dish soap
1 and 1/2 cups corn syrup
3 gallons water
Mix, let sit for 2 days, then blow bubbles!
The Dawn dish soap is perfect because it already has glycerin in it and the corn syrup is the special secret. The glycerin and the corn syrup help the bubbles hold together and allow you to make giant bubbles with a hula hoop.
After the kids were done with blowing bubbles, a make shift slip and slide was created.
The kids slid and slid until all were soaked and enormously happy.
We then went inside to eat banana and caramel cupcakes.
Gifts were opened and naps were taken.
Kiddies took home jars of the bubble solution and homemade copper bubble wands.
It was good...
very, very good.
