Bubbles!

Every time I hear the word "bubbles" exclaimed, I involuntarily visualize that silly fish in the tank of a dentist's office from the block buster cartoon movie, "Finding Nemo." He loved those bubbles, and really, who doesn't? Bubbles are synonymous with happiness and childhood, whimsy and fantasy. But there is a science to bubbles too. Most of us don't think about that part, but that's about to change.

Thanks to The Children's Museum of Denver, many children will see the joy of bubbles in a new light. The Bubbles exhibit opened May 15, and I was able to experience it with our family at a private showing with Mile High Mamas last week. The museum makes the most of every square inch of space and the Bubbles room was no exception. Kids first transform themselves into mini-scientists complete with white jackets and safety glasses. Each station around the room offers a different facet of exploration into how bubbles are made, what they can do, and the sizes and forms they can take.

how big their bubbles get!













 Little scientists have a blast exploring the world of bubbles!



 Bubbles drop from the ceiling! WOW!












 I nicknamed this the "bubble elevator" - bubbles go up, kids stay put.



Giant bubble "wands" create the challenge of manipulating bubbles... how big will it get? 












Of course, there are plenty of other reasons to visit The Children's Museum. Just check out there calendar HERE. And don't forget that the first Tuesday of every month is a free admission from 4-8pm thanks to Target.

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic. "Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you. 16  Preserve me, O God, for in you I  take refuge. 2  I say to the  Lord , “You are my Lord;      I have no good apart from you.” 3  As for  the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,      in whom is all my delight. 4  The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;      their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out      or  take their names on my lips. 5  The  Lord  is  my chosen portion and my  cup;      you hold my  lot. 6  The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;      indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7  I bless the  Lord  who  gives me counsel;      in  the night also my  heart instructs me. 8  I have  set the  Lord  always before me;      because he is at my  right hand, I shall not be  shaken. 9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my  whole being rejoices;      my
