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.

 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.

Frisco's Wassail Days

Friends, 
I'm so excited to bring you the details of this family event in Frisco, Colorado! Nothing says Christmas like getting up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains and celebrating the holidays nestled in a cozy town with your closest friends and family. Fresh snow. Lighted trees. Sleigh rides. Visits with Santa.
And it all starts with the Santa Dash for Cash - a 1K "fun run" in which all participants must wear Santa gear! The run is TOMORROW and when you register at www.wassaildays.com you will receive a Frisco Santa shirt, a Santa hat and at the end of the run you will receive a stocking full of goodies including Wassail Cash (the official currency of Wassail Days that can be used at local restaurants and retailers) and a FREE pass for a ½ hour of tubing at the Frisco Adventure Park Tubing Hill.

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

C'est la Vie: The Men In Our Lives Part 3

Today's suggestions really hit two sides of the same coin. I was thinking about gifts for the "do it yourself" dad. If you're married to him (or lived with a dad like this growing up), you know what I mean. He loves a project whether it's in the house, out in the yard, or in the garage (ie. cars).

But that got me thinking, sometimes there is nothing better than a "do it yourself" gift. Something straight from the heart and made by little, loving hands. So, here are two lists: one for your man to "do" and the other for you and the kids to make. I think you'll find something that's a perfect fit!
