Ruby and Jude are understandably excited about the beginning of summer vacation. Among our first-summer-weekend celebrations, I let them watch more than the usual share of Netflix videos (mostly "Batman: The Brave and the Bold"), plus I took them to Baskin-Robbins for ice cream and CiCi's Pizza for the pizza buffet and video games and that toy-grabbing claw thing (which actually does let you win a prize fairly often).
Just before summer vacation, the kids and I found some bubble soap while I was cleaning out the garage, and I snapped some photos of them chasing bubbles in the front yard. I discovered it's not easy to take photos and blow bubbles at the same time.
