Anyways, right before the party kicked off, my sister remembered they didn't have any candles for the cake and dun-da-da-dun...Uncle Chad to the rescue! He made a quick trip to the Dollar Tree nearby and returned with not only 8 candles, but 96 candles(?) (enough for every birthday in the family for the whole year I guess?...kind of confused on why they would have so many in one box...anyways (?)) He also had a great Uncle moment while he was there and got an economy size bubble jug with a couple of the big bubble wands. You know, the ones that make like 50 bubbles every time you blow or wave them. It just so happened to be a slightly windy day which made the bubble wands even easier. It was bubble-mania outside! The girls loved it. He definitely got some super-uncle plus points for that one!
Okay, I'll be honest, we all had lots of fun with them. Bubbles are something that brings the kid out in everyone. Here's a few pics of the fun. Yay for pockets of air trapped in a thin layer of soap!
Taylor & her friend Ashley being kids... Chad & Kelly being kids too....
They had a way cooler picture than we did, but just as much fun I think!
