enjoying the final days of summer {one bubble at a time}

I participated in this #JuicyFruitFunSide sponsored campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.

With one more weekend left, it’s time to cram in some final dog-days-of-summer activities!  This Labor Day weekend, cannonball into the pool, grill big fat steaks and fill up the water balloons — one last hoorah!  Stock the house with Juicy Fruit bubblegum, the best bubble-blowing gum around… this stuff seriously reminds me of being a kid!

We live in the Southern California desert, so we’re happy to see summer end.  It’s hard to be outside here in the summer unless you’re in the pool or running through the sprinkler, so we are excited for fall… but I know a lot of you are mourning the loss of the sunny season.  More reason to continue vicariously enjoying childhood through your children this week.  A favorite activity this summer for us when trapped at home has been water balloons.  I can’t even explain HOW many water balloons we’ve been through these past few months!

water balloon baseball in_the_know_momDo you remember when you first learned to blow a bubble?  My daughter only recently began to be able to blow decent bubbles.  She’s 7.  She still can’t always get one going, but chewing big wads of Juicy Fruit seem to help her along… what a great childhood memory for us all!  Of course she finally gets a good one going and mine is all crooked! haha <3

I think my daughter’s favorite part of the bubble-blowing contest is popping mine, that little cheater! She is lucky she’s so cute.

    I used to love blowing bubbles! I can’t think of the last time I did! I’ll have to pick up some Juicy Fruit & see if I can impress the kiddos with my skills!

    My girls both really love blowing bubbles too! When I was a teacher we had bubble gum on the last day of school……and I sat the kids in two rows. One boy spit his gum into the hair of the girl in front of him. I am still nervous about kids blowing big bubbles and it has been almost 10 years!
