Happiness is: a bubble party

On Easter Sunday, after all the excitement of our morning egg hunt and family lunch, all four of us fell into delicious afternoon naps. Sophie woke first, so I crept into her room, scooped her out of the crib and carried her outside. Just the two of us. The neighborhood was quiet.

She watched the trees sway in the breeze and grazed the grass with little fingers. I sat beside her, content and grateful.

Then, ever so gradually, kids, parents, grandparents started to fill our little cul-de-sac. I love this about our street. We are surrounded by friends.

Before long, a bubble machine made its way into our yard and chaos broke loose.

Wonderful, giddy chaos.
