For our float in this year's Ocracoke Island July 4th parade we purchased a bubble machine. Of course, we had to test it out the day before the parade. The perfect opportunity arose when Lou Ann's two granddaughters walked into the yard (they were visiting and staying in the rental cottage across the lane).
They had a grand time chasing bubbles and trying to catch them. It's nice to know that children still enjoy simple pleasures.
