The kids and I saw a fantastic bubble show at the science museum today. It called itself "unbubblelievable" and it really was super. It starred Jano Yang, a "soap bubble artist" who has performed around the world and holds a number of Guinness World Records relating to bubbles. You can click here to watch a short clip of his artistry.
The kids were totally captivated--even Izzy seemed interested. At one point, Yang asked for a volunteer from the audience--specifically, "a boy with a nice, big smile." Oscar, who volunteered very eagerly, and who has just such a smile, was chosen. He was beyond thrilled.
Oscar was a big hit with the audience. Jano Yang put a giant bubble around him, then said he'd find Oscar "a pretty girl" to join him onstage:
Oscar and the pretty girl were each given a huge bottle of bubbles for participating in the show...
The boys were so inspired by the performance that they put on a bubble show of their own Downtown while we waited for our bus. When we got home, they blew bubbles in front of the house, attracting a sizable group of kids from the neighborhood for a big bubble blowout.
