Brunch, bubbles and buckets

We had Easter brunch with our friends from Into Ablivia on Sunday. 
In her kids' Easter baskets, Holly included washable colored bubbles despite a store employee's warning "it's messy." 

Um, messy hardly described it, and we were unprepared for the color-carnage that was about to unleash despite this note on the package:


The coloring from the bubbles got on everything: clothing, hair, faces, appendages.  It was a huge {albeit fun} mess.



Since the ink was e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e, it was just easier to let the kids play with soap and warm water buckets before running back indoors.  Which unexpectedly brought us to this:


"Brunch, bubbles and buckets."  Our new Easter tradition.

The carnage from yesterday's Color Wonder bubbles must have the execs laughing all the way to the bank! I hunted for those things, sold out virtually everywhere...at least we know we weren't alone with the splatters of green, purple and blue on their Sunday best!
