Have you ever stood inside of a bubble? I haven’t, but Isabelle did at her friend Allegra’s birthday party today.
We went to Explore & More, a hands-on museum in Gettysburg, for the party. There were lots of neat things to see and do in this small kids’ museum. But by far, the thing Isabelle seemed to enjoy the most was standing inside of a hula hoop that lifted up gradually to envelop her body in a soap bubble.
Isabelle stood on the platform by herself as little Allegra hoisted the hula hoop into the air. She did so with precision, which created a perfect bubble nearly every time she tried. Then, the girls stood side by side as Allegra’s father and grandfather made the bubble appear around them again and again and again.
Truth be told, I wanted to stand on the platform too. I wanted someone to hoist the hula hoop around me since I’ve never stood inside of a bubble before. But then I remembered, it’s a children’s museum and another child’s birthday party. If it were my kiddo’s birthday party, then I would’ve done it, but it didn’t seem like the right thing to do. So I stood on the periphery and watched, thinking about the next time I go to Explore & More. Next time I will have someone make a bubble around me.
