Mr. Bubble’s 50th Birthday was a Hit!

At 7am the bubbles started.

Before I had showered and slipped into my suit, the Fox 9 Morning news crew was already broadcasting bloggers and their kids playing in a huge “bath” of bubbles, up to their waists and armed with bottles of Mr. Bubble Foam Soap.


While Jackson and I missed the first live broadcast of Mr. Bubble’s 50th Birthday Bash, we were in the bubble pit for the next shot, throwing bubbles and applying bubble beards to Fox 9 News contributor, Todd Walker and Mr. Bubble President, Frank Klisanich.

Jackson had the time of his life playing with his new blogging buddies, Molly’s boys from The Snyder 5. It was bubble heaven!

“This is the funnest day of my life!” Jackson shouted to me as he and his friends covered themselves and each other in Mr. Bubble Foam Soap.

Mr. Bubble himself was in the house of course — celebrating his big 5-0! He bathed in bubbles, danced with party goers, enjoyed his cake, and even surfed on the Water Park of America’s surf simulator, FlowRider.

Finally, when all the bubbles were cleaned up, Jackson and I rode the slides again, (I must say, I LOVE the Water Park of America!) and then headed over to Nickelodeon Universe to hit some of their fabulous rides before our late night flight home.

(Thanks so much to Jacob Gibb, the official photographer at the event for taking this shot with my camera.)

By the time we arrived back in Vancouver, it was 12:30amPT/2:30amCT. Jackson had been awake for almost twenty hours, but when we walked in our house, he insisted on pulling out our new Mr. Bubble products and having a bath!

As he soaked in his Mr. Bubble bath at 1am, Jackson sighed, “Ahhhh… next to today’s party, this is the best bubble bath I have ever had in my life!”

    My kids had so much fun hanging out with Jackson…and I’d say the same for having time to hang with you. Glad to hear you made it home safely and hope we find a way to see you all again soon.

      Yes – hopefully we will all end up on another trip together! Our boys were a great match for each other — and I think you and I could talk for three days straight! :)

    Oh my goodness! That looks like so much fun. Too bad I couldn’t have been there with my 10 year old boy. He would have loved to hang with Jackson and get all messy…I mean clean!

    Janice- it was so great to spend time with you and meet Jackson! What a handsome boy! Your photos are wonderful!

    I have to ask- what rides did you two hit at Nickelodeon Universe? I thought of Jackson when I saw the Airbender ride and the Ghostly Gangplank…
