Bubble Bath Time

Around the Danz house, bath time is bubble time...at least when Daddy gives the baths.


The trick to maximize bubble creation is to violently swirl the water in one direction near the spout while the tub fills. This creates extra bubbles in addition to those made by the spout, moves bubble to the back of the tub where they build up and keeps the water under the spout from becoming diluted of precious bubble making goodness.

I know what you were thinking, I wish Don would post some more videos of his kids playing soccer. I aim to please, and so here is Will who also got some kicks in yesterday while at his big brother's soccer practice. Oh, and if you don' t like the football club music from the two prior videos, don't worry, this is more mainstream...but still not exactly on the American airwaves, at least not yet.

Will had a little bit tougher time than at home since he had to deal with shoes, turf and distractions all around. But, considering he's only been walking about a week and half, I think he's doing incredibly well. I'm amazed at his desire to kick the ball. You can't hear it, but he laughs or cackles many of the times he kicks the ball.

The music is Heart Full of Pride by the Swedish band Perkele. [Update: I checked out some more music by Perkele and let's just say that Heart Full of Pride is the only song of their's that interests me.]

After soccer practice today, I filmed Drew dribbling and scoring some wicked goals.

Drew has improved quite a lot from just a year ago.

The music, There's Only One United, is a song of the Manchester United Red Devils.

ME: Hello, my name is Don.
YOU: Hello, Don.
ME: I'm addicted to European soccer...sorry, European football club music.

So, I went looking for some background music for Will's debut soccer video and did a Google search for "soccer music" not realizing what I would find. Wow! A click here, a click there, and the next thing you know, I'm hooked. Sure, it's not high brow, but it is high energy. I'm definitely going to make a workout playlist (I was going to say mix tape, I'm so old) from my downloads.

Anyway, this is Will at 13 months. He's only been taking serious unassisted steps for about two weeks and truly walking for one but he wants to kick the purple ball (play soccer) just like his big brother. We've been trying to get as much video of Will's drunken sailor stage as possible...it's already starting to fade. They grow up so fast.

The music, Stand Up for the Champions, is a song of the Arsenal Gunners.

A video of Drew from June of him eating ice cream and shivering. It's the cutest thing!

Geek note: the video was a little washed out due to the backlighting coming from the window. I've increased the brightness and the contract in an attempt to balance things out. The window is overexposed, but Drew looks better.

As always, inferior YouTube version after the jump.

712-will-in-car.jpgLast week Mary, Drew, Will, Ma, Pa and Aunt Catherine visited Aunt Mary and Uncle Joe, cousin Kathy and son Nicholas, and friends P.J., Vickie and son Patrick in St. Louis, Missouri and Auntie Annie in Springfield, Illinois.

Will didn't care much for the long car ride but did find some time to catch some Z's.


Drew kept himself busy with a number of activities and, without any prompting, wrote his name along with a smiley face on his Magna Doodle which he proudly showed off.


When traveling with Ma and Pa, before even leaving the neighborhood, Drew will ask if they can put a movie on the DVD player. Sometime along the trip, Catherine noticed Drew was watching a movie but wasn't wearing his headphones...Drew was giving Baby Bear a turn with the "earmuffs."


Auntie Annie is still pretty spry for 95 and the boys and her got along great.


Drew, Will and Nicholas hit it off immediately and had a great time playing together.


Cousin Kathy was a favorite with Will.
