Bubbles With Emma and Maggie

Bubbles With Emma and Maggie

The other day was a great work day, everything ran super smooth and the chimps cooperated with us when it was time to come inside, we got done with all the norms really early and had time to focus on various tasks that needed done. In between tasks I noticed Emma quietly observing from the play house window in the kitchen. I told myself to take a moment and give her a little attention. I grabbed a bubble bottle and made my way over towards the mesh. As soon as bubbles started floating her way her mouth was wide open trying unsuccessfully to catch them . Every now and then a bubble would make it across the barrier, catching her off guard, and then it would hit her arm or nose and alarm her. She would then always lick the landing sight, I don’t imagine bubbles taste too good, but hey, it made Emma happy. Maggie came to join all of the bubble excitement. She plopped down next to Emma, laying on her back with her belly up, looking upside-down at me. Maggie constantly cracks me up! I initiated the bubble blowing once again and both mouths were open wide hoping to catch one. Maggie was squinting her eyes, all the bubbles kept on popping on the mesh and raining down on her. I blew one more stick of bubbles and had to get back on task. However, I could have stayed there all night blowing bubbles for these two silly girls. ~ Shelby G., Intern
