One of the things my parents picked up for Z. to do was these little toy eggs that you bust up with little plastic archaeological tools, to dig out the dinosaur bones hidden within.

She went for the triceratops, and gave me the stegosaurus.

The digging itself was a little tougher than expected, and a little more time-intensive than Z. planned for. I helped her out with hers, however, and she kept up like a trooper, coughing and all. I explained that this is what paleotheist does for a living; Z. noted that lemonruss wasn't as big as a dinosaur.

She insisted on wearing a dress today. And when that dress got dusty from the digging, she changed into another dress. I at least convinced her not to wear one of her nice velvety ones.

So, dig complete. I washed the bones when we were done, since I happen to have things for washing tiny plastic pieces around the house. It's how I roll. Hopefully we'll be able to assemble them this afternoon.

Z. adds, after I read out this post to her: "Christmas cat. Kira friends." No, I don't know why.

I maintain that I am as big as ovirapor and velociraptor, and as tough as allosaurus.

Dino Dig
Sorry it was so messy. I picked it because it was different. You must admit you don't dig for dinos everyday,nor after this would you want too. At least the toy ones. LOL!

Re: Dino Dig
Wasn't too messy, and my theory of the baking sheets worked out well.
