easter eggs.


 sorry to all my friends for taking a break that long ...for those whom I need to catch up with their recent posts I promise  you will see me very soon ..smiling and commenting on each of them ...please bear with those smiles as it always when you are little guilty you smile more to be SURE ..
  (this post was written two weeks back but dint get time to publish..)
... Its been long ..work n home kept me busy ..sometimes its better to get break from blogging I guess ..there is more stuff to write and discuss then. sometime back we  had Easter holidays..kids were at home for a week..lot of noise and friends around.
my younger son who's five years old was determined to go for Easter hunt next morning ...so my husband got some (toy)eggs and kept them in lawn for kids to hunt and have some fun ..this is the first time we did probably as the kids in school discuss among themselves,,,so jus for the sake of  fun we did...

two eggs among them were different ..they were supposed to be kept in water for hatching ..it would be eight hours for dinosaurs to come out and see them grow...
this was something new to me ...so  my very intelligent hubby ;p took  glass kettle filled with water and he placed it on the kitchen counter for everyone to see the hatching.



..I was little surprised when I got up next morning..little dinosaurs showing up from the eggs,,, phew,, shuck..
can't see those ..I took the kettle and kept it on the side table in the family room ..but soon it came back to kitchen.
but its kinda amazing thing.. to make toys looks real...
we took them out next day from the kettle..boys were very happy ..Cody (orange) Sparky (green) names given to them  ..they were blessed ones to come out of those huge eggs... ..
I touched and felt like something slippery and wet ..


but what is this ...with time they are too small ..all water evaporated from giant size they are miniatures now...

 

 ... sometimes its fun to be a kid again :)

Am sure this egg hunting and hatching was great fun! We had got a similar egg for our kid sometime back, and it was simply amazing and fun to see the egg hatch. Whenever we would pass it, we all stopped by to watch its progress. Amazing toys our kids have now-a-days!
