For Easter, we got Namine a little dinosaur excavation kit. It just looked like a block of dirt, but there was a dinosaur inside.

Namine, like me, is a big fan of dinosaurs. I had one of these kits when I was a kid, and I don’t remember making much of a mess. Well, let me tell you, Namine made a mess.

Aside from the block of dirt, the kit also contained a couple little excavation tools: a chisel and a brush. Namine didn’t work her way through and dig out the dinosaurs all in one go; it took her a few days of chipping away dirt onto the living room floor.

When she did finally get through all the dirt, Namine found that there was not just one dinosaur trapped inside, but three. They are now proudly on display on her table.
