...on second thought, don't bother. You won't guess.
It was a box...
...and in the box was this...cube. Two black garbage bags and a whole lotta packing tape wrapped around something...
Bobo! Bobo's been living in Utah for awhile. (Not really living. Bobo's not real.)
Bobo* was given to us when Little Boy visited the hospital last December. (He's fine now. He had a stomach virus and got super dehydrated. We were only there for a day and a half.) It was almost Christmas, so I guess people were being extra generous?
Anyway, we were in Utah, visiting Little Boy's grandparents. And we couldn't bring Bobo back home on the plane. So The Grandparents let Bobo stay over for a bit.
Bobo also inspired the stuffed-animal drive that my mom and I had for the local hospital last month. Bobo's big, and probably pretty expensive. I wanted to pay it forward. We'll be having another drive in a few months.
Welcome home, Bobes.
*We named Bobo after King Juan el Bobo, who was a character on an episode of Dora that was on at the hospital. Isaac, who speaks better Spanish than I do, says that "bobo" means "silly."

I just posted on my homeschool blog, which means that I wouldn't ordinarily make a post here tonight. But something came up over there that I think I should mention here, too.

Play time! We had a sunny-ish day (not today--this was a couple weeks ago), so Little Boy and I headed to the playground.
He's obsessed with slides. They're not as scary as swings.
So Little Boy got some energy out...
...and I got to chill out. Good day.

I didn't take very many pictures of Easter this year. But I have a million pictures of the Easter eggs that we dyed, so...I'm inflicting them on you. Ha ha!
Anyways, every year I try to do something different with our Easter eggs. One year we did rubber bands, and we've done crayons...stuff like that. So this year, the first thing I came up with was natural dyes*--and, being the lazy girl that I am, I just went with it. Good thing it worked out, huh?
This isn't the greatest photo, but it's decent enough to show the colors that we ended up with. (I was kind of afraid we'd just end up with different shades of brown.) The orange-y colors were a bit orangier in real life, and the spinach eggs were a nice gray-green that doesn't really come out in the photo. Oh, and the egg in the upper right corner says "dandelion petals." Kinda hard to read that one.
Pretty, right? We got a way wider range of color than I thought we would. They were a bit more work than regular Easter eggs, and I don't think I'll do them again for a few years, but I loved how they turned out.
* I don't have anything against regular Easter egg or food dyes. Well, maybe a little. But really, I just wanted to do something different this year.
