Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  This year I did things a little different.  There was no basket full of chocolate and candy to be had in our house...And instead of an egg hunt, there was a treasure hunt!

Boog had his Easter basket and with it was three envelopes, each with a picture clue for his treasures.  I saved the last one for the toy I knew he really wanted.

The envelopes were numbered and he had to open them in the right order as well as tell me what letter each picture started with.

His basket had one hollow chocolate bunny, some regular goldfish cracker snack packs, some graham cracker goldfish snack packs and some packs of fruit snacks.  His treasures were a Transformers RescueBots Memory game, a Heat Wave expansion for his Beam Box game system and last but not least:

Transformers RescueBots Blades transforming figure.  This is the toy he's been asking me for for over a month.  So he was super excited when he found it and kept jumping up and down.  He said they're going to snuggle together at bedtime tonight lol.

Really Octonauts?

Things that make me say hmmm from the Octonauts...there are a few of them.  Have you seen the show?  No?  Well it's not a bad show.  It teaches compassion, learning about sea creatures and it's generally a fun show.

Some things from the show that I don't understand:

1. How is it that an octopus, polar bear, cat, dog, rabbit, penquin are all the same size?
2. Do any of the others have family, other than Professor Inkwell, Kwazi and Peso?  So far we've met Peso's mother and brother, Kwazi's grandfather and Professor Inkwell's cousin.  No one else's family is mentioned.
3. How did all these critters meet and someone not try to eat one of the others?
4. Who's funding this little operation of theirs?
5. How are Tweek's new gadgets and parts delivered?  I've never seen the FedEx guy show up in their Octopod.

And while we're on the topic of things that make you go hmmm from the world of kids cartoons, let's go with Bubble Guppies, aka little mermaid children:

1. Where are their parents?
2. How does an airplane fly in WATER?
3. They don't have enough creatures under the sea that they had to create a Bubble Puppy for the kids to have as a pet?
4. Do the kids have homes, or is it like boarding school?

What about Max and Ruby, bunnies?

1. Where are THEIR parents?
2. Who the hell left Ruby in charge?  She's kind of a snotty brat.  Just saying.
3. Why does gramma come visit and then LEAVE them home alone again?

That's all I've got right now, but feel free to add some of your own...
