Crazy H

Althought this weekend was tiring (When isn't it when one's a parent?), we had a good time. On Saturday Meg and Henry went to a bridal shower and I went to the corresponding stag party across town. Both were for Meg's brother and future sister-in-law. We had a good time. I'd never been to a stag party before and based on this experience think they are a good idea. It definitely fits a family man's schedule a lot better and allows all family members to give a male member of the family a good time.

Here are some good pictures and videos Meg and I have taken recently of Henry.

I'm not sure what he's up to in this video, but it's funny and he didn't need a changing right afterwards.

During meal times Henry likes to work "product" a.k.a. food into his hair.

He's getting into more dangerous places these days. Here's some evidence. If I could predict the lottery like I can predict him hurting himself I'd be a rich man. This coffee table of ours is a death trap.

On Sunday we went to a local farm to get ice cream and see some animals. Henry fed the goats a bit. After he saw what others were doing, he grabbed some grass from the nearby lawn and tried to feed it the goats. He then got bored and started pushing his stroller around. This happens alot.

After the ice cream trip we went to the toy store. We picked up a gate for our stairs. (It's really impossible to be up there with him when one parent is watching the stairs.) We also picked up three toys, a play watering can, a small broom and a shopping cart. Hopefully pushing this cart around generates a lot less frustration than his pushing his high chair around.

I found this one on Meg's camera. Henry calls his grandparents "nah." It's pretty cute.

My weekend coins were poor this week.

32 small dollars turned up a new one for me, 2009P John Tyler.

8,000 half dollars produced just ten 40% silver halves (5 x 1966, 5 x 1968D), two proofs (1986S, 1993S) and eleven mint set halves (2002D, 2 x 2003P, 2004P, 2004D, 2005D, 2 x 2006D, 2 x 2007P, 2007D, 2008P). The 2008P half I found was chrome plated.

Found: 4 pennies (1 at Dunkin' Donuts, 1 at White Hen Pantry, 1 at Stop & Shop, 1 at Home Depot), 2 dimes (1 at White Hen Pantry, 1 at Friends')
