For part of Meg's birthday we went to the "Red Diner" (as Henry calls it). Here's Hazel enjoying her favorite, a Mum-Mum.

Two weekends ago we went to a local McDonald's for cousin Liam's birthday. In this picture Liam's giving Henry a gentle push down a little slide. They had a lot of fun together dealing with the big kids. "What Liam say to me?," Henry asked us on the way home. "I fall down big slide on my bum."

Hazel playing with a dollhouse. She likes this, cars, printed material, heating vents, crinkly stuff and finger foods.

A few days ago Henry told Meg that he wanted to make a slide. He said he needed wood. She told him we didn't have any in the house. He then opened our closet and got out this piece of our dining room table. Pretty good idea!

I did really well with last night's coins.

62 small dollars and 6 halves didn't get me anything.

4,560 quarters produced one silver Washington (1952S), nineteen Canadians, four US nickels, one Canadian nickel (1 Ni), one UAE Dirham and a India Half Rupee (1943). I hadn't found a silver quarter in about a month; finding one that was a new for me was great! I have also had a goal of finding a non-Canadian foreign silver coin - the Indian coin fits the bill! It is 50% silver, .0937 ounces ASW. The design is really cool and it's condition seems excellent to me.

3,800 dimes rounded up two silver Rosies (2 x 1959D), thirty-five Canadians (a record), two Barbados 10¢, one Cayman Islands 5¢, one Aruba 10¢ and one US penny.

1,280 nickels had thirteen Canadians (1 Ni), one Brazil 5¢ (been finding a lot of these lately) and one Bermuda 5¢. This is about half the nickels I gathered, I'm expecting a lot more Canadians.
