Happy Birthday!

This weekend we celebrated Hazel's first birthday with a big party for family and friends. It was a short kid party, 11AM-2PM (those are her best hours). We ate and played inside and outside. Lots of kids made use of our sandbox and Hazel's new water table. Meg made all of the delicious lunch food and a special birdhouse case (Hazel's into birds these days).

Hazel enjoying her cake. She was totally covered after this as one can imagine. I bathed her in the sink quickly and put her in a second outfit.

Hazel looking at her gifts. She was really good about this. Henry and the other kids were too.

Hazel and Henry sharing her baby stroller. They don't like to share this toy too often. It's the one toy they both seem to want to use. Hazel likes to dance a bit to the sounds it makes.

My coins weren't too exciting this weekend.

66 small dollars had nothing.

8,000 half dollars turned up two 90% silver halves (2 x 1964D) and nine 40% silver halves (1966, 4 x 1967, 4 x 1968D).

80 quarters had nothing.

700 dimes produced one silver Rosie (1964) and one Canadian.

160 nickels had nothing.

5,750 pennies rounded up thirty-five Wheats, twenty-six Canadians, two US dimes, one UK penny and one Malta 1¢ (1991). The Maltese coin is a new type for me.

1918, 1929, 1949, 1957D, 1958 (incomplete list)

Found: 4 pennies, 1 quarter, 3 foreign coins (1 Canadian dime, 2 Canadian quarters)
