This weekend was a pretty good one for us. There was just one fitful episode from Henry. Mom and Dad both got some stuff done, had good times with the kids and went out!

On Saturday I took the kids to a local field and some new trails. Before Hazel's afternoon nap we went out again to our favorite park for some swinging. In the evening Mom and Dad had a rare date night! My mother and father watched the kids. Henry had fun reading with Nana.

Sunday morning I took Henry to church. His Cioci watched him and Liam. Henry said to Nicole, “Hazel and I like bananas. Mom and Dad like soda.” Henry and Liam had several disagreements about how to pronounce the word bananas. Strangely, Henry was in the right, Nicole said. After church we went over to Nicole’s for a short play date. Evan and Liam were “wrestling” a little roughly at one point. Henry told them to stop. Liam yelled, “you’re not the boss of me, Henry!” It was pretty funny.

After Hazel’s nap I took the kids to the Ecotarium. On the way there I realized Henry didn’t have shoes! We drove back home to get them. Hazel didn’t like that too much. After Meg passed them into the car, Henry asked, “did we get both of them?” “Why’d we (funny) leave them at home?” “Don’t worry Haze, we’ll be there soon.” At the place we had a train ride. Hazel loved that. She bounced most of the time and did her singing. We played with tubes, crawled in some equipment and saw a real bunny outside. In the evening we had a good bath time (finally Henry seems to have gotten over his bath aversion – Hazel’s being excited for baths seems to have swayed him). Henry came down a couple of times before sleeping for real. He can make up so many excuses. If it doesn’t go on for very long it is pretty cute as he’s really chatty then.

8,000 halves had just one 40% silver half (1966).

5,000 pennies produced twenty-eight Wheats, forty-three Canadians and one Bahamas 1¢ (1974).
