Well that stunk! ... the game that is. Games like that make me glad I don't care that much. Otherwise things were pretty good for us. We were busy and the weekend went by quickly.

On Friday we went out to the Olive Garden. It was Henry's idea. I asked him what his favorite thing about the restaurant was. He told me it was the chocolate, meaning the Andes candies they give you with your bill. (in a similar way Henry told us he likes the Botanical Gardens because the store there has nice earrings) It was a bit crazy of a meal. Hazel definitely in that bad for restaurants age, too old to stay long, if at all, in a high chair and to your to sit peacefully for more than minute in the booth. I had to take the kids for a walk around the place to Meg could have five minutes to eat her food. Hope this doesn't last too long!

Saturday was mostly filled for me by a church retreat. The kids spent the morning at Nana and Grandpa's. (or as Henry puts it "Nana's house") They were good there and seemed to enjoy it. Perhaps a full day isn't too far off. After I got home I took Henry and Hazel to the library, our usual fun activity.

After church on Sunday and some naps we took the kids furniture shopping. It was so-so. They were cute and happy at one store, but at the second Henry was very disturbed by some loud sounds and scary visuals (sensory overload). We have seen that Henry in some time and have gotten kind of used to his new mellow self. It made me thankful that we have gotten past that stage for the most part. For supper Meg made the kids the cutest fruit cars using apples, bananas, blueberries and toothpicks. It worked really well and I think it might even work with vegetables. Four wheels wasn't enough for Henry, however, he requested Meg next make him an 18-wheeler truck! :)

8,000 halves had nothing. Boo.

8,400 pennies produced fifty-eight Wheats, fifty-one Canadians, three US dimes and one Panama 1¢.
