This weekend went pretty well for us. We didn't have much planned, but there were still some very fun moments there.

On Friday we went out for Indian. It was a bit crazy as usual with Hazy. My favorite was her hanging on the handicap bars in the Men's room and her slamming the seat down on Henry before he was out of the way ... he's OK! Afterwards we got two new fish, orange ones, and some ice cream from Trader Joe's.

Saturday morning was filled with watching Meg run a short race that was part of the local Catholic church's family festival. It's always great to see her at the end. She was very surprised by our being there.

After that I took the kids to the Higgins Armory. The kids room there never disappoints and isn't very expensive with the library pass.

Later I took Henry and Hazel to the park after Hazel's nap. Henry did a face-plant while attempting to get off the swings right at the start, but he recovered very quickly and was off trying to use some new equipment. The whole week was filled with him trying new playground equipment, sticking to it and doing something he hadn't done before. We're very proud of him!

At night during bath time Henry and I were successful at getting Hazel to say "Hazel!" It was the first time I've heard her say it. It sounds like a cross between "Hazel" and "shovel."

On Sunday morning we went to our church picnic. In the afternoon we went to another park and for a very short time went to the family festival.

I didn't search too much coin last week. Light pickups!

7 large dollars and 70 small dollars had nothing.

6,480 quarters turned up one silver Washington (1934 ... found three of this year in 2012 so far), seven Canadians, one UK 10 pence, one Bermuda 25¢ one Bahamas 25¢, four US nickels and a new modern one for me, the 2011D Glacier.

1,350 dimes had six Canadians.

1,040 nickels produced five Canadians (1 Ni).

8,050 pennies rounded up thirty-one Wheats, fifty-eight Canadians, one Bahamas 1¢, one Euro 2¢ and two US dimes.
