Here's some good pictures we took last weekend.

We had some fun playing outside in the driveway on Saturday (probably Hazel's favorite on property activity).

In the evening on Saturday we went to the Ecotarium's Pumpkin Festival. It was jammed packed! Way more people than we thought would be there. We got in for free. A nice lady ahead of us gave us a strip of twelve tickets. We waited for a long time to ride a packed, two locomotive train ride, but it seemed worth it. The kids were excited to ride there favorite train in the near dark. We had cotton candy ("on a stick!") and saw lots of carved pumpkins.

Henry spent the whole of last week working on this scene. It was a lot of fun helping him with it and hearing his descriptions of the place. Every building had a small story attached to it.

575 small dollars had six mint set dollars (1981P, 2002D, 2003D, 2006P, 2007P, 2007D) and one Canadian.

8,000 halves turned up one 90% silver half (1964), eight 40% silver halves (1965, 1966, 1967, 1968D, 1969D) and two proofs (1971S, 1978S).

5,040 quarters rounded up two silver Washingtons (1950, 1964), three Canadians, two Bahamas 25¢, one Bermuda 25¢ and one US nickel.

3,300 dimes got me one silver Rosie (1946S), five Canadians, one UK 5 pence and one Barbados 10¢.

6,000 pennies yielded seventy-six Wheats, sixty-nine Canadians (including one 1936, George V penny), one UK penny, one Panama 1¢, six US dimes and two Euro 2¢.

1919, 1920, 1927, 1930, 1937, 1938(2)
