The Hamburger

Growing up we had a hamburger...



this same one! I know it's ghetto but we like it. Every time we found money laying around the house we would call it "hamburger money."
Everyone in the family would contribute loose change or dollars. Then when if filled up we would have a breaking ceremony and decide on where to go.
Well about a year ago my dad bought our family a hamburger...the same one!
Everyone in the family has been filling it up with loose change or tooth fairy money etc.

And now it's time to break the hamburger!





The kids have waited a long year for this!
They all guessed on how much they think is in there and we will count the money tomorrow. I am making the kids roll all the coins too. Then we will all vote on a fun place to go and hit up IN-N-OUT on our way!
~Dad we need another hamburger!

Seriously, that's the way to go! We try and do it with a 5 gallon bucket and we always end up dumping it too soon because of something-- with **DA BURGER** (( pink panther voice)) lol... You can't see the $$ so I'd be less tempted to crash it. WHERE DO U GET IT?! & what did u choose to do!?
