New Jersey

Today the Garden State, tomorrow the world!

Okay, so maybe that's an exaggeration. Tomorrow is actually Connecticut. But today, we forged on through our third state, New Jersey, capital Trenton, home to the infamous Atlantic City. Hubby spent a large chunk of his childhood in south Jersey, so this particular state had greater meaning to our family.

We also lucked out and got our New Jersey tourism guide in the mail on the same day we were working on the state. Two down, forty-eight to go! I owe the mailman a Christmas gift.

Interesting fact : New Jersey is one of the premier glass-manufacturing capitals in the world.

Over the weekend we picked up a fun assortment of postcards to exchange with other kids around the U.S.

We also bought stamps for the first time in.....uhhh.....whenever stamps last cost 39 cents. Eons ago.
