Whew! What a week! We just got back from a week long trip to Baltimore, MD. We visited my SIL and her husband and had a fabulous time! I swear, I did not think about stamps one bit! My SIL just found out her twins are going to be a girl and a boy! Can’t wait to make some cutie baby things for them!

We did so so much this week! We went to Mount Vernon, Ocean City, Assateague Island, the Science Center, Port Discovery, and the Aquarium. Whew! I’m tired! So now the mountain of laundry commences. Dude – do you know how much laundry 5 people generate in one week?? We are totally unpacked and have made a small dent in that laundry pile. Thank goodness Matthew is the resident laundry folder! (Aren’t I lucky?!?!) Anyway, I’ve got tons of cute pictures of the boys – digging in the sand for sand crabs, wearing 3 – corner hats at Mt Vernon, extracting DNA from wheat germ at the science center (my personal fave – who doesn’t think 3 boys lined up in lab coats, safety goggles and latex gloves are the cutest things ever?!) and more! Better get to digiscrapping, huh?

Anyway, I’ve got a winner from the blog prize last week – thank you so much for all the lovely messages for the military! On our flight back today – they actually announced some of the military that was on the flight and they got a nice round of applause. I thought before I tell you the winner, I’d share one of my favorite military experiences. As you know, you move a lot in the military ( I think we moved 7 times in our first 7 years of marriage). And your stuff – well, it doesn’t always arrive at the same time as you. We had moved to Fort Gordon, GA when Andy was 2 and Alex was 8 mos old. (No Adam yet!) We had no stuff in our house yet so we had gone to eat dinner. Another couple at the restaurant noticed we were military (aren’t those haircuts a giveaway??) and paid for our meal without even saying anything to us about it. That was so nice! We were stressed from the trip, worried about our stuff and taking care of two little ones. It was a lovely thing for them to do.

Now, on to the winner! Using the random number generator, this is the winner!!

Candy Heathman Says:
Thanks for the blog candy and a great way to recognize our servicepeople. I would like to thank all the service personnel and their families for what they do for our country. This is a shout-out to my dad who served in the NAVY!

Congratulations Candy!  Kick me and email (emily@emilygiovanni.com) and I’ll get your prize in the mail!

And I thought I’d share a digi page that I made on the airplane today. I scrapped a page of my two nieces from a day we spent in our backyard last month. They are heading out for a few weeks on the road before the move to China. They’ll leave Tuesday morning. I will really miss them so much!
