Head down and projects galore this week. So we took the chance to relax on Sunday and tool around sunny Rhode Island in search of the perfect pumpkin experience. Lucy was thrilled with what we stumbled across---Shartner Farm. Yep, thats the name. Our take, the kids love it {hayride, corn maze, donuts} but a bit of an overpriced scene. But because Halloween rivals Christmas on the list of kid favorites, we went for it and took the Super 8 camera along.

Rhode Island is a little state chock full of treasures. For years, I have had this small Rhode Island bible called eat.shop.rhode island. It really is a carefully curated guide that does what is promises "an indespensible guide to stylishly unique, locally owned eating and shopping." This is one in a series of guides from some twenty different cities and regions around the country. The photojournalistic images and short, fun descriptive essays will make you want to hit the road in search of these treasures.
