last fall when my mom and i went to smithville, we only walked around the shops. this time i was a little worried that alaina would quickly get bored. little did i know there was a carousel, spooky train ride, and a pet costume parade going on. the place was closing when we finally got alaina to leave!

a little bit about smithville:
smithville is a small community located in the new jersey pine barrens, about 15 miles from atlantic city. smithville remained rural until the 1960's when the town center (where we were) opened for tourists. the town center has a colonial feel with cobblestone streets. it's home to many roosters, geese and stray cats. my family has been enjoying visits to smithville since i was a child.
