The certified framing experts at Mom & Pop’s Frame Shop prep keepsakes for presentation while shielding them against wear and tear with a vast array of frames. Conservation-grade mats eschew the high acid content of paper mats to protect precious photos and artwork, and the computerized mat cutter replaces the rough edges and teeth marks of traditional mat cutting to ensure straight, accurate fits. Custom shadow boxes display all manner of physical memorabilia, from a baby's first pair of socks to a grandparent’s pilfered Russian warhead, and multi-opening mats can show off a series of black-and-white family shots. Prices for custom framing vary by material and size; prices for poster framing may start at $95.

The owners of Corona Pumpkin Farm weren?t setting out to build a business in the fall of 2009. They just wanted to cultivate fresh, healthy produce for their family. So they began sowing seeds in box gardens, nourishing the soil with compost from chickens that also bore fresh eggs, and the occasional golden one. Eventually, the chickens? bounty outgrew the boxed gardens, and the humble family endeavor flourished into Corona Pumpkin Farm, which sits atop more than an acre of land. Now the farmers nurture more than 50 types of pumpkins for eating and carving, as well as a cornucopia of fruits and veggies that includes three types of corn and pick-your-own boysenberries. Along with the produce, they raise chickens and turkeys for meat, gather eggs from the coop, and sometimes barter with neighbors for beef and pork.
To show their respect for Mother Nature and their own health, they prefer to use organic solutions first, avoiding chemicals on their garden grub whenever possible. But visitors don?t flock to the farm just for the fresh, healthy fare; they come to pick their own pumpkins, meander through the 10-foot-high stalks that fill a half-acre corn maze, and enjoy other seasonal activities, such as cuddling baby chicks, zooming down an inflatable slide, painting pumpkins, and crafting personalized trick-or-treat bags.
The professionally trained music instructor behind My Music School teaches children aged 6–17 to play guitar, bass, violin, and ukelele during semiprivate weekly classes. The classes are social, giving students the opportunity to make friends as they hone their skills. Students might even gain some unexpected math knowledge, which they can put to use when counting the number of frets on their dad's vintage air guitar. Students of all ages and ability levels can also opt for private lessons.
