Hi. Believe it or not, my name is also Deena and when I go to the library in Charlestown,RI they always ask my middle initial because there is a Deena Robbins in Providence. Is that you? Small world. Anyway, i will be taking care of three grandsons memorial day weekend. They are ages 13,11,8 and live in Barrington. They have a working knowledge of Providence, and I was wondering if your tour would be of interest to them , are there children oriented sights and areas that you think they would enjoy? Thank you for your input. Deena
