We live about an hour from the heart of Amish Country.
And I am loving it. Not only do they make some really cool things but their food is delicious!
And even the kids love it- they get to see lots and lots of horses and buggy's!
So we made sure to venture into Amish Country when Justin's parents were here.
I don't have many photos of our time there- but we will be back!
I was too busy enjoying everything I guess!
They had the best thrift store there with lots of goodies!
What I do have are these.
I really liked Amish country- it was fun. Next time the plan is to go and actually learn about the Amish. I am ashamed to admit I do not know much. I could google it but I would rather receive the information first hand. So Justin and I will head back there soon- they are having a rib cook off and sidewalk sale in september that sounds very tempting.
While we were there we did see a horse, that was pulling a buggy and family of 6, just collapse in front of us. It was sad and scary- but it was rather interesting to see the help and service that the family in the buggy received immediately from that Amish community. There were no questions no hesitation just instant help. Before we even had a chance to think (not that I would have been much help- with my elaborate knowledge of horses and everything) they were surrounded by 3 or four Amish families that were just passing by and offering their help. I guess there are many lessons to be learned from that.
