We had such a great day yesterday. We headed out to Marion, Ky to visit with the Amish community there. On the way we stopped by our families cemetery and changed out flowers. It was nice to be up there.
Once we got to Marion we went by the tourism center and got a map. Ate lunch at 88 Dip...a local favorite that has been serving the best burgers for over 50 years....and then got settled in the car for the ride to visit the Amish.
Once there we went in to Yoder's Bakery...where Miller got cookies and fudge and Madison checked out their sodas. Yes Amish drink sodas. I picked up some breads and then went over to the Creekside produce. I picked me up some squash as my garden didnt make much this year. I also picked up some onions...they were so cheap and I can cut them up and freeze them.
We walked from house to house watching them. It was laundry day....clothes everywhere. we picked flowers and laughed and chased Miller out of their yards...it was a nice, beautiful lazy summer day. Us and the world.
The Amish have such a simple life and I envy that. I told Madison I wish I could live it for only a week. They are such simple quiet people.
As we left we headed to the local Dairy Queen for sundaes and came home. A simple day....spent with the kids watching someones elses life while enjoying ours at the same time.
A great summer day we wont forget.
Today.............the rain has been falling and it doesnt look like a pool day...so we are headed to a local pottery shop to paint. Maybe some dessert on the way home.
This week is filled with great adventures for the kids and I. Summer break is coming to an end and I want to fill them with great times.
Enjoy your day friends!
