Amish Country

On Saturday, we drove the two hours to Amish Country. Our first stop was the Boyd and Wurthmann Restaurant. The food was good, but then the waitress took it to the next level when she suggested the bagged apple pie for dessert. I didn't know "bagged apple" was a specific type of pie, but whatever the difference is between that and regular apple pie, it is phenomenal. After lunch we walked around all the nearby stores. After window shopping for a while, we headed to Heini's Cheese Chalet and got a quick tour of the cheese factory.

Taylor's favorite parts of the trip was riding around in a car grocery cart in the Amish super market and seeing the horses and buggies driving down the street. Andrew's favorite part was the food. My favorite part was how absolutely gorgeous the area was. 

I took a total of the above three pictures, but still wanted to do a quick blog post to document our time in Amish Country. And here's some unrelated pictures of my cute kids just because:

Our Fourth

We started our fourth of July by going to a free pancake breakfast at our church. Afterwards, we headed to the Farm Park which is a working dairy farm with lots of activities for kids.

We decided not to go to a firework show since it doesn't get dark until after 9:30 (which is about two hours after bedtime for the kids). Instead we walked the 30 seconds from our house down to the lake to see if we could see any fireworks in either directions down the shoreline. Turns out we didn't even need to do that. Everyone was having their own personal firework shows in their yards.

Even if we hadn't witnessed any fireworks, I'd say that sunset was pretty patriotic.

Garfield Park Reservation

Something Ohio has plenty of is beautiful, well-maintained parks. Every park we've been to so far has been super nice. Andrew only had to work a half-day on Monday, so we picked up some Choolaah (my favorite place to eat) and headed to Garfield Park Reservation. It's a large wetland park with lots of hiking trails that lead to waterfalls and old bridges. There's also lots of deer that don't seem to mind a bunch of people walking near them.
