Last weekend we made our way out to Amish Acres for the second time. The first time was with my family and this time was with Gran, John’s mom. (John and his dad and brother were enjoying some guy time at the Notre Dame football game.) The place was decked out for fall (be still my heart!) and there were pumpkins, huge squash (squashes?), gourds, and scarecrows everywhere. I wish I had more pictures and better pictures, but I was kind of busy keeping up with kids!
Look at this cute scare-crow! He was a delivery guy and it made me think of Doug from King of Queens.
I really wanted a cute picture of all four kids. Hmmmmm…. I guess we get an E for effort. Next time I’ll take some Gorilla Glue and glue their little hineys to the steps! I also wish I had known how fallish everything was going to look – I would have dressed them in fall colors for pictures! Good grief, La, get it together, right?
Of course, there was shopping with Gran. That’s always fun because everyone knows that Gran buys you whatever you want! Woohoo! In this case Julia got a Hawaiian looking Ty bear (because that has everything to do with the Amish farm we were visiting!) and John David got a bow and arrow (which I suppose is a little bit more Amish?). Aulora got a stuffed horse (definitely Amish) and I don’t remember what Joshua got.
(In case you’re wondering, this was a working Amish farm until about 25 years ago. It’s now owned by a history buff who has made sure that it is an accurate representation of the People. You can take tours of the house buildings and the old school house and the restaurant is in a super old barn. Many Amish people are employed there.)
Love you babies!!!
(edited to say: I'm trying out some new blog tools. My post isn't supposed to look like this, but I need sleep so this is how it stays!)
