Natasha's Trip: Day 3

From: Natasha

Today we took a ride through Amish country. Our first stop was Kitchen Kettle Village where lots of Amish arts and crafts are sold. I bought a lovely candle and candle wreath, and some presents for family.

On our next stop we visited a family from Rachel's church, Jody Sanger and her children. We had lunch and some fun playing with the children at their house. We then went over to an Amish farm of friend's of Jody & her family. The family was very kind and hitched up the buggy and took us a ride. It was lots of fun. We discussed their speaking of some high German, but a variation referred to as "Pennsylvania Dutch", and I told her that my husband's family all speak high German.

And lastly, some cute Amish sheep!

Our last stop of the day was for ice cream at the Lapp's Dairy (I forgot to take pictures! Sorry!). The ice cream and waffle cones were homemade and very tasty!
