I think I got everything I hoped for on this Saturday! It's amazing what sleeping in until 8:30 can do for a person! I woke up feeling better (more energy!) and made homemade waffles for breakfast. We then got everyone showered and dressed and chores done and headed out the door. The weather was a little worrisome early this morning, but it quickly improved and ended up near perfect for our outing! Brown's Marketplace turned out to be full of more junk food than I needed to be tempted by, but I did find one jar of jam and plenty of gummies, as well as a little cheese. It couldn't really compare with the large cheese factories and marketplace that I visited in Amish country, but it was worth visiting at least once.
Here's one I like to think is somewhat metaphorical...
The distance that develops between a teenager and her parent!!
Unfortunately the sun wasn't in the right place for most of these photos so they aren't the best, and they really don't show well on here anyway, but I'm sure we'll be back and have plenty more opportunities to get some great pics!
Afterwards we took some back roads home and also stopped at the video store for a couple of movies (don't ask which ones... they were both weird and not worth the money!!) Now it's after 10 and I'm supposed to be in bed so I can be bright-eyed and bushy tailed for church in the morning... I just wanted to share my wonderful day with everyone else first!
