I’m not usually one to just dump a ton of photos on my readers. However, in this case I am going to do just that.
We went to Holmes County on Saturday with hubby’s grandparents and youngest brother. Now for those of you who don’t know, Holmes county Ohio is Amish country.
Lots to do and see up there.
We started out by going to Warther Musium in Dover Ohio. Basically this Ernest Warther was an excellent carver who was fascinated with trains. (In a nut shell)
It seems unbelievable, but all of these trains were hand carved from ebony and ivory, hundreds of pieces and crazy attention to detail.
We went through a restored part of their home and saw his wife’s button collection. There was a whole room filled with these designs.
Out back was a steam engine and caboose, where we had fun with photo opps.
Speaking of fun, Jason and Sheldon are 10 years apart in age, oldest and youngest. But mom says they are twins 10 years apart. What do you think?
After absolutely stuffing ourselves at an Amish diner, Gramps decides he wants to go to this Amish market in the next town over. Well I am driving and they don’t know how to get me there. Then there is the conversation that they will probably be closed by the time we get there and maybe we should stay in where we were to do some things.
So while that conversation/argument is going on, I’m still driving! I turn a corner and there is a huge Amish market with some other stores as well.
Good thing that van could stop and turn on a dime! I pulled in, parked, turned around and asked “will this work?” lol!
Really cool place though. There was huge barn type of petting zoo. I think I was in there for an hour, just loving on all those animals.
This horse was huge! As you can see by how little I look next to it.
Sorry, for the photo dump, (trust me, I didn’t even share 1/4 of them) but if you are reading this, then maybe, just maybe, you enjoyed it.
I have been known to link up to these totally cool and awesome linky parties! Why don’t you see which ones you can link up with today?
