After DH had one eye surgery and before the second one (which was today) we and DD and her oldest two took a few days off and headed to Amish Country. Her DH stayed home with their youngest and our pets.

Laura went last year and this was Rachel's first year to go with us. They were both so very good.
We did a LOT of outlet shopping and visited Bird-in-Hand Farmer's Market to stock up on the goodies they sell.
At breakfast every morning at Dienner's ! All you can eat for $4.95 and a large variety breakfast foods and pastries to temp anyone's appetite.

The girls loved the farms lands...
One big treat for them was the Amish Buggy ride. Laura and her mom took it last year and it was on her list of must do for this year. Rachel loved it too. The Amish gentleman let them ride up front with him and even let each of them hold the reins for a while. That was a BIG TREAT for the two girls. He was very informative and answered all questions those in the buggy asked him.
I did get to go in two Amish Owned Fabric places and picked up a few fat-quarters and a panel to add to my stash and a tw0 yard piece of Green Bay Packer's Fleece for DD to make her daddy a blanket. She makes the ones where you use two different colors/prints of fleece, cut fringe around the edges and tie the fringe pieces to join the two layers.

Thanks for your recent visit -- I'm late in responding --- no I didn't embroider the hats (believe me...they wouldn't have looked that good!)
