It was a great 32nd anniversary! Thank you to everyone who commented and left anniversary wishes on the last post! We appreciate it so much!
Tom and I have returned home after enjoying a wonderful four-day anniversary trip to Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. Here's the beautiful sunrise we saw each morning peaking out from behind an antique store...which was, oh, so conveniently located right beside the Bed and Breakfast where we were staying.Here's the Village Antique Market next door which was filled to the brim with so much stuff!:Many outdoor displays beckoned the antique-loving customer:Tom and I enjoyed rides around the Amish country-side where scenes like this one below were typical--lots of barns, silos, corn fields, flowers, buggies, and market stands:I loved the flowers that were in all the Amish gardens:There were lots of quilt shops around, and this one was my favorite:And here's a very patient husband checking his phone while waiting for his wife to take pictures outside before going inside the quilt shop: And (below) this beautiful Compass Stars Supreme quilt with 175 different fabrics and 2,112 pieces--just in the flying geese circle alone--and with a price tag of $3,740! Everywhere we went there was so much to see and do. Here's yet another quilt and antique shop. The red quilt caught my eye immediately:On Saturday morning we went to the Bird-in-Hand farmer's market to compare it with our local market. There were so many different vendors--not just beautiful vegetables like these: ...but lots of spices, donuts, cookies, candies, quilts, jams, jellies, meats and so much more all inside one very long building. I took this picture for Sarah in case she wanted to add something different to her farmer's market repertoire: We attended a theater production, ate at one of the many smorgasbords in the area, visited an Amish farm with miniature horses, tasted a homemade root beer float, played mini-golf, rode the train, traveled to our friends' church in Ephrata on Sunday morning, and enjoyed ourselves tremendously while we were away. Thanks for traveling along with us. I'm so thankful for being able to see such a beautiful area of Pennsylvania!
