Weekend Getaway!

I think I might have made a record for the number of photos in one post. LOL But I just could not decide which ones to post. I am sure I have broken some sort of blogger unspoken rule of posting too many photos in a single post but too bad. We had a wonderful trip to the Amish Country. I really enjoyed the lodge we stayed at the most. The Amish Country was a bit touristy at times but still I am glad we went to see it. My Dad took the whole family on this trip, well everyone who wasn't working or out of town and we had a blast. The leaves in Northern Ohio were putting on a show and it really was pretty.


If you can't tell in this photo, this is my sweetie and he went over a wall into lots of weeds to save Maddie's favorite binky. What Papa wouldn't do for his Maddie? LOL
We tried to get the Grandkids and the Great Grandkids in a photo but by the time we remembered half the group had already gone home. There are four other Great Grandkids missing from this photo and six grandkids missing from the picture. I think, don't hold me to that number. :-)
Here's my Dad and his four girls. From the back it's me on the left then Judy, June, Gail and Dad. I'm the youngest of all of them. hahahahahaha.................
I would have loved to bring home one of these wooden rocking chairs that the Amish made. Aren't they so pretty?

We went into an Antique Store where Maddie loved these old fashion school desks. I remember these things.
Maddie also crashed a wedding reception at the lodge. She was dancing outside of the reception room so one of the girls asked her if she wanted to come in and dance with her. She had a ball. The wedding took place on the lodge's grounds. What a beautiful setting, but a little chilly.

They had a bird presentation one night and we learned about owls and this red tail hawk. He was injured and they nursed him back to health but he will never go back into the wild.
I could not figure out this Amish buggy. It look like it was some kind of bullet proof buggy, it wasn't like the rest of them.



These last photos are of the grounds surrounding the Mohican Lodge. I really enjoyed walking the trails.
This is the covered bridge at Mohican State Park.
Look at how beautiful the leaves were. Everywhere I looked there was color.
I know this was alot of photos but it really was beautiful and we enjoyed our family weekend away. Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Oh man! I got caught again. LOL One of these days someone will believe I am the youngest. :-) Okay, I will "fess" up, I am actually the oldest of the four gals.

You all looked about the same age to me. I love all the leafy colors! And I especially love the photo of your father with his girls.

Sounds like a really fun trip! Your picture were all good and if there is such a rule, I'm glad you broke it.

Beautiful photos - I enjoyed every single one of them. The amish chairs on the porch looks like a professional photo, and like you I'd love to snag one or three and bring it/them home!

Oh, you are so pretty! I loved all the photos and I'm glad you posted them! I've heard of that lodge because it is run by the same corporation that operates the lodges at Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Grand Canyon. It looks gorgeous there!
