Amish Country in Ohio

Our long vacation  to Busch Garden and Virginia Beach got cancelled so hubby and I  decided to just hit  different places while he was on vacation leave.  We went to Hershey Park for two days then we came home.  Then we  drove to the Amish place in Sugarcreek, Ohio on July 17th.  It was our first time visiting an Amish place.  Hubby have been to one when he was a kid though.
 It was raining when we left home and we were praying the whole way though  for the rain to stop when we are there and it did!
 One thing that we love about road trips especially to places with lots of farms is seeing the  farm animals that we don't normally see in the city.
 There are so many interesting to see when you go on a road trip.
 Going to the Amish  place was not planned, it was just a random urge that hubby and I had.  I have been wanting  to see how Amish lives since I only see it on TV so I was excited on this trip.
Our GPS took us to the back road and we were starting to think we were lost again, lol.  We were driving in the middle of nowhere but  glad that we were on the right path.  
 When we finally reached Sugarcreek, we were  relieved!
 The kids were very excited when we  stared seeing horses.
 The first place that we went and see  was the oldest  Amish house that was built in 1869 but was relocated.  This old horse buggy was fascinating in the eyes of my son.
 The old Amish house was relocated  near a cornfield.
 It's amazing that  the house was relocated  with  its foundation and every thing still intact.
 There was a couple Amish who  are entertaining guests inside the house.
 I will  make a separate post of what is inside.  They have so many display that took us back from the olden days.  Those things that we see in old movies were on that house
 I asked the old guy if he foundation were just added when it as relocated but he said that   everything is original.
 Before leaving, we  wanted some photos  by the horse buggy as we don't see  this things in our place.
 The couple who were attending to guests were very sweet and kind.  I love that they are still  maintaining the house for future generations to see.
 Our son was in his ornery mood of making those poses, it makes us  laugh, lol.
 I will  post some more  photos of our  adventure in Amish land next time.  July  brings us interesting  adventures.  We were in Sweet rush hunt, from Hershey o Sugarcreek, they are all sound so sweet
