Memorial Weekend Roadtrip to SugarCreek Ohio

There is something about Sugar Creek Ohio that makes us want to come back  all the time.  We promised that kids that we will take them for a short road trip as soon as  they got done with school.  It  is also a reward for them  for doing so well in school.  They are both straight A's students so they really deserve  some reward from us.  For them it is not about material things but  the bond that we create when we go somewhere and enjoy  things as a family.
 It is always a fun time driving down to Ohio .  Seeing the farm area is very relaxing.  We don't get to see  it  as often as we would like but we take  every chance we get to  see it.
 The kids get to see the the brick factory on the way, the furniture  factory and all other cool stuff that our city of Weirton don't have.
 Sugarcreek is the little Switzerland  of Ohio so it is a  unique place to visit.
 I was excited to see the schedule of the Annual Fabulous 50s Fling, it is on my birthday, yay!
 For some reason, we always miss the  exit going to Sugarcreek  and we have to turn  around and find it lol.  Even with GPS, we  still get lost!  That's the story of our lives, our sense of direction is  not the best.
For the most part though, we  enjoy being lost because we get to enjoy seeing new things that otherwise we won't be able to see if we   get to the destination right away.
There is  a big cuckoo clock  as the land,mark  in Sugarcreek and there's always people there.
We saw a some vehicle there with a Florida license plate so we were not the only ones who are from  another place.
My kids always love seeing the horse carriage  that the Amish people are using as their main  transportation.
Just walking around the town is fun because they have so many neat stuff.  Some of the  buildings are very ornate.
I also love the colorful exterior details of  some houses.
I love houses with this type of  design, wrap around porches and a colonial type of veranda.  But I think that this house is the business center of Sugarcreek.  We haven't gone inside it but maybe next time we will be able to go inside.
There is a  store with so many pretty things inside.  They have some beautiful quilts too.
That big frog never ceased  to amuse my son everytime we go there lol.
Even this rusty chair adds a charm to this house.
There are so much things to see in Sugarcreek.
Little by little, we will explore them as we go back there from time to time.
Here's a short video of my kiddos while having fun on the road.

How cute is that frog and with a guitar, too! I haven't been to the US yet, Sis, but we do have a goal to visit there hopefully, in the next 2 or 3 years :) I have relatives and friends mostly based in California so I guess we would be based there during our trip.

Lovely place to visit! I would like to see the cuckoo clock personally. That would have been so awesome to watch when the clock strikes the hour! I also like the store you went to. I'd grab a few of those figurines to take home as a remembrance.

What a lovely road trip you had! It's good that you really get to spend time with your family!

That town reminded me so much of the many small towns we passed by while driving in Pennsylvania. It was our first time to see Amish people in their carriage. Also the first time to see silos and barns and even bay hays rolled in the farm. Wow! Such a nice and quaint town you visited sis!
