Walnut Creek, Ohio

We were talking to our neighbor  one time and we mentioned how we love to go to the Amish place in Ohio.  He asked us which one do we go to, we thought  there's only one place  but apparently not.  We always go to the one in Sugarcreek.  He told us to check out the Amish place in Walnut Creek, Ohio.
My husband and kids asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday so I told them that we should go to Walnut Creek and check it out.
It was a little ways compared to the distance when going to Sugarcreek but it was nice  seeing a different Amish place.  
I like Sugarcreek more  than Walnut Creek though.  You can shop and  sightsee  in one place.  In Walnut Creek, the shopping  place is different, then you have to drive to see  the flea market place, then the  furniture and outdoor store, I didn't like it that much.
It was worth checking out a new place though.
The  food market was huge, it was like a  huge mall.  Here's my  daughter who likes to  try Amish products.  She loved the jalapeƱo jelly on crackers so we got a jar of it and a box of the crackers.
They were contemplating on getting some donuts but ended up not getting any.  I got me a  carrot cake though, it was delicious.
As I mentioned earlier, the  food market was huge.  We didn't really checked everything but  my husband got me an iron skillet.  It was funny  when we were checking out, the cashier  told my husband not to upset me.  I laughed and said "that would make a great weapon" and we all laughed.
I love the displays.  It reminds me of the  Amish house that we went to  that has all the different tools and  things that they used from previous era.
I think my favorite of our trip was our visit to the outdoor  furniture store, the Swiss Country Lawn and Craft.  They have so many things that I would love to have, the only problem is, I can't afford them ha ha.
My husband is eyeing on this  furniture for our back porch, this set cost almost $1,800.
We will go back there and buy a swing though.  He love  spending  time in the front porch and he wants something that he could rock back and forth.
Our last stop was in the flea market.  It was a huge place as well.
This  guy was performing  by the  entrance  lobby  so we listened to him for a while.  He can sing really well.
We spent some time exploring this place but we didn't get anything.
I was drawn to these service dogs.  The lady was selling garden stuff so I  look at all the things she has before  moving on to the next.
I find this one a bit funny so I took a picture of it lol.
Welcome to the Man Cave stuff.  My husband has  a sword that he got from Japan.  We don't have aMan Cave in the house though.  I told him if he wants one, he can fix  the  basement.
I  was separated from  them when I was  looking around and  we found out that we didn't have phone service in Walnut Creek.  We couldn't  communicate using our phone, when I found the kids, my husband has gone looking for me, oh boy.
By the time, we have convened, it was time for us to go back home.
I got to say, it was a nice birthday  short road trip, we got to see  an[other part of Ohio that we have never been to before.
There's something about Ohio that's very calming and relaxing.  When you are driving along the road, just looking at farms and  farm animals, makes me wish that I  live in a farm.
It's amazing how   older age can teach you.  When I was growing up (we lived in a farm), I couldn't wait to get out and  explore the city, then I found out that  cities weren't all that great asd I thought it would.
Our  road trips always end up with these two falling asleep on our way home.
Walnut Creek Ohio was nice but I love Sugarcreek more.

We have a bunch of Amish around us. We enjoy visiting the different stores and even the road side stands they set up.

It's nice to explore areas near your place that you haven't been to before. A little adventure can't hurt and looks like they enjoyed it as well.

What a fun trip to take the kids on in the summer. I didn't realize that there was an Amish presence in Ohio, but have visited spots similar in Pa.

What a fun way to spend your birthday! I enjoy going to places like this as well. I'm pretty sure it would be tough for me to leave the food market! SO many food to try!

The Amish Place in Walnut Creek looks pretty interesting. Especially the food market and the outdoors furniture market. A nice birthday outing with the family and I am sure you had a lovely time. Belated birthday wishes, have a great year ahead.

I’ve never been to Walnut Creek Ohio, but it looks like a place I would enjoy. It looks calming!

This place has so much to offer. I like that they have separate places for food, furniture, and more. I'd definitely take the time in one as well.
