Day 1 - Friday May, 19th:
Amish Country - Kidron, Ohio
We stayed the night at the Inn at Honey Run in the Cardinal Cabin - it was AWESOME - I almost wish we could have stayed here the whole time. There were hiking trails all over the grounds and they even had goats! I learned that goats are actually kind of mean - they bullied this poor sheep the whole time...
Kevin decided that he couldn't determine which rodents were squirrells and which were chipmunks so he just called them small squirrels or big squirrels and eliminated the chipmunk confusion all together. The "small squirrel" in the pic below was perfectly posed!
The building that was built into the hill was called the Honeycomb and they had the coolest benches inside, I took a pic of one below - too bad it wouldn't fit in my luggage.
We also conquered Lehman's, Smuckers & a cheese factory on Friday - where my mom and I proceeded to fill up every square inch of precious luggage space with all sorts of cool stuff. Cookie cutters, dog dishes, ladels & cool antique Harley signs for Kev. Actually we ended up shipping it home - I just got the box last night and forgot about all the cool stuff we bought!
That night we proceeded on to Guilford Lake to stay at a cabin my mom found - I'll post more pics of that tomorrow. The boys had to take a navigation break to regroup outside of Smucker's in the parking lot. We also stopped by Root Candle store - which had a living hive inside the store with a pipe to outside so you could watch the bees make honey through a glass window. Pretty cool! There was a cool bird teacup and saucer but after our trip to Lehman's I opted to not spend anymore money...
Thats all for now - better go make dinner its getting late!
