Ever since we moved to Ohio, I’ve been bugging TJ about visiting Amish Country.
He finally agreed to go…and since this week is his fall break (meaning: no school) we finally went!
Our first stop was Heini’s Cheese Chalet.
With over 40 different types of cheeses to sample, TJ was in heaven.
Unfortunately for TJ, this is the only picture I took at the cheese shop.
We came home with a couple different blocks of our favorite cheeses.
Fall in Ohio is definitely the best.
Crisp, cool weather…bright colored leaves…perfection.
As for the food at Der Dutchman: delish.
TJ had a sirloin burger (but since he had filled up on cheese at Heini’s, he only finished half).
Lisa had a gravy smothered pot roast sandwich with mashed potatoes (so yummy I wanted to lick the plate!).
Anytime Riker sees a tree, he says he wants to climb it.
I’m not sure why he does this, since he’s never actually climbed a tree.
Riker’s favorite part of the tour was definitely the barn.
Except for this donkey:
this guy was all up in Riker’s grill and would not leave the poor kid alone…
he finally left him alone once Riker started crying!
After a tour of a couple Amish homes (which was much longer than we anticipated…and much too boring to entertain Riker) we went on a horse and buggy ride.
It was a long, fun, busy day.
There were a couple other shops we had originally planned to visit, but this is what I saw two minutes after we left Yoder’s Farm:
Looks like someone had too much fun.
Overall, our trip to Amish Country was a success and we can cross it off our Ohio Bucket List!
