Mike and I had a great weekend. We drove up to Amish Country on Saturday...through the charming towns of Sugarcreek and Berlin. Although it was the middle of winter, you can't miss the charms of those quaint towns. We ate at one of my favorite restaurants - Dutch Harvest. Their roast beef is unbelievable, and their famous dessert - Bag Apple Pie, with it's scrumptious sugar cookie crust - is absolutely delightful.
On Sunday we drove down to Circleville to celebrate Mike's mother's and brother's birthdays. LOL, they got Mike presents too even though his birthday isn't until late April. We said we hoped we'd be back before then! LOL. We visted with the kids...they are growing up so fast. Jonathan, our 14-year-old nephew, asked when he could come and stay. And 13-year-old Rebecca (his cousin) chimed in that she wants to stay the same time he does this summer. LOL, they reminisced about their past crazy times at our house...and said we owed them both a trip to play putt-putt (since Jonathan hurt his toe last time right before we were going to go), and a visit to the big local pool. Even Rebecca's friend Esther, who was there, wants to come! So we may have a houseful, especially if Becca's sister Elizabeth, 15, comes too. She went out to dinner with her boyfriend Nathaniel and his family last night, but stopped in to see us all first. LOL, I told the kids with all their names - Elizabeth, Nathaniel, Jonathan, Rebecca, and Esther, it sounded like we could be talking about Little House on the Prairie. LOL. I love old-fashioned names.
Congrats to Elizabeth, and my 16-year-old cousin Emily too, for qualifying for the district swim meet. Both girls swam personal bests, which is awesome. It was a great first year of high school swimming for them both!
It's back to cleaning today, and then work resumes tomorrow. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
