#AmyinPA Day5

I woke up this morning to the sounds of Sadie singing as she hung out her laundry and the squeals of two little girls. Not a bad alarm, I have to say.
We decided to take it a little easier today, and I was glad that we went to the school yesterday. Right after Sadie got her laundry hung on the line, it started to rain. And it rained and rained and rained. As I’m writing this post, it’s still raining.
Did all this precipitation stop us from acting like tourists? Of course not. After eating a big helping of Sadie’s breakfast casserole, we headed out to Intercourse. Our first stop was to take Sadie’s youngest by her mother-in-law’s house so she could watch her while we ran around. The little one gets a little cranky after hanging out with us for too long. We just don’t do enough that two year olds like to do.
Then we headed over to the donut shop because we hadn’t eaten in at least an hour! amishday5LOL
Next, we went to Country Housewares. I found some great treasures to try and fit into my suitcase, but I enjoyed myself, just hanging out and shopping.
As the rain poured down, we pulled into Country Cupboard. We ducked inside and took a look around, then walked through to Nancy’s Notions and Zook’s Fabrics. Our destination? The Immergut Pretzel stand. Yum, yum!
Just as we were finishing up, our friend Nancy called. She was getting off from work at the pizza kiosk early because of all the rain and she wanted to “hang with us.” So we swung by and picked her up then headed to Emma’s popcorn. Best. Popcorn. Ever. I bought Jalapeno Cheddar, Zesty Parmesan, Sour Cream and Onion, and Sweet and Salty. I’m supposed to be taking some home to my boys, but I’m not sure how that’s going to work. 
Munching on popcorn all the way, we drove to an Amish resale shop. It was great fun poking around. Y’all know how much I love thrift stores. But this one was especially quaint. They had everything from used books to new toys and everything in between.
After there we headed to Costco. Yes, Costco. Stacey and I didn’t really need anything there and since our pint-sized companion had fallen asleep, we stayed in the car while amish day 5 -athey shopped.
Then we had just enough time to take Nancy home, pick up the ‘baby’ and get to the house to pick up Dawdi and Mary (his daughter-in-law) and go out to supper at Yoders’ Buffet.
We’re finally back home and the car is packed for tomorrow. Thankfully the rain held off long enough for us to get everything in the back for our trip to The Green Dragon Market tomorrow.
And Sadie’s laundry? As the rain continues to fall, it’s still hanging on the line. Tomorrow’s supposed to be sunny and warm. Maybe it’ll dry out then.
