Amish Country

Each time I travel to visit my sister in Newark, Delaware I ask her if we can take a day trip to Lancaster, PA to visit the Amish Country. This visit was no different so the day after I arrived, we loaded the car and headed to the pristine countryside.

What was different, however, was the time of year I visited. I was there in early October to celebrate the upcoming birth of my brother's first child and leaves were as beautiful as the patterns on the Amish quilts.

After a full day in Amish Country we welcomed a delicious hot meal at the home of my nephew and his wife, Melissa. Maddie holds their precious daughter, Emma, long enough for me to snap a photo.

Our day ended back in Newark for dessert at my brother's house. Joe and Tori can't wait for thier newborn to arrive and neither can we!
