It's been a good weekend. I've got many pictures. Hope you enjoy.
*Friday night: After work, Tracy, Kelli and I went to dinner at City Barbecue and it was delicious. Later Kelli and I went and saw the movie, "The Fault in Our Stars." Very good movie. I don't want to give anything away, but all I can say is I cried...for awhile...bring some tissues.
*Saturday: Tracy and I wanted to do something different on Saturday and I think we found just the thing. We decided to go to Greenville, OH, which is probably a little over an hour away from us. There is a restaurant (read this hole-in-the-wall) that has become very popular. It's called the Maid-Rite Sandwich Shoppe. They have loose meat sandwiches which turned out to be awesome. They are basically beef that is not in patties. But the other thing they are famous for is that everyone puts their chewing gum on the outside of the building. I'm telling you it's covered. I'll let the pictures tell the rest.
|Here's one of the walls with the gum|
|Had to give you a close-up|
|Here's one of the cheese burgers. The meat has a bit of a sweet taste and then with the mustard and dill pickle it's really good|
|Here's the front entrance and as you can see more gum|
|And of course, I had to follow the tradition. I tried very hard not to touch anything but my gum. haha|
More Saturday: After that hubby and I decided to drive some back roads and head back east towards Young's Dairy Farm, which has the best ice cream! Again, I'll let the pictures tell the story here.
|We laughed when we saw this street sign. Had to take a bit of a drive because I could see a church down the road and wondered if it was called Hogpath. But alas, it wasn't. It was Hickory Grove or something like that.|
|There were beautiful corn fields all over|
|We stopped and took a look around Bear's Mill. It is a still running mill. Very interesting! Loved this truck.|
|You just never know what you'll find on the back roads of Ohio|
|Here's the dam that controls the water for the mill|
|Finally at Young's Dairy Farm|
|Here's what I got. Double Oreo Sundae. It was way too much. Couldn't even finish it. But what I ate was delicious!|
|Now this is closer to home. Hubby grabbed a picture as we were going by. How would you like this as as a lawn ornament in your front yard?|
*Saturday night after we got home and Kelli got off work, she and I ran and got our hair cut. Here I am with a shorter hair cut. Thinking of letting it grow again, but I had to get the layers cut out first. We'll see how it goes. :)
*Sunday: We had church and went to lunch with my husband's parents at our local Mexican restaurant. Great food and conversation.
Well, that was our weekend. How was yours?
