040. The Barn with my parents ::: storms rolling in, rolling out ::: summer fun-ness.

Happy Tuesday, y’all!

My weekend was really good! On Saturday morning, I worked and then in the afternoon, my parents and I ate at The Barn. It was the first time for either of us. It was a lot of fun! The restaurant was an actual barn at one time, and you could tell that a lot of “local residents” eat there. I will say right now that I did not capture any photographic moments inside The Barn on Saturday. But I will next time… whenever we go back next.

The Barn had a lot to look at while you were eating. A lot of farm tools and equipment hanging around the restaurant, lots of pictures, and all of the waitresses and hosts had the old-fashioned Amish dresses and tennis shoes for their uniforms, which I thought was pretty neat. It definitely gave you that “back in time” feel. šŸ™‚

It was a lovely afternoon with my parents.

And... there it is! I was happy to get this picture before the storms began rolling in!

I didn't buy this mug since it was expensive, but I love the quote on this. I'm actually learning how true this is in my life. It's a hard lesson to learn, but it is the truth.

And... here's me playing around with a light-up "pointer" in the kids section at the other gift shop!

Haha! There were water guns so that you could just get this life-size moose wet, just for fun... and silly me, I'm expecting the moose to sing, dance, or do some kind of motion-sensored movement. And... nothing. It's just a display thing.

And... we witnessed some duck crossing upon leaving the premises. :)

On Sunday, I went to church and relaxed for most of the day. Rested. Felt EXTREMELY rested at the end of the day, which is how Sundays should be. Here’s a picture I took of myself before leaving for church…

Sometimes I think I look older in black & white photos.

And… I shall end this with some storm clouds. We’ve had storms rolling in, and storms rolling out a lot lately. It’s lovely.

Rummmbllle. Thunder. Lightning. Rain. šŸ˜€

  1. It’s rained and stormed nonstop here all summer. Craziness!

    I think I’ve eaten at that restaurant. When I was in Ohio, in Springfield for a work visit at my first job, we ate at a barn style restaurant with a gift shop. It wasn’t super close to Springfield though, we drove for it. It was good, I remember that much, and really neat with a cow inside or something weird. Anyway, it looks like a cool place and looks like you guys had fun there! I love any restaurant with a gift shop inside- have you ever been to Cracker Barrel?

    1. Yes, I have eaten at a Cracker Barrel many times! So delicious! I love their gift shops. My parents and I have stopped at them to and from Florida road trips. You see a lot of them on the freeways! I honestly can’t remember what my favorite meal is there. They have yummy pancakes though!

      Ahhhh, I remember you going through Ohio during your first job! Wow. Was it really that long ago??
