We've had an eventful two and a half days. The motor home is really nice....it was about a three and a half-four hour trip down to the farm where the auction was to take place. We were much more comfortable in the RV than we would have been in the van.
That first night was a little interesting as we tried to figure out where everything was supposed to go and where everyone was going to sleep. We parked in a Walmart parking lot and managed to get a decent amount of sleep.
The auction was really busy. Mom had to clerk so I was the cashier. This auction was on an Amish farm so no cash register! There was a good amount of people there, mostly Amish. (Below are pictures of our trip and the auction...I got some great shots of the Amish farm, those photos will be coming on Friday)
The auction went really well...it was busy!
After the auction was over, we called a family, the Grimshaws I had met back in December to ask for the address to their church that we had been wanting to visit. It was only like an hour and a half from where we were in Shipshewana.
Long story short, we ended up going to the Grimshaws house and spending the evening with them. They had room for us to park the RV so we spent the night there, had breakfast with them and went to church.
Then we had a four hour or a little better drive home! Most of us slept on the way home.
Sabriyah went to Mrs. Fick's for the weekend because she still needs a bottle twice a day. For the rest of the animals, we put in extra feed or hay and water and they were fine until we got back, but very happy to see us...Rio especially. He knocked me down he was in such a hurry to get petted!!
We didn't have much time to look around on this trip so we are hoping to go back to the Shipshewana area for another weekend trip when we can take a slower pace.
And....my book should be published this week!!! I approved my front and back covers and my text file a day or two ago...I will post as soon as it is published!
