Our family vacation in Amish Country, Ohio,
was so relaxing. All 10 of us needed the rest.
Time seemed to move as slowly as an amish buggy.
On our way to early morning breakfast in Sugarcreek, I 
snapped this photo. It was foggy and crispy cool.
Such a beautiful morning.
In the afternoon, we all trekked down a steep path
to the cabin pond area to fish and to paint.
There are multiple paths on this 25 acre retreat,
and our family loves to hike!
Matt and Julie had a nice fire going, on this slightly chilly day.
 Maddie and I were happy to warm our icy, "painting fingertips" over the fire.
The blue gill were prolific
and the fishermen (and women)
of the group, were pulling them in, one after the other!
Up the hill, we hiked, and 
as, Brian grilled the catch for dinner;
we all warmed ourselves around the cabin fire.
While others played games.
All in all, we had a grand and restful respite from the roofing and studio re-do.
We hope you'll come to the OPEN STUDIO
to see all of our hard work,
lots of paintings,
enjoy LizzyT's fine cuisine!
