Here is the first pic in a series from our family road trip last week to Pennsylvania. We spent four nights in Lancaster County where we woke to the smell of sunshine and cow manure. We learned a lot about the Amish culture... turns out they choose not to use motorized transportation because they want to keep their loved ones close to home. There are certainly a family-oriented community, and I find that attractive and enviable. And imagine all the calories you'd burn getting around on one of these foot-powered scooters?

  1. Such an interesting lifestyle the Amish lead. When I lived in NY, my parents used to talk about them like they were such an oddity, but I think it's because we were so 70's subdivision. Great photo! Can't wait to hear more about your trip.
