Black Buggy Day

North Eastern Oklahoma
I can hardly believe that it has been a week since I posted last but my schedule is so stretched thin right now. I had promised to take pictures at the Amish festival this past weekend so here they are.

There was a quite a few people there when we arrived.

There were many booths: Food, crafts, flowers, knives and more.

The children had so much fun racing their stick horses.

The women's event was skillet throwing.

There was different horse events for the men and one or two women.

I thought this was a neat picture.
She was eating chicken and noodles.

This little darling caught my eye every time she passed by me.
She is about 4 years old.

These little guys were so cute!
They were watching the cattle corralling.

On the right, she is cooking homemade noodles!

Below are some Amish cooks in the restaurant tent. They are preparing all kinds of yummy foods.

Oh . . . and the baked goods!

A clown making balloon creations for the children.

Fun for the kids!

The children's "train".
This little thing putt --putted around all day long.

There were carriage rides in this beautiful white carriage.

And of course, the line to the ladies "room".

It was such a beautiful day. The festival we went to the weekend before was rainy due to Ike being on our heels!

The area this festival was in has many Amish families who open their homes and restaurants. You must have a minimum of 10 in order to make reservations. They serve the meal family style and it is so delicious. Our church has gone as a group many, many times! It's best to not eat and save you appetite for their wonderful meal. If you ever get to go to something like this, don't miss it. Experience it at least one time.!
