Because we hopped around to so many different awesome places…this post will showcase part of our trip through Ohio Amish County.     Our first stop was Sugarcreek. The village was started from Amish and German descendants who were looking for farming land.  The rolling hills reminded them of the land where many of them had originated.  Thus, it’s nickname the “Little […]

      This was Polly #11’s first trip ever and she really missed her midwestern frog friends . . . so I took her to The Frog Pond in the Boston Common, hoping that she would get to know some New England frogs. She had the time of her life cavorting and canoodling with […]
