Easter – what a wonderful spring day, a great breakfast and knowing we've done our bit to help the dental profession.

Luckily, we brought Easter baskets, presents and Easter candy to …. Hershey?

We set out to Lancaster County, bidding farewell to the adoring citizens of Hershey who lined the streets to bid us farewell…or were they just excited about the nice day…unfortunately there is no way to know.

After about an hour’s drive, with no Dunkin’ Donuts insight to relieve our fruitless search for coffee we finally arrived at "The Amish Experience…to experience the Amish.

Assuming we’ll be the only foolish customers at Easter we didn’t make reservations…but we weren’t the only fools…not even the first fools.

The Amish Experience" offers a variety of educational items for the inquisitive person – a movie, a tour of an Amish home (not in use, just a demo) and a two hour bus tour in the area.

Knowing that Jakey (twoN-Aaaaa-half) wouldn’t make the two hours, we opted for the movie and the house tour. The movie was a bit scary for the kids, but the house tour was very interesting and enlightening.

By the way, if you’d like the Amish to build your house for you, they’ll be happy to but the waiting list is several years.

We entered “Plain and Fancy”, an Amish styled restaurant with excellent, traditional Amish food for our Easter brunch.  We sat family style with a wonderful family of a mother and two sons from California who are on an East Coast college trip.

Jakey (twoN-Aaaaa-half), who was sick decided before desert that it was a good time to…empty his stomach… but hey, now we’ll remember the trip forever.

After the wonderful meal, by that time the restaurant was packed,  we drove on a self guided…actually a GPS guided tour of Lancaster county, making our way back to the main road via the back roads…and back home.

What a magnificent holiday :) and i agree with you the so called fee are not nice we have the same problem in oz you go online to get discount tickets and it ends up costing you more, and so much for the Amish not embracing modern age they have their own theme park but love the trip
