Amish Acres

For the past three years we have purchased season tickets for the Round Barn theater at Amish Acres and have really enjoyed the performances.  This week we were able to see Crazy for You on Thursday afternoon with my Dad.  Cam, Meg and I liked the first act a lot.  The second act just seemed to end awkwardly.  Overall, we liked it better than All Shook Up.  My Dad did not agree.  He preferred the previous show.  Either way it was a fun way to spend the afternoon.

Today we actually were able to talk Doug into attending Plain and Fancy with us.  He had not been to Amish Acres since we saw Peter Pan with Brett, Cal and his parents.  That had to be at least fifteen years ago.  Plain and Fancy is definitely one of my favorites.  Meg and I were a little disappointed that they cut a couple of the traditional scenes, but it did not detract from the overall performance.  Doug said that he liked it.  He works with a lot of Amish men and women so I know he could relate to the topic.  I was very glad that he went with us.  We even toured the Arts and Crafts fair before leaving.

Cam wanted to play mini-golf after the play.  We talked about going to South Bend, but I was pretty tired.  Instead we decided to go to Par-Mor.  At first we weren't sure that we would be able to play as the door was looked.  There was a note that said to leave money in the door slot and play anyway, but we didn't bring any putters.  Luckily, Doug found some in a corner under the patio umbrellas.  There were also range balls, so we chose four of those and made Cameron's day.  He would have been happier if he had won, but overall we had a fun time.  

We ate dinner at Kelly Jae's.  It is one of our favorite restaurants.  Cam and Meg have never eaten there.  I was impressed with the variety of foods they tried - Korean fried cauliflower and carrot humus to name a few.  Although the mac and cheese was cheesier than they are used to, overall they gave the restaurant two thumbs up!
