We went to Shipshewana Friday. We had a delicious dinner at Essenhaus in Middlebury. We bought groceries at E & S in Shipshwana and then went to one of the girls' favorite places, Davis' Mercantile. It is a huge 3-story building with a tree going right up through the middle of it. There is a beautiful carousel on the top floor. A kind, elderly Amish gentleman runs it. He told Gary he rides his bike 6 miles to town to run the carousel. He loves to be around the children, he told Gary.
