Waiting for another sheet of metal roofing
I understood that it was okay for me to take photos because my aim was simply to photograph the procedure, not to photograph faces.
We went to Westby to pick up our hardwood flooring from an Amish cabinet maker and to watch a barn raising. The boys were good travelers. The littlest one took a long morning nap on the drive there. There's nothing like the noise of an engine to lull a child (or me) to sleep!
This is only a portion of the buggies at the barn raising
I wonder if the horses know they're Amish horses?
He does look a bit tired, but later we had a chance to play ball and also visit another Amish barn where the farmer kindly invited the boys to pet the pigs and feed the calves. They enjoyed that!
It is quite a sight!
I suspect that both the 5 year old and the 8 year old will remember the day they got to watch an Amish barn raising AND got to pet and feed the animals!
