I would rather have been on a bike but didn't know about this yearly event until that day. My biggest surprise, was how many Amish/Mennonite bike riders were on the road along with the tourists. These girls in the picture above seemed to be having a lot of fun and gave a friendly waive right after I took this shot.
One of my most memorable pieces of pie was in an Amish home. My wife and I stopped in at the home of our close Amish friends (can't call ahead) we were dropping something off and only planned to stay for a moment. There was this apple pie sitting on the table that caught my attention; piled twice as thick with apples than any pie I had ever seen. They must have seen my expression, because they asked us to sit down and have some. I answered, "We don't need to eat up your pie." Our friend's elderly mother, who lived in the grandpa house and had made the pie, answered, "Well, I made it to eat."
I honestly was thinking that the apples would not be cooked all the way through, because of how thick it was. I was wrong. It was cooked perfectly and logged in my memory as one of the best pieces of pie I ever had!
