The birthday party

We met in Shipshewana - grandparents from South Dakota and from Michigan, together with the happy family that was celebrating the advent of their oldest daughter into the teen years.

There's a comfortable mix of old and new, natural and man-made in Shipshewana. Horses and buggies sharing streets with shiny cars.

Women in traditional Amish garb serving at a rooftop restaurant with continental flair.

An olive burger like no other!

A hungry bird waiting for leftovers. Hmmm... could he be the reason for the charming umbrellas?

Throw in cherry cream pie, shopping and a posh hotel... the stuff celebrations are made of.

Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers. 
Proverbs 17:6
