amish auction . . .



Two weekends ago, on Saturday, I took some Amish friends of mine down to an auction in Circleville, Ohio.  Circleville is about one hour south of the capital city of Columbus.  In addition to taking some Amish friends, Amory and Maine went with me as well.

We arrived around 8:30 am and stayed for a couple of hours before we left to go back to Columbus.  Since we left around 5:00 am we were still tired so we napped in the van a little, then walked around to see what the auction had for sale.  There was TONS of raw material, farm equipment, and dishes.  I didn't end up buying anything.  :(  I found it funny to see that I was the one who provided the real estate services to the auction.  :)

Amory wanted to go to the city (Columbus) to drive and to shop at Trader Joes.  It was a fun trip for her to drive in the big city!  All she has left before she gets her licsense is to finish the 8 hours of driving with an instructor, and taking the driving test.  POOF!  She is now a driver.  Yeah for her, and for me.

Prom...

So Dad has informed me to relate some of my recent adventures in the prom department, so here it goes: I was asked about prom by several girls that I knew but was not really sure about what my views were about it so I said no to the first couple of them. But then I was talking to a girl that I know and she was saying how she had a friend that wanted to go but hadn’t been asked out by anyone and was to shy to ask someone out herself, and she asked if I would go with her. My first thought was that I at least wanted to meet the girl first, and so we went out and got ice cream (of course!) the three of us and Anna and I met each other and talked for the first time and she seemed really nice, so I asked her to go to prom with me and she said yes. (Please remember that this was a week before prom night.) So then I rushed and got everything set up which is really not the best way to do it but that seems to be the way it works for me. So prom day rolled around and we took pictures at a friend’s house, then we went out to eat at Stella Blue in Archibald, not the best place in the world, but it was nice to eat out and feel fancy in a tux. After that we went back to Defiance and Anna and I went and did a carriage ride around Defiance for awhile and then went into prom. We then stayed at prom till around eleven thirty, luckily for me Anna had the same views on dancing that I did so we definitely stood out when we were ballroom dancing to Nikki Minaj and Justin Beiber. After prom we went and got changed and went to “after prom,” Where since I have mad farm skills I set the record for the mechanical bull riding and since I come from California I also set the record on the mechanical surfboard. So we stayed there until around three-three thirty, we then went to a friend’s house and hung out till around six in the morning. So then we split ways and I got Anna home around seven and got home myself around seven thirty. I had a blast going and was so glad that I decided to, I met a lot of new people, and it was a great experience for my first social gathering with young adults my age.
