This weekend the Ebert side of the family went camping near Caledonia MN. During the days we had beautiful weather, and during the night several of us awoke to puddles in our tents. We had a great time though. Some people went canoing and kayaking, others went for bike rides, and I enjoyed reading my latest REAL SIMPLE magazine and going swimming. Its always fun to spend time with family.

On Saturday Dustin and I took a drive to Harmony where there is an Amish community. We drove around some of the gravel roads until we found the a family with the last name Hershberger. Dustin had been to the house a few years ago and knew that they made baskets, so we stopped to look in their shop. They still were making baskets. We talked to Tobie, who was making a basket, and he remembered Dustin’s family. Its very rare to see others who spell Hershberger the same way as we do, but apparently its a very common name among the Amish. We did buy a basket.
