Johnny Appleseed’s Grave Site – Fort Wayne, Indiana

Visiting the Art Museum

When researching ideas of what to do in Fort Wayne, I discovered John Chapman; aka Johnny Appleseed had lived there.  We decided to try to find the grave site.

Close to the grave site is the Johnny Appleseed Campgrounds.  That is where we ended up at first.  We weren’t far from the actual grave site.

It was still raining when we were at the grave site so I got some photos.  Honestly, there is not much around there except if you go into the area where the campground is located.  There is a river which would have been pretty to photograph if it was not raining.

There was two other graves located there.  I also took photos of those graves.

After we got done at the grave, we went to get supper.  We were going to drive to a pizza joint that was 20 minutes away.  However while stopped in traffic at a light, I saw a Blaze Pizza restaurant.  Hubby quickly turned into the parking lot.

Boy were we glad that we changed our minds about where we were going to eat.  The food was delicious.  We both were able to get our own customized pizzas.  His was a meat lover pizza while mine was a veggie pizza.

They had an awesome deal where you got half of a pizza with either a salad or garlic knots.  I got the deal with the salad while Hubby got the garlic knots.  The half of a pizza was perfect since were traveling.

Afterwards we traveled to Amish country – Bern, Indiana.  It is also a city based on the culture of the Swiss.  Join me next time for more of our adventure.  I can’t wait until you meet Char.  She took us around the Swiss Heritage Center in Bern.  Such a great storyteller which is a lost art.

Have a magical day,

What We Ate in Universal Studios – Florida – Day 3

I’ve shared what ate on Day 1 and Day 2 of our visit to Universal Studios in Florida.  This Wednesday, I’m going to share what we ate on the third day of our visit to Universal Studios.  We visited Islands of Adventure on that Tuesday.

When we got to Islands of Adventure on that Tuesday morning, we darted over to the Hogsmeade area of the park.  We rode the rides and then ate at the Three Broomsticks for our breakfast.

Inside the Three Broomsticks.  When we were at the Leaky Cauldron the day before, we were given a flag with a number.  They sat us and brought us the food.  At the Three Broomsticks, we had to carry the food to our seats.  They had an outdoor seating area with a view of Hogswarts so we sat there instead of inside the restaurant.

I got the traditional English breakfast once again.  Hubby got his American breakfast and the boys got their pancake breakfast.   I didn’t take photos of their breakfasts since they were the same as the day before.

The hamburger and fish sandwiches we got at the Comic Strip Cafe in the Toon Lagoon area of Islands of Adventure.  The Imaginative One had the hamburger and I had the fish sandwich.

The fish sandwich was too dry so I don’t recommend it.

Once we were done at Islands of Adventure, we went back to the resort so that the boys could swim.  The day was perfect for swimming.

Hubby and I decided to get a grown up drink from Atomic Tonic.  We got a key lime frozen drink that was absolutely YUMMY!

We went to the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium after we were done with Islands of Adventure.  Hubby wanted some chocolate rocks from there.  I got myself a macaroon and a box of chocolates.

I ate the pistachio macaroon for breakfast the next day.  Four of the chocolates were eaten when we got home from the trip.  I still have two more to indulge in.

 

I hope you enjoyed what we ate while we were in Universal Studios.

Have a magical day,

We spent the day in Universal Studios.  I had heard about the huge pink doughnut that you could get in the Simpson’s area of Universal.

We ended up at City Walk for lunch. We decided to go see Fantastical Beasts and Where to Find Them while in Universal Studios.  I got chips and queso from Moe’s.

Hubby and the Wee One shared Chinese from Panda Express.

The Imaginative One had Burger King for his lunch.

Once again, we had cereal, oatmeal, and Oatmeal Creme pies for breakfast.  I tried to make Taco Soup in the slow cooker for our dinner.  However when we got back to the room, the slow cooker was unplugged off.  So we did not have that for dinner.
Hubby, the Wee One, and I shared a pizza for dinner.  I don’t know what the Imaginative One ate for dinner.

Happy eating,
Traci
