It was a good time on a beautiful fall day. Left with two adorable Amish dolls from the Round Barn Theater and a large grocery bag of takeout from the restaurant. The place isn't huge but enjoyable regardless.

I think it's about 175 miles from Palatine, so probably arouond 170 from Arlington Heights. Took us just about 3 1/2 hours, but we hit some of the morning traffic around Chicago. (We left our house at 6 am).
