See, the kids have been so good this trip. We wanted to surprise them with something fun! Before we left Cincinnati, Paula discovered that our Cincinnati Reds were scheduled to play in Milwaukee the day we'd be there. So, last night we saw the Reds DESTROY the Brewers!
This morning we left for our show in Elkhart, Indiana. Word to the wise- if you have to drive through Chicago, it will take some time (ignore your GPS if it says otherwise). There are a zillion toll roads which you have to take if you want the fastest route- and I'm sure there's a trick that locals use to get around. . . we don't know what it is. Chicago is a neat city, but it's congested and always takes us a long time to drive through.
So, we arrived at Adamsville Road Church of God considerably later than we wanted to. Thank goodness we've gotten really fast at setting up! Everyone has their own tasks for load-in and we were able to set up in record time. The church folks provided a home cooked meal for us as well. Now, we survive quite well on McDonald's and other on-the-road food, but wow, this meal was GOOD!
Clay was able to sneak this photo from the back as the audience began to file in for the show:
We loaded out quickly thanks to all the help that was waiting. Something happened that made me laugh (as the kids were playing on this wooden Jeep that the church had set up as a display for their upcoming VBS):
Tomorrow we travel to the location of our show near Indianapolis. We perform Sunday, then it's a stop in Cincinnati for a couple of days before we head east to Connecticut. One more show in this part of the country- then east coast and Florida, here we come!
