Our day began in New Jersey. We've made it a goal to visit a beach along the coast whenever possible. There are a series of New Jersey beaches very close to where we stayed. The one we found was called "Waterfront Park", and it was a beautifully maintained public park like the ones we have in Cincinnati- except that it's right on the ocean and there's also a beach!
So, it was on to Delaware. We grabbed some Taco Bell for lunch (everybody has their standard order but if you want a good deal, do what I do and get the "$5 cravings box"- it's a ton of food and a drink for only $5). One definite indication that we've spent a decent amount of time on the road is that the kids have all learned to eat something like Taco Bell in the car and not get a crumb anywhere. I'm proud of them!
Like so many of the other wonderful venues, the church in Delaware was all set for our arrival. They had completely cleared off their gigantic stage. They were a big help with load-in and setup! With the amount of space we had, we were able to increase our backstage space from "Hall closet' to "Larger than walk-in closet":
There was one couple, however, that not only came to the show, but they brought us an amazing care package. There was a gift card to Cracker Barrel, fruit snacks, a board game and two baseballs for the kids, and more! They explained that they had been following the progress of the tour via this blog. They gave us that well-thought-out gift bag in Delaware to help with our travels! I've said it before- I am constantly amazed by the generosity of people in this world. Thanks so much to all the good people out there who have such a giving spirit!
Delaware has truly been phenomenal. Thanks again to Bible Fellowship Church for such a warm welcome and such a great time. Now it's on to Maryland!
