On Thursday last week Amy & I went to Pennsylvania to see the Gothard Sisters perform. But first, since we were headed that direction I decided to contact a blogging friend to see if we could meet her. So on Thursday evening we had dinner with her and her daughter. I'm amazed at how perfect strangers (sort of) can keep a conversation going to over two hours. :) I'm so glad we started our mini vacation in such a way. After dinner we had more driving to do. We finally reached our hotel about 10 p.m.
We had a casual start to our morning and arrived at the fair after lunch. The Gothard's first show was at 1:30. This video has clips from that show as well as the second show.
After that show we wandered around the fair grounds making our way to the stage where Vocal Trash was performing. They are a group that the Gothard Sisters knew from other shows they've done.
They had two more shows one at 4:15 and the last one at 7:30. We spent the entire day with them. We watched high divers dive into 8 feet of water. We saw horticultural and crafts exhibits and just generally had a great day. My favorite was just being with them. Their mom travels with them every where, so I enjoyed visiting with her.
This guy is 80 feet in the air and dives into only 8 feet of water.
After the last show we helped them get everything loaded up and then went to Olive Garden for a late dinner.
Amy & I agree that whenever the Gothards are anywhere near Ohio we're going to try to see them. :)
