Where I stayed
Kelsey found a deal for a bed and breakfast that fit our budget.
It was called the Greystone Manor, in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania. If you are ever in the area, we recommend it. The manor is surrounded by gorgeous gardens--exotic plants and flowers all around the property, with water features and a pool. We didn't have to be at our school in the morning until 10:30, so it was an ideal stay--the next best thing to staying at home.

In the morning, we set-up in Manheim Middle School to do two shows
After the show, a pair of girls came up to Kelsey and told her that they, like a group of students highlighted in our video, want to start a bagged lunch program for the homeless. Kelsey encouraged them to talk to their principal. You never know--maybe it'll catch wind and happen!

Upon looking at our Atlas, we discovered our close proximity to Hershey, PA!!! (The 3 exclamation points are due to the fact that Kelsey is now adding this section of the entry and she... I... am REALLY excited about Hershey, PA.
We went. There was chocolate everywhere. Everyone is celebrating chocolate, talking about chocolate, selling chocolate for cheap. Ahh.... what a wonderful place. We could not afford the money or time to go to Hershey Park, the theme park with rides and such. When we got there we found out that parking was free up to 2 hours, and over that it cost $10
Anyway, we had a lot of fun for 2 free hours of chocolatey-ness. We bought a few bags of candy - they hooked us with the free stuff after the rides.
Then we made our way to New Jersey... dun, dun, dun...
