The Goza family, Act!vated Story Theatre

I have been hoping to meet Kimberly and Dennis Goza of Act!vated Story Theatre for four years now and finally had the chance!  Kimberly especially was a huge help to us when we prepared to hit the road.  The Gozas have been fulltime RVers for over 20 YEARS and raised their son on the road.  They're (to so many of us) pioneers of the family road life and they paved the way before cell phones, GPS, RVing apps, RVing books, mobile wifi (well, any wifi!), and our network of hundreds of other RVing families.  What seems commonplace to us now was unheard of back then.  And they did a wonderful job of helping traveling families connect and new families get on the road. 
They graciously agreed to do a show for the families here in the campground and the kids loved it.  The giggles were so fun to hear.  Their website says:  We don't just tell stories, we act!vate them with physical comedy, audience participation, American Sign Language and imaginative props; staged by professional actors before a gigantic oversized book.
And they sure did!  They shared two stories with us and it was so engaging and creative. And I LOVE their giant book!  It was so neat to see them in action after having only read about it online. 
Something Kimberly mentioned long ago was that she crawled through a tennis racquet.  I mentioned that to the kids, then wondered if she even still did that. 
She did!  Wow, it was impressive.  :)
We had a potluck dinner with them and other families here and had a great time getting to know them and some of the new families better, and of course spending more time with old friends from the road too.
