The Springs

A real highlight of our time here in Colorado Springs has been our visit to Focus on the Family. This ministry has impacted our little family in so many ways, and it was a real treat to visit their campus and see where it all happens.

We are all avid Adventures in Odyssey fans, and our kids were very excited about the Whit's End area of the Welcome Center. They had a ton of fun exploring all of the exhibits and seeing all of the Odyssey paraphernalia displayed there. Four of us were within the height limit and able to traverse the three-story A-Bend-A-Go slide. Hang on. It's a wild ride.

We had lunch at the Whit's End Soda Shoppe, and yes there are a couple of Wodfamchocsods on the table there.

Our children were also able to add their voices to their very own episode of Adventures in Odyssey in the Kids' Radio studio. That was so much fun. It was great just watching them.

We will actually be heading back to Focus tomorrow morning to attend a broadcast taping of the Focus on the Family radio show. We are very excited about the topic and are thrilled we got reservations for this particular show.

I'm afraid to give away any real details because things could always change, but I will say that the guests are two rebel brothers who have a phenomenal message to share. More to come!
