We promised the kids that this time our very first stop when we arrived in Colorado Springs would be Focus on the Family! We ran out of time to visit them the first time.
In front of Focus on the Family is a statue of a mother with her children so we had to pose with it.
Preparing to enter Whit's End.
Having made mosaics when we studied Ancient Rome a few months before, my kids were super impressed with this mosaic they found of Whit. Their sheer exuberance and running to different activities came to a halt when they saw this under their feet. They stood there and said..."Wow!"
Peeking into KYDS Radio.
We signed up to be on KYDS' Radio!
My kids each got parts. Their "voice talent" joined that of Kris, Whit, and Connie.
My husband and I were the foleys...which meant that we made the sound effects. We had to sharpen a pencil, shut a door, and make horse hooves go "clip clop."
Watching the CD being made!
She was producing the CD for us. The CD was free!
More play time on Abendnego. This twisty slide gained its name from a fan contest!
We spent two days here for the kids to play! Not far away is Peterson AFB where we nearly got transferred. This would surely have been a frequently visited spot for the kids.
Time for a snack at Whit's soda shop. We got the wod-fam-choc-sod (short for "world famous chocolate soda")
