Adventures in Odyssey at Whit's End

My baby girl is 7. Well, today is her birthday but I'll be posting about that tomorrow. It's always tricky when birthdays fall upon the Lord's Day. We still celebrate it, but we can't always fit in everything the birthday boy or girl wishes. As you may have noticed, Dabney is a big fan of Adventures in Odyssey. We were the happy recipients of a large amount of cds of Odyssey adventures for Christmas and our kids, Dabney especially, just eats them like candy. We've seen good fruit from this~ their stories are poignant and she's even memorized Scripture from a few episodes. Anyway, we happen to live in Colorado Springs, home of Focus on the Family, which produces AIO. They have a little play area at the Focus welcome center devoted to AIO and the soda shoppe, Whit's End. We took the kids yesterday as part of an early birthday celebration for Dabney.

The boys' favorite activity is coloring pictures of Odyssey Adventures on a touch screen.

The elevators are magic in Odyssey.

Harlow Doyle is the main character in one of Dabney's favorite stories.

Yes, he was quite gentle with the puppets.

Tim was changing A's diaper when when the big kids decided to pose with Whit.

On our way out, we came across a big cut out of Whit, and the preceding moment was completely unscripted. I'm just glad my camera was ready.

What a fun day!
Looks like everyone had a great time!
I'd love for the kids to take me there someday....
Happy Birthday, Dear Sweet Dabney Rae.
We Love You!!!!!

I was probably her age, maybe younger, when we first started going there. :) Wow. We probably have a lot of the same pictures! ;) Great memories.
