The Old Spaghetti Factory

 

The Old Spaghetti Factory

 
While my sister was here a few weeks ago, took me out for a special treat at the Spaghetti Factory.   If there's anyone who knows how to make spaghetti, it's the Spaghetti Factory! It was so delicious.  That and the whole downtown thing.  I love going downtown where all the skyscrapers are.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary ~ Tigers with Tammy

 

The Wild Animal Sanctuary

 
 
My sister's favorite animal is a tiger.

 
After my first visit to the Wild Animal Sanctuary,

 
I knew my sister would love visiting a place

 
with so many tigers.

 
Our furry friends with fangs,

 
didn't disappoint.

 
They soaked up the sun,

 
loafed around

 
went for a stroll

 
stroll

 
stroll

 
smiled for the camera,

 
took a nap.

 
and then went for another stroll.

 
Such beautiful creatures.

Our Adventures in Odyssey ~ Whit's End Soda Shop at Focus on the Family Welcome Center

 
 
 
 
And Now: The Conclusion to Part one of :

 
Our Adventures in Odyssey

 
We started our adventures off with a Scavenger Hunt.

 
These are provided on site.

 
They come in varying degrees of difficulty,

 
so make sure you ask for one.

 
Next spent some time in the actors arena. 

 
My girls have a flare for drama at times.

 
Plenty of inspiration in this ambience.

 
They even got to play dress up.

 
On a not so busy day,

 
you can even be taped reading one of the pre-recorded shows.

 
Spent some time on the jungle gym.

 
Then a few trips down the three story slide!


 
And last, but not least... Ice Cream at the Soda Shop!

Adventures in Odyssey ~ Whit's End Soda Shop ~ Focus on the Family Welcome Center

 
 
My Girls love Adventures in Odyssey.

 
We have a number of their program cds,

 
which we play for them as they fall asleep almost every night.

 
Going to visit the Welcome Center

 
Adventure Zone at Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs

 
has been on our to do list for quite some time.

 
It was definitely worth the wait.

 
The decorators did a wonderful job with the mural

 
ambience and d├ęcor.

 
What a wonderful way to bring the stories to life.
