Welcome to Whit's End

If you aren't familiar with Whit's End then you have never listened to Adventures in Odyssey! From the time we talked about working the CO convention the kids were hoping to visit Focus on the Family while we were there, thankfully it worked out! We ended up spending almost 5 hours there! Into the IMAGINATION STATION (aka elevator!) when we got out we had traveled to a wonderful place.... Whit's end :)
There was a great toddler room where the little one had lots of fun too!
Here the kids are in Whits office
One of the highlights was getting to record their own Adventure in Odyssey
(about a mystery in Whits office)!
Here is CASEY one of the characters in the storyAnd this is JAMIE they both did a great job with the help of the sound crew who, got to make lots of sound effects: horses galloping, doors shutting, drawers, pencil sharpeners, sidewalks, gravel and more!
They would be happy to let you borrow "their" CD anytime ~
(then we could listen to something else!)

We also got to go through the wardrobe....
Into NARNIA!!! thankfully we found the lamp post so we could get home!

And last but not least was a stop at the Soda shop -- Y U M! Tutu even got the got the "to die for" Wodfamchocsod :)
(though we must not have gotten a photo of it - guess we were all busy eating!)
and if you are stands for World Famous Chocolate Soda.

Make Your Own Wod-Fam-Choc-Sod

Eugene -- meet Eugene :) We were happy he just ate and didnt talk our ear off YEAH!
Yes, we shared a Sunday which made for a scrumptious end to a wonderful day!

We are so thankful for organizations that support families in a time when so much works to tear them down. Praying God blesses your family today too!

Joshua 24:15

15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."
