While we were at the rally the Livingstons http://livingstonfamilyadventures.wordpress.com/ told us about Garden of the Gods so we decided to stop. These beautiful red rocks were certainly created by God. We were glad to take a break from driving and go for a walk and enjoy the scenery.
A few years ago Mrs. Leardi from our church in Metuchen introduced us to Odyssey audio tapes produced by Focus on the Family. Grammy Carol had given us a several Odyssey CD’s for Christmas that we have been enjoying. From reading others blogs and talking to new friends at the rally we learned you could visit Focus on the Family. Since we arrived after it closed, we spent the night in their RV parking lot and were ready first this in the morning. We did some school work and headed to the bookstore. We found some books marked down to $1 and some good deals on audio CD’s.
We saw people in the recording studio and posed with Whit. I was fun to actually put images with the people and places we hear in the Odyssey stories.
Before we headed out we stopped at Whit’s End for some ice cream. Nothing like ice cream for lunch!
